    Uh, yeah; that would be called the ancient forward-me virus, which can clog up email inboxes much more effectively than most virii can, if properly drafted and spiced up with enough ALL-CAPS.

    Get new friends....the ones you have are too gullible and socializing with them will only drag you down.

    Haha a forward virus. Like shyster said. Its to lure all the gullible into clogging the tubes.

    Rule number 1 for emails: If Snopes is EVER mentioned, its not true. Snopes is a load of crap.

    Rule number 2: Nothing of general importance is chain mailed through email.

    There is no such thing as a HUGE Virus coming. Its not like it floats in the clouds and raining down on unsuspecting and innocent users. Virus's just happen.

    There's always a huge virus coming, just like there is always another apocolypse....

    ...they just never quite get here....
