A letter, often containing
a story, that promises something good
if sent to x people (or in the case of MySpace
, reposted) in y minutes, and often comes with
a consequence if not reposted.
These are very popular on MySpace, and in some cases
threaten account deletion if not reposted. They are very annoying and clutter up the bulletins.
are NOT TRUE. Trust me; I've ignored various chain letters with
the lines of "repost or you will
die" and I'm still alive and well. If I do die, it will have
nothing to do with
a chain letter.
<Random person A> I got one of those chain letters. If I don't repost this
by midnight tonight then I apparantly will be killed off by a ghost. What do I do?
<Random person B> Ignore it. Whoever made that
is trying to clutter up e-mail
