Break the chain!
I have to agree, down with chain letters.
Sending them and, worse, believing them, always struck me as a very newbie computer user thing to do. The surprise is when non-newbies perpetuate them too.
A couple of prime snippets from the list:
I no longer eat prepackaged foods because the estrogens they contain will turn me gay.
I no longer eat KFC because their chickens are actually horrible mutant freaks with no eyes or feathers.
