Break the Chain Mother Must I?

Created 8/8/2002 (8/8/2002) This upbeat counter to the plague of adult entertainment on the Web is understandably popular, but is it worth your time? Probably not.

SAMPLE CHAIN LETTER TEXT

IT'S WORKING !!

Mother Teresa v. Porn Stars

"Together let us build a chain of love around the world."

Will You Try This With Me?
Let's beat the porn industry at its own game!

Have you seen the news stories about the porn stars who are fighting over which one of them is the most seen woman on the Internet?
It's sickening! And I'm tired of it!

Let's end that disgusting argument once and for all by making Mother Teresa's picture the most viewed picture on the Internet -- instead of some porn star's! We can make that happen if we all pass this page on to everyone we know.

This page, along with Mother Teresa's picture, has already been sent to NOW 6,000,000 people.

Will you pass it on to just 3 of your friends?

Click here to pass this page on to As Many people you Can and make Mother Teresa's picture -- not some porn star's -- the most viewed picture on the Internet!

SENDING THIS PAGE TO ONE PERSON CONTINUES THE CAUSE!

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO IS MAKING THIS A REALITY.

END CHAIN LETTER TEXT

This chain letter represents a disturbing new trend. Mailbits.com, one of the Internet's premier e-mail newsletter provider, is well known for it's joke-of-the-day and other humorous or inspirational newsletters that get forwarded with gusto. Unfortunately, they've recently begun dabbling in different types of troublesome chain letters like missing child chains and pointless drivel like the one above.

Several adult entertainers have claimed to be the "most downloaded," "most visited" or "most viewed" on the Web. Of course, none of those claims are provable, since nobody is actually monitoring every file sent and received. Many search engines have crowned their "most"s based on search term frequency and other factors, but there is no definitive list.

It's getting harder to go anywhere on the web without running into pornography or having it run into you. But does this chain letter really accomplish anything? Will it deter the porn industry or its consumers? Highly unlikely. What it will do, however, is drive traffic to Mailbits.com's web site where they serve advertising, collect e-mail addresses and make you and your friends opt out of "special offers" to avoid getting more spam.

Many of us are genuinely frustrated by the proliferation pornography on the Internet - almost as frustrated as we are by pointless junk e-mails. Break this Chain.
