Chain Emails and Messages. Annoying and Dangerous

Since the advent of the world wide web, the “chain letter” got from a paper letter to a cheaper, easier to disseminate electronic message.

We all are receiving constantly emails that are urging us to forward to all our friends. On social networking websites like Facebook, Tagged and MySpace, we got more and more postings on our “virtual walls” with more and more messages that we need to forward to our friends. And for what? Well , there are a lot of reasons, a lot of excuses and they are usually the same again and again.
1. Forward a message to XX amount of people and something good will happen to you
2. Forward a message to XX amount of people and you will get some good news in a few hours
3. Forward a message to XX amount of people and you will get good luck
4. Forward a message to XX amount of people and see how many return the favour
5. Forward a message to XX amount of people and if you receive 1 you are ugly, if you receive 2 you are not ugly, if you receive 3 you look OK etc.
These messages are coming in different colours , different spelling (usually wrong) and different pictures, but the theme is the same, and it is boring !!!
