Subject:Internet Hoaxes From:Christy Dawn Langley <GRLANGLE -at- ECUVM -dot- CIS -dot- ECU -dot- EDU> Date:Mon, 6 Nov 1995 21:25:22 EST
Internet hoaxes have and will always exist. Someone with good intentions
will always get suckered by a hoax. I have fallen prey to them myself on
more than one occassion. Now I make it a practice to avoid all the virus
or "send postcards to Craig" postings. I stay safe that way.
For all those upset over the Good Times hoax, I say take two aspirin and
wait for the next one. There's not much anyone can do. Don't let such
tedious things throw you off your balance.
