Rants 'n' Raves
Pass this on to xxxx people....
ARGHHHHHHHHH!!! I am SOOOOO damned sick and tired of getting
these things... They are BULLSHIT - every single one of them
- email, Instant Messaging etc etc. THINK people.... Yahoo is
NOT going to start charging for messenger when AOL, ICQ and
MSN are free cos they would lose all of their people. They sure
as hell aren't going to give you something free if you send
something to 5 people either - think think think - its all utter
bollocks.... Yahoo! has enough trouble keeping track of pool
games etc, and they take about 5 minutes each to complete -
what chance do you think they have of keeping track of how many
people you send what message to? Don't do it PLEASSSSSSSE it's
as good as putting a sign on your head saying "Look at
me, I'm a gullible fool". It's a complete waste of your
time, as well as the "friends" you send them to!
As for emails with virus warnings... You can be damned sure
that the major Anti-virus companies know about new virus threats
long before we hear about them in emails sent around. If its
a real virus, then your latest antivirus file should catch it
without any problems - if you don't have an antivirus, you might
want to consider either 1) getting one, 2) staying off the net
or 3) sending your computer to the scrapyard, cos its on its
If you EVER get an email saying search for and delete this
file, and you do it, you must be nuts.... If someone in the
street told you 2 wheelnuts were safer than 4 would you run
and take 2 out of each wheel of your car? THINK before you act.
These things are commonly known as a HOAX virus - and they can
be as damaging as a real one. The whole point of a virus is
to spread, and often cause as much damage as possible. If you
send these things on, YOU ARE SPREADING THIS VIRUS, hoax or
not - YOU ARE TELLING PEOPLE TO CARRY OUT ACTIONS THAT WILL
DAMAGE THEIR SYSTEMS - and if everyone sends enough of them
(this is the real goal of the stupid idiots who start them)
they might even generate enough traffic to crash some email
servers - conratulations - YOU JUST TOOK AWAY YOUR OWN EMAIL
Don't just think about where you heard the information from,
no matter how much you trust them, think about where they got
it from too - just engage brain before fingers....
Ohh, and a special thankyou to my baby for sending me this...
which seems to fit in real nicely :D
