Email Etiquette: Think Before you Forward

“A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.”
– Sir Winston Churchill (1874-1965)

This statement is especially true in the email/internet age. I’ve been using the internet since the mid-90’s. I cannot count the number of email forwards that I have received that were simply NOT TRUE.

My point is this: RESEARCH BEFORE YOU FORWARD EMAILS. One excellent website is SNOPES.COM. It only takes a minute to check something out and see if there is really something to the email.


  1. true kuya true… we almost never reveal the truth and let the lie just die away instead of speaking the truth

  2. Ha ha! I love Snopes. I found a comic the other day about them which I thought was hilarious: xkcd “Snopes” comic. I got here via, btw.
