.I got another one of those emails. One that said I should forward it to everyone in my address book.
Well, actually it said, "Now I just wonder what would happen in this country if every one of you sent this to every one in your address book."
I will tell you what would happen. All of the email servers in this country would be overtaxed and we'd hear from somebody at Homeland Security that there had been a denial of service attack. That's what would happen.
There are actually some folks out there who believe forwarding that stuff works. How do I know? Because the subject of the email started out, FW: Fwd: Fw: Fw:Fwd: Fw: Fw: and none, or very few, of the forwarders had bothered to even think about deleting any of the previous recipients or forwarders.
I'm beginning to think there's a correlation between how people drive and use email. There are an awful lot of reckless folks on the highways.
