Oh, man, is that ever true!

And then, they have gotten terribly pissed off with me when I sent them a reply to reassure them that there is no evidence to suggest that using deoderant causes breast cancer, that the Munchkin really didn't hang himself on the Haunted forst set in The Wizard of Oz, etc.

I feel sad for those people, being so gullible.

one wonders if these are merely two symptoms of the same fundamental problem.

Chain Letter Nullification Certificate
I came across this Chain Letter Nullification Certificate.

I thought the this quote was apropos even in this context....

There are times when the forces of Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt conspire to coerce Good People to aid the propogation of Certain Letters of Ambiguous Benefit or Misfortune. Such Letters are conceived to Frighten people into serving the Ego of a Master Jerk. We can not, as free men and women, allow such Threats to bound our Happiness.

By signing and dating this certificate, you declare that you are a Creator of Positive Energies. Together, we break the Tyranny of the Chain. We declare that we are defined by our Actions, not our Fears.

there's a reason i don't give my relatives my email address.

also, i notice a high degree of overlap between old people and chain letters.
