I received an email today from a friend of mine about “Bill 602P.” This is the email currently circulating about the USPS charging 5 cents per email.
For those of you who didn’t already know, this is a hoax. Below are some links you may find useful to prove this point beyond rebuttal, IMHO.
As you can clearly see by clicking on the links (I refuse to copy the articles into this message) this is a complete and utter hoax.
Anyone else receive this type of email?
another pointless response from me today. Why do I do it? I just don’t fucking know.
I believe it’s a cry for help, oldscratch.
As to the OP, my friends know me better than to send me those things anymore.

Yeah, I generally prefer removing the spleen of whoever sends me one of those even after being warned
Of course, my ex-GF’s mother still forwards these things to me. I don’t understand it; it’s been over a year now, and she knew we broke up right away. And she never liked me anyway. Wait a minute, I * do * understand it.
Oh, yeah. I got this email from an uncle who believes every UL that crosses his email address.
I sent the idiot links to to the US Senate and House and told him to find the congressman sponsoring the bill and he STILL wouldn’t believe it was a hoax.
There’s another version of this floating around that says it’s a Canadian bill.
