Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.

For the love of God

Please, do something before you EVER forward me some email .... please please please ...

Snopes it.

For the love of God.

There is no flesh-colored toilet spider.
You won't get free Gap stuff for forwarding the email.
Oliver North didn't warn the Senate about Osama Bin Laden.
Penny Brown is not missing.
Dallas is not doing a speeding ticket frenzy.

Please. I have to be the biggest bitch *no comments* on the planet. The first thing I do when I get one of these emails is to Snopes it and then send my reply to all, so hopefully they don't forward it, too. I hate that crap. It takes just a minute people. I'll say it again:

WWW.SNOPES.COM

And, yes, I'm yelling.

    I finally told my Mom about that site. She kept sending me crap, saying "You know, that sounds plausible..."

    *shaking head*

    Took a long time to train one of my sis-in-laws. She also forwards those chain emails that promise if you send it to 10 people, you'll see something cool come across your screen. Hello? That's called an "executable" file, and you can bet it would be infected with a virus anyway.
    aarrgh...

    Amen, sister! I'm the girl that will look it up on Snopes and then reply-to-all in an effort to educate and prevent the behavior too. Maybe if we all started doing it, we could make an impact on our friends and families...I would like to think so anyway. :)

    Thank you all. At least four of us are trying to break the cycle!

    Oh...my...god. I thought I was the only one that did that. Everytime someone sends me some gay e-mail forward, I write a witty response that typically boils down to "you're a moron, leave me alone." And forward it to the guy that sent it to me, and everyone I know that he sent it to. Because i'm tottally cool like that.

    Glad to see I'm not alone. I usually go to urbanlegends.com, but the effect is the same. I don't have time to deal with chain letters, either. I won't have 37 years of bad luck if I don't forward your crap to my 20 closest acquaintances, so bugger off.

    MG - HA! I know that feeling ... if I ever get a good one that I WANT to forward, I just cut off the crap at the bottom about how you HAVE to forward or face the consequences ...

    Maybe THAT is my problem. I've been breaking the chains. :)
