This morning I checked my gmail inbox and I had a couple emails from a very special one (<3) and a couple chain mails. Usually I delete them immediately, but today I opened this one mail with the most exclamation points on its title than the others. The email was about Genpents. I have never heard about them and it is supposed to be some sort of humanoid pets made of skins, bones, tissues, they breathe but the are drugged so as to be low maintained, come out in 7 different personalities and are available even in super markets.There was also a photo of a little happy child holding one packaged Genpent. The email sender was urging me and the other 23.876 receivers of this text to spread the word the outrageous news. Everyone has to know.
There are many things that bother me in chain mails because let’s face it, they are annoying and stupid. They make a huge fuss in a very dramatic tone of things that actually don’t exist but even if some of these emails are about serious issues I don’t know how the “let everyone know” attitude will solve the problem. Since when have chit chat, gossip and sending an email are able to make us feel that we took action against something that we think it’s not ethical right, it’s a problem, it’s a fraud or it’s dangerous.
