FINALLY – Pass it on …

Finally, someone is passing around something productive. 🙂

Please forward to all of your ’email buddies’ who really need to read
If you are going to pass something along . . . . let it be THIS!
To whom it all concerns:
Just a word to the wise. E-mail petitions are NOT acceptable to Congress
or any other municipality. To be acceptable, petitions must have a signed
signature and full address.
Same with “prayer chains” — be wary!
Almost all e-mails that ask you to add your name and forward on to others
are similar to that mass letter years ago that asked people to send
cards to the little kid in Florida who wanted to break the Guinness Book of
Records for the most cards.
All it was, and all this type of e-mail is, is to get names and “cookie”
tracking info for telemarketers and spammers to validate active e-mail
accounts for their own purposes.
Any time you see an e-mail that says forward this on to “10” of your
friends, sign this petition, or you’ll get good luck, or what ever,
it has either an e-mail tracker program attached that tracks the
cookies and e-mails of
those folks you forward to, or the host sender is getting a copy. Each
time it gets forwarded, then it’s able to get lists of “active” e-mails
to use
in spam e-mails, or sell to others that do.
Please forward this notice to others and you will be providing a good
service to your friends, and will be rewarded by not getting 30,000
spam e-mails in the future.
(If you have been sending out the above kinds of email, now you know
why you get so much spam!)
