    OH. MY. GOD!

    Seriously... Words cannot describe...






    Although, they should make something whereby all people that do forward it on get their internet access cut off. Thus killing all the FW: crap you get in your inbox.

    What possesses them to obsess over who's doing who in the 'celebrity' world? Quite a mystery that.

    Had one about a virus the other day, pissed me off so much I grabbed all the emails that this guy sent it to (along with mine), and wrote comments throughout the email of how it was crap and how it's fake and how it doesn't make sense.

    www.breakthechain.org is a great site to look at, to send people the direct link to exactly why the message is crap.

    And here's this one: http://www.breakthechain.org/exclusives/msnmess.html

    Well you wouldnt would you cos g-mail is soooo much better, erm no, its jus tnot been around as long and there havent been so many gmail accounts harvested, all email will get spam at some point.. Just because its not a MS service doesnt automatically make it better/more secure...

    I've had my hotmail account setup since it was pre MS and its amazing what you can do with the built in junk filters.....

    I cant believe theres People who believe this

    might as well say "hey - you wanna believe something- believe this- i can see you- you've got one minute to get out of your house"

    i kept gettting them from a gullable teen- so i told her to go away with the crap - i ended up telling her that she is mroe likley to be either Bi or Lezzer because of her genetics

    The forwarded virus warnings are the best... the ones containing a virus
