I hate to prolong this thread, but this particular chain mail is *not*
prosecutable, I believe.  It wasn't an MMF, it was just an avoid-bad-
luck message, and actually a pretty amusing one.  Did anyone else
actually read it?

That's very _South Park_.

Yeah - being amused by it doesn't mean I was glad to receive it.

In general, yes, but I've never seen this one before.  I don't know
what Davidofvf's deal is, but that message was very bizarre.
