PsyLord: Apparently I'm not the only one that has a crazy tin foil hat wearing uncle. He forwards this crap to my folks and then I get sent this shiat from them. I've told them that most of the crap being sent by him is utter crap and easily debunked with a quick google search, but alas, my folks are old.
AverageAmericanGuy: There was a time I used to respond to these emails by reprimanding the sender and clarifying for everyone on the CC list that these emails were either hoaxes, spam, or chain letters that ought to be deleted as soon as they were delivered to your inbox and not forwarded to everyone in your address book.
BronyMedic: The problem is that we live in America, and because of this, pundits on the right like to glorify the unintellectual, slack-jawed yokels who actually believe the email with 50 FW: headers infront of the subject that came from Grandma Powatee in Bucksnort, Tennessee as "Educated Voters" and promote the idea that they should vote based on what they read in a chain email, rather than doing research on the actual purported event.
