When it comes to obnoxious email spam, I think chain letters are right up there with penis enhancement ads, sprouting like digital dandelions in our virtual mailbox. I’ve pointed out to 10-year-old Max, who now has his own email account, that if chain letters held any validity, they would be a crappy thing to send to your friends. “Basically you’re telling them to do something under the threat of bad fortune or death,” I said. He agrees that email chains suck. Nevertheless I enjoyed a little voyeurism the other day when Max’s friend included me in a chain letter chain. I got cc’d on everything.
