Hi Dollyeyes, it is really in the wrong place, so I've moved it. And you're forgiven.
Not sure if ive posted this in the right place or not..so forgive if im wrong
Question everything! E-mail is an unreliable medium for sharing information. It is unreliable, cannot be tracked and no company uses it to give away money or products. It's an ineffective tool for political activism and won't make you a millionaire overnight.
Don't want the junk! If you forward chain letters, stop! If others send them to you, stop them! The more junk you send, the more you will get. Sending or receiving chain letters increases your exposure to spam, scams and other junk mail.
Stop junk e-mail and misinformation!
The very first version listed above contains a comment from one of the fowarders that "i don't know if this is for real, but it can't hurt to just send it to all the hotmail users ya know..." Well, it can hurt, and here's why: One version of this chain I received contained nearly 650 e-mail addresses from numerous forwards. It took me about 20 minutes and a word processor to isolate those addresses and create a list that would be worth hundreds of dollars to any e-mail marketer (spammer). Don't worry, I deleted the list and would never sell such a thing, but I wanted to demonstrate how easy it would be to collect them using chains like this.
Hotmail is alive and well and you don't need to forward some dumb e-mail to save your account or keep it free. Break this Chain!
The fate of all mankind, I see
Is in the hands of fools
