I came across a wonderful little website the other day that will send an anonymous email to someone who fills your inbox with unwanted forwards. It also has some decent netiquette for those who are lacking.
I rarely get forwards anymore, but when I do, I’m amazed at some of the stuff people believe. How does this stuff keep getting sent? It’s crazy to me.
These usually fall into a few different categories:
- Politics – usually the government is accused of something ridiculous and with facts coming from wikipedia, how could they be wrong?
- Money – let’s be clear hear, unless your a orphan in Africa, Bill Gates isn’t going to be sending you money any time soon. Certainly not for annoying your friends with junk email.
- Religion – the email warns of impending doom, supernatural visits from angels, and anything else that could come from a bad Frank Peretti knockoff.
- Cute – 95% of these contain animals. The rest are natural scenes. 100% are awful. These are easily the worst offenders.
