Please stop! No more! I don't want them! These damned stupid petitions and forwards telling me that I'll get money if I forward the damned thing! Do people actually BELIEVE that crap!?

I got a "petition" this morning from my best friend. It took me all of 40 seconds to google and find 3 dozen websites (including the freaking FCC) proving that the stupid thing is a hoax! Why doesn't anybody bother to check this crap!? Stop sending this garbage to me! Don't make me do the work for you!

And then my mom! Oh, don't even get me started! She sends me this nonsense and gets all snippy with me when I send her proof that it's BS. Whatever, mom, whatever!

I forward things if they're cute or funny (and only to a very select few people because I hate the stupid things!), but petitions and all this "OMG! They're taking away our rights!" crap is usually just that...crap. And it only takes a minute to check it out and find out if it's true

That's actually a pretty good description of my mom's technical skills too

It's the fact that people actually BELIEVE everything they get in an internet forward and don't try to find out that pisses me off

I'm going to start a forward saying something ridiculous and see how many people I can get to send it on!
