Hi all,
Have you ever have anyone try and hammer you for being "Holier Than Thou" because you pointed out they were sending hoax e-mails?

I struck this and replied to the person in question, but the thing that got me was with his "Holier Than Thou" comment he said that he knew how to use snopes.com. His hoax first started around early 2001, I get it this year and then they try to hammer me for saying it's a hoax and giving relevant details?????

Sheeessshhhh.
Some people don't want to learn.

Cheers.

Oh, those drive me insane!
I usually respond with a one liner.....a link to snopes regarding the hoax and say nothing else.

Worst are the ones that say, "I checked it out on Snopes" and then add the hoax. Rolling Eyes

I dont know this particular hoax, but I hate those hoaxmails too. Especially the ones that warn you about a virus that sends itself to ALLL the addresses in your outlook addressbook. And then this idiots forward the warning to everyone they know.

One time I wrote them back: "So the virus sends an email to everyone in your address book? And what did you do now? YOU are a VIRUS TOO!!" . Along with a link to information how to spot a hoaxmail.

At least by now the mother in law of my sister first send these mails to me and asks me if this is real or now. I simply tell her it is not and adviced her how to search this herself on google. (I mean, is it REALLY so hard to copy and paste parts of the email and do a freaking google search with it? The first hits on google will show it is a hoax!!) Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad

I've received a particular piece of junk about the significance of the number 11 in the September 11 attacks so often that I keep a standard reply ready to cut and paste.

I like to reply to ALL when I am debunking, and generally I do it with just the link to the relevant snopes page.

Funny thing is Mrs. The Man has a friend that sends the hoax e-mails, and used to send them to me. She stopped sending them to me since I did the reply to all thing, BUT she still sends them out as Mrs. The Man gets them from her!

My father has finally stopped sending them after my brother and I did this to him on every one he would send. Usually both of us would do it to the same e-mail. Public shaming works well in our family Very Happy

hmmm...and I thought responding with this would have to do with it:

Quote:
Hello, my name is Don. I am suffering from rare and deadly diseases, poor scores on final exams, lack of sexual activity, fear of being kidnapped and executed by anal electrocution, and guilt for not sending out 50 billion fucking forwards sent to me by people who actually believe that if you forward them, that some poor 6 year old girl in Arkansas with lung cancer brought on by second-hand smoke from the cigarettes smoked by the big bad men who kidnapped her and took pornographic pictures of her for use on their child pornography web site will get 6 fucking cents every time you send me the letter. Morons, do you honestly believe that Bill Gates is going to give you and everyone you send "his" email to $1000? How fucking stupid are you? Ooooh, looky here! If I scroll down this page and make a wish, I'll get laid by every Victoria's Secret model in the catalog! What a bunch of bullshit. So basically, this message is a big FUCK YOU to all the idiots out there who have nothing better to do than to send me stupid chain mail forwards. Maybe the evil chain letter leprechauns will come into my apartment and sodomize me in my sleep for not continuing the chain which was started by Aristotle and was brought to this country by midget pilgrims on the Mayflower and if it makes it to the year 2000, it'll be in the Guinness Book of World Records for longest continuous streak of blatant stupidity. Fuck them. If you're going to forward something, at least send something mildly amusing. I've seen all the "send this to 50 of your closest friends," and this poor, wretched excuse for a human being will somehow receive a nickel from some "omniscient being" forwards about 90 times. I don't fucking care.I don't give a SHIT. Show a little intelligence and think about what you're actually contributing to by sending out forwards. Chances are it's your own unpopularity. P.S. Please forward THIS and an extended middle finger to at least 50 of your best friends.

Thats the funny part. I replied to all, linked to snopes and relevant Antivirus sites debunking it asking them all to check it before blindly forwarding it, and this guy replied "who asked you."
LOL!

That pissed me off, so I traced his IP from the header, got the ISP, e-mailed [email protected] with all the headers and hoax e-mail, then proceeded to hammer him while I found his domain in the whois database and where the guy lived. (You gotta love people who make domains up based in their own name)

He went strangely quiet about 2 days after my e-mail to his ISP.
LOL!

My brother in law's ex-girlfriend used to forward me all of the chain emails that tell you if you forward it nice things will happen, or the ones that threaten that if you don't forward it, horrible things will happen.

I finally wrote back and asked her to please continue to send me emails about her/my brother in law, etc. but to please not forward the chain emails any more.
The last one she'd sent had said that something horrible would happen between certain hours which is the exact time both my husband and I were commuting to work. (not a regular commute time either, we work odd shifts). I asked her how she'd feel if we all died because I didn't forward the chain. Laughing
She cried to my brother in law, refused to ever email me again Very Happy and pretty soon the whole family "knew" that I was a bitch.
She's an ex now, and I'm much happier with the family get-togethers. Wink

Edited to add: I like this one. I almost didn't read it when I first received it, thinking it was just like the others:

Quote:
If you receive an email entitled "Bedtimes" delete it IMMEDIATELY. Do not open it. Apparently this one is pretty nasty. It will not only erase everything on your hard drive, but it will also delete anything on disks within 20 feet of your computer.
It demagnetizes the strips on ALL of your credit cards. It reprograms your ATM access code and screws up the tracking on your VCR and uses subspace field harmonics to scratch any CD's you attempt to play. It will program your phone auto dial to call only 900 numbers. This virus will mix antifreeze into your fish tank.

IT WILL CAUSE YOUR TOILET TO FLUSH WHILE YOU ARE SHOWERING.

It will drink ALL your beer. FOR GOD'S SAKE, ARE YOU LISTENING?? It will leave dirty underwear on the coffee table when you are expecting company! It will replace your shampoo with Nair and your Nair with Rogaine.

If the "Bedtimes" message is opened in a Windows 95/98/2000/XP environment, it will leave the toilet seat up and leave your hair dryer plugged in dangerously close to a full bathtub.

It will not only remove the forbidden tags from your mattresses and pillows, it will also refill your Skim milk with whole milk.

******* WARN AS MANY PEOPLE AS YOU CAN
