I would rather that people *verified* their information before passing
it on. Passing on false warnings contributes to the problem of people
not paying attention to real ones.
It's not that hard to verify a story now-a-days, what with the Web being
so handy to use. All it takes is a little searching among either the
search engines or the wire services to find out if someone died of snake
bite at a Burger King, or had their Kidneys removed in a bathtub in a
hotel, or want to break the world's record for greeting cards, or if the
cancer foundation is magically donating $0.03 for every e-mail address
you forward this too.
If the story doesn't contain verifiable details and a solid source,
don't pass it on. If it does, check out those details and the source
before passing it on. That's my opinion.
