Attention chain letter e-mail fans Ok, I don't know any of you people, but don't believe this bull!!!! First of all, Microsoft and AOL are not the same company you idiot! In fact AOL owns the biggest competitor of Internet Explorer. It's called Netscape Navigator. Second, for those of you that don't understand TCP/IP (that's how e-mail works) You can not track where an e-mail is forwarded too. It just can't be done. Third, Why would a company like make payments like that, just for people to forward a message that doesn't even have advertisement in it. Now some simple rules of e-mail ettiquete. 1) Don't forward stuff that you haven't checked out to be true. Just because it says true in the message does not make it so. 2) Don't forward anything to people you don't know. (sounds like I'm breaking my rule here, but I'm not forwarding, I'm replying to the list that this was sent to.) 3) If it sounds too good, or too bad to be true, it's probably a lie! For those that still don't get it. Companies do not ever give you anything for forwarding e-mail. (including free gift certificates, product, or cash) You can not save that little girls life by forwarding e-mail Proctor and Gamble is not Satan That Atheist lady is NOT trying to stop prayer on radio. (they can't even locate her, check with the FCC) The Guiness book of world records can not tell how many times and e-mail went "around the world" Most virus alerts are also bogus. You can verify them at www.symantec.com. You will not have bad luck for not forwarding an e-mail. Anything else that sounds stupid or fake, probably is. David Bradford PS this is the polite version of my answer to chain letters
I am forwarding this because the person who sent it to me is a good friend and does not send me junk. Micorsoft and AOL are now the largest internet company and in an effort to make sure that internet explorer remains the most widely used program, Microsoft and AOL are running an e-mail beta test. When you forward this e-mail to friends, Microsoft can and will track it (if you are a Microsoft Windows user) for a two week time period. For every person that you forward this e-mail to, Microsoft will pay you $5.00, for every person that you sent it to that forwards it on, Microsoft will pay you $3.00 and for every third person that receives it, you will be paid $1.00. Within two weeks, Microsoft will contact you for your address and then send you a check. I thought this was a scam myself, but two weeks after receiving this e-mail and forwarding it on, Microsoft contacted me for my e-mail and within days, I received a check for $800.00.
