END CHAIN LETTER TEXT

Previous "E-mail tracking" hoaxes have promised free money or products, donations to needy causes and effortless activism. It was the logical next step for a hoaxter to apply it to a "forward or die" chain letter.

doteasy.com - free web hosting. Free hosting with no banners.
Let's get right to the point: There is no such program that can track an e-mail and tell its originator what each of its recipients does with it. It is technologically impossible. The block of gibberish represented as the "program code" is just that - gibberish. If you look closely at it, you'll see familiar patterns caused by a typist hitting random keys on the keyboard.

Another sign this is the work of a bored hoaxter is the name of the authors supposed fiancee. Ayumi Tachibana is the heroine of a series of japanese detective video games for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. She is often mentioned in lists of "sexiest video game characters" on gamer's bulletin boards and is an understandable choice for a meddlesome hoaxter to choose as a fictional lover.

While most people don't really believe the premise of this chain, they forward it anyway, not willing to gamble on a life-or-death proposition. After all, what can it hurt, right? Chain letters can hurt plenty. E-mail offers no privacy protections, and schemes like this are often used to collect e-mail addresses for spamming purposes. In addition, a threatening chain letter like the one above could actually be considered menacing or harassing in some jurisdictions, with legal ramifications. Break this chain.
