Der ultimative Kettenbrief, Teil eins
Wie gehe ich mit Versendern von Massenmails richtig um?

Lernen Sie auch, wie man mit Kettenbriefen Geld verdient...

Jeder kennt sie, die Flut der weitergeleiten Email-Kettenbriefe. Ob es um den "Good times"-Virus, um die Möglichkeit, beim Surfen Geld zu verdienen oder um neue Bezugsquellen für Viagra und ähnliches geht.
Wie kann man sich dagegen zur Wehr setzen? Man könnte Spamfilter einbauen, ein Mailbombing starten oder für immer vom Netz gehen... oder einfach das tun, was Basmati Kasaar getan hat: nämlich eine solche Antwort schreiben und sie an alle Massenmailforwarder schicken.

Hello, my name is Basmati Kasaar.
I am suffering from rare and deadly diseases, poor scores on final exams, extreme virginity, fear of being kidnapped and executed by anal electrocution, and guilt for not forwarding out 50 billion fucking chain letters sent to me by people who actually believe that if you send them on, then that poor 6-year-old girl in Arkansas with a breast on her forehead will be able to raise enough money to have it removed before her redneck parents sell her off to the travelling freak show.
Do you honestly believe that Bill Gates is going to give you and everyone you send "his" email to $1000? How stupid are you? "Ooooh, lookyhere! If I scroll down this page and make a wish, I'l get laid by every Playboy model in the magazine!" What a bunch of bullshit.
So basically, this message is a big FUCK YOU to all the people 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 Jesus in 5 A.D. 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. If you're going to forward something, at least send me 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 care. Show a little intelligence and think about what you're actually contributing to by sending out forwards. Chances are it's your own unpopularity.
The point being? If you get some chain letter that's threatening to leave you shagless or luckless for the rest of your life, delete it. If it's funny, send it on. Don't piss people off by making them feel guilty about a leper in Botswana with no teeth, who's been tied to a dead elephant for 27 years, whose only savior is the 5 cents per letter he'll receive if you forward this mail, otherwise you'll end up like Miranda. Right? Now forward this to everyone you know. Otherwise, tomorrow morning your underwear will turn carnivorous and will consume your genitals.
