Nobody's Opinion

Nobody’s Email: Advice From Snoopes…Are We embarrassed Yet Girls?

Nobody Gets Email

I am posting an email that I got from Tom Beebe, (Thanks Tom) in sections because I think it’s very informative….and because I know my few personal girlfriends (Pattie & Mona) will read this as I did, and remember………….

AaaaaaLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL  those emails they sent me where I was supposed to pass on the good feelings for luck, or to ten friends, and how HARD it was for me because I don’t  &$&*%  HAVE ten friends, and I always felt really bad typing in my only two (Pattie and Mona) and of course, knowing that I wasn’t going to get my “wish” because I was short of friends to email and bug, was just enough to ruin my morning.

Now, my shortage of friends, according to this, is a blessing. Dog fool

Well read this…and girls (I KNOW no man does this stuff ) think: How many people have we ‘cookied” in our computer lifetime?

Who knew? (Besides Dandapani)

Advice from snopes.com VERY IMPORTANT

1) Any time you see an email that says “forward this on to ’10’ (or however many) of your friends”, “sign this petition”, or “you’ll get bad luck” or “you’ll get good luck” or “you’ll see something funny on your screen after you send it” or whatever–it almost always has an email tracker program attached that tracks the cookies and emails of those folks you forward to. The host sender is getting a copy each time it gets forwarded and then is able to get lists of ‘active’ email addresses to use in SPAM emails or sell to other Spammers. Even when you get emails that demand you send the mail on If you’re not ashamed of God/Jesus…that is email tracking, and they are playing on our conscience. These people don’t care how they get your email addresses…just as long as they get them. Also, emails that talk about a missing child or a child with an incurable disease “How would you feel if that was your child”…email tracking. Ignore them don’t participate!

  1. That’s spelled Dandapani! :)

    My father’s wife (not my mother) sends these out about one per day. I debunk them left and right, but God Bless her, the latest one was Truck Art and was so wrong, but I was worn out. I usually Reply To All on the cc list to that she and all her friends can enjoy the debunking, but like I said, I couldn’t bring myself to yet again this week debunk her poor choice of Forward To All!

    Aum.

    • Sorry Dandapani! I was watching the funeral of Stan the Man and was NOT thinking…because I was crying along with the rest of the crowd. Dandapani…Dandapani…Dandapani…Okay. I think I’ve got it. By the way, how did you come up with such a different web name? You don’t have to say…just wondering. I have yet to receive Truck Art. LOL!

      • That’s my Hindu name ;) Another reference to Lord Shiva. More directly another name for Lord Shiva’s Son Murugan. Brother to Lord Ganesha. Lots of name variations.
