A chain letter that originally started as a text has made it’s way onto Facebook. I’ve commented about how I hate those “if you don’t pass this on…” emails (and now texts and Facebook posts) and how even if I like their message, I remove that part before sending it on.
It annoys me. It’s a flat out threat, calculated to scare people into passing on the originator’s point of view, or in this case a bold faced lie.
A lot of times it’s a way for someone to insure a cause they believe in gets out there. I this case, since the information being spread is an irrelevant false statistic, I think it’s just some moron out there that gets off on manipulating people.
Duhn, duhn, da!
Guess I’m going to have a bad week. Or not.
