Hii, sereeemm! Tapi koq judul artikelnya aneh sih, tanda serunya cuman 1, lah tanda tanyanya sampe 3. Tentu ada alasannya dong!

Message di atas udah sering kulihat mulai dari pertama kali aku masuk fs, sampe skrg! Tapi, sebenarnya message di atas itu bener gak sih? Nah, kalo dilihat, msg di atas tuh termasuk kategori chain letter. Aku udah sering nrima chain letter, dan semuanya yg bernada ancaman GAK pernah aku sebarkan, termasuk message di atas ini.

Lalu apakah account fs-ku dihapus? SAMA SEKALI TIDAK! Mungkin ada yg bakal ngomong, "Loh koq bisa yakin sih? Siapa tau suatu hari account-mu bener2 ditutup, mampus loe!!!". Nah, kalo org yg ngomong kalimat itu tadi lagi online, kusuruh dia jalankan beberapa tahap ini:

  1. Klik link "help" yang ada di bagian bawah pada setiap halaman friendster.
  2. Cari help yg berjudul "Is it true that Friendster is running out of space and needs me to forward the message so my account won't be deleted?"
  3. Baca tuh bolak balik sampe ngerti!

Ato bisa juga baca isi help itu di bawah ini (di-copy paste langsung dari friendster):

I received a message or saw a bulletin post about Friendster running out of space and needing me to pass the message along to keep my account from being deleted. Is this true?

It is a hoax. The Bulletin Board post you received isn't true, and it is not from Friendster (there is also no Allen Smith, Joseph Tubeo, or Ying Stephen as refered to either), so there is not need to re-post it or forward it to any of your friends. Friendster is not deleting any of its users' accounts. For future reference please note that Friendster will never communicate with you via your Bulletin Board, only through your personal e-mail address on your account or through the Friendster Alerts that appear on your homepage when you login to your account.

Nah, pihak friendster jelas2 telah memberitahu tentang hal ini. Jadi gimana, masih ada yang mau forward chain letter di atas?
