4 times today I got a 'warning' email about how Barack Obama is some radical Muslim that won't say the pledge of allegiance. And how we 'need' a Christian president to lead us.
Besides being a load of crap...hello??...we HAVE a Christian president and look what he's done to us, not to mention the rest of the world...it is just...well...a load of crap.
So rather than hit delete, I responded to every last email with the link from Snopes telling them that the email they forwarded was blatantly false. I shared the link with them and asked them to re-send the email pointing out that they had made a mistake.
So far, I haven't seen any of the emails recirculated.
Normally, I would just read and sigh and delete. But not anymore. Nope. If people chose to send emails without checking the validity of their claims I am going to start calling bullshit. Maybe I am just tired and cranky. Or maybe just tired of the lemming effect.
Ok, rant over. Back to work.
(Edit- Oh wow!! One of the emails WAS recirculated and my friend pointed out to everyone that he will check out Snopes before he sends out another mass email. I am really glad I said something. Thanks HDW for the support)
