*if you don't mind being berated by half of them for spamming chain mail via notecards in SL. (=_=)

Yes, I'm starting to see these. The chain mail pandemic has gone from snail mail, to fax machines, to Email, to..... Yes.... SL!!!! DX

I'm getting notecards here and there from people with the same old - same old. [Insert sweet and sappy message here]... and send this out to 4, 7, 42 or your friends. (^_^)

I accept, the messages are sweet and inspirational, as they've always been. I'm sure the early chain letters keep the post office in business for quite a while. When they went to Email things got a bit too easy and the inherit logarithmic growth of a single message was practically enough to choke a server. Go to any Email admin and ask, "Hey, did you get that letter about the angels?" and run, run for your life. (^_^)

Now, they're in SL... In notecard form, no less. Hereby adding undue stress to the already overstressed asset cluster. They have the same potential for logarithmic growth, if not moreso due to the drag and drop ease that comes with inventory offers. Add to that, they contain a bit of emotional blackmail. (=_=)

Send this to every friend that you have on-line,
including the person who sent it to you.

0 Replies - you may need to work on your 'people skills'
2 Replies - you are nice but probably need to be more outgoing
4 Replies - you have picked your friends well!
6 Replies - you are downright popular
8 Replies or More - you are totally awesome
(and that's probably why you're on MY list)

Sorry... I'm not going to manage my "people skills" on the handling of a bulk message notecard. (=_=)

0 ARs - friends don't let friends send spamcards
2 ARs - only did it once, never do it again
4 ARs - yes, but they are spread out over three alts
6 ARs - I don't mind the suspensions, they give me more "WoW" time
8 ARs or More - Probably not sending notecards at all, actually :o)
