No matter how new I was to email or the internet, I not once forwarded one of those damned things.
Maybe I'm just a natural sceptic. But I've so often searched for proof that some really dangerous virus all my friends felt the need to warn me about, was in fact a hoax - to stop them from sending those mails - that I know how little effort it takes.
So if you're so gullible and concerned about my safety why can't you be bothered to check if there is any reason to be afraid?
What's more, if you're a doctor could you please stop and *think* for two seconds before you forward the HIV-Needle warning?
