A word or two about forwards. Before sending out a forward, stop for a moment or two and think:

1. Is this true? Is this petition/virus alert/news story really what it claims, or am I helping to spread some utter BS?

2. Will the recipient(s) really be interested? Am I sending "The World's Greatest Poop Jokes" to my pastor? Am I sending "God loves you" ASCII art to my nietzschian/pagan/atheist college roommate? Am I sending a "pass this on to 10 other people or you will suffer a horrible fate" note to *anyone* I like?

3. Do I send this person any other correspondence besides forwards?

If the answer to any of these questions is no, then take your mouse off the "send" button. Seriously.
