blt BS: Chain Letters (51* d) RE: BS: Chain Letters 14 Jan 01

Another variant on this theme is the email petition, usually describing some heart wrenching disaster, always aiming at one's political sensibilities, and more often than not, bogus or at least highly suspect.

It's particularly frustrating because I used to be a big petition supporter, but over the last few years, petitioners began to be paid by the signature (if they're actually gathering signatures on paper), not by their political values or committment, and then petitions started showing up on email.

As with chain letters, the only thing to do is delete them unforwarded. If it's a cause I feel drawn to, I'll do the research and write a real letter instead, which still carries more weight than email.
