I got an e-mail (4 times from 4 speperate people) about a virus “Life is Beautiful.pps” and it said to “E-mail to everyone I know!” This made it suspect, so I spent 30 seconds with google and found a refutation from McAfee, proving it was a hoax. I hit reply to all, pasted the link in there, and wrote “I have getten this 4 times, and am sick of it. Here’s the link. It’s a hoax.” Then I sent it.
It sent it to about 30 people. Now I have gotten 8 E-mails telling me how rude I was to do that, and that I made the person that sent it to everyone in the first place feel stupid, and how I have really done it this time, and how I was mean, and was just out to prove someone wrong.
So, I was wondering, do you think that I overstepped my bounds? Should I have done it? Was I right to do my part in the fight against ignorance, at the expense of the friend who sent it to me in the first place? Help me out dopers… I feel guilty.
