Dear Fellow E-mailer,

My resolution is:

I WILL NOT FORWARD ANY E-MAIL THAT IS A TYPE OF CHAIN LETTER.

I WILL NOT FORWARD ANY E-MAIL INDICATING GOOD OR BAD THINGS WILL HAPPEN SHOULD I FAIL TO DO CERTAIN THINGS.

I WILL NOT FORWARD ANY E-MAIL THAT MAY BE A HOAX WITHOUT CHECKING WITH AT LEAST TWO AUTHORITATIVE WEBSITE SOURCES TO BE POSITIVE IT IS NOT A HOAX.

I WILL NOT FORWARD ANY E-MAIL ABOUT A VIRUS UNLESS I HAVE CHECKED WITH AT LEAST TWO AUTHORITATIVE WEBSITE SOURCES TO VALIDATE THE VIRUS.

I WILL NOT INITIATE CHAIN LETTERS, HOAXES OR VIRUSES.

Make this your resolution! Also remember:

I WILL NOT FORWARD THIS TO ANYONE ON MY ADDRESS LIST BUT I WILL RECONSTRUCT IT SO IT WILL APPEAR AS MY RESOLUTION AND SEND IT TO MY CONTACTS.

I WILL KEEP A COPY OF THIS RESOLUTION FOR FUTURE REFERENCE

I WILL VISIT THE FOLLOWING SITES FOR INFO ON CHAIN LETTERS, HOAXES AND VIRUSES.
