I just got an email from a friend that was a plea to forward this because it's being tracked and x amount will be donated to charity for every recipient. Insert picture of a male bovine defecating here. No lie...the message was buried 16 forwards deep. GIVE ME A BREAK!!Before I pull out all my hair, please friends, learn how to forward email. There is NO SUCH THING as an email tracker, according to several sources I have checked. So if Baby Betty is going to get .003 cents for every person who forwards this mail to help her parents with her special surgery...well, it's not going to happen. If you DO forward mail, whether it's jokes or chain mail curses or whatever... Copy the text to a new email. If you send it to multiple recipients, for the privacy of all involved, use BCC. This option works even if you don't put in a single recipient in TO, the BCC still works. No one will be able to blame you for passing on their email address when they didn't want you to. Be kind. Don't spam email address that are attached to emails you receive. If you don't know who it is and they haven't specifically asked for correspondence from you it's SPAM. And you're not going to make it nicer for them even if you send rye bread and mustard, so forget it.
