ORKUT: Some Misconception, Some Facts!

Dear friends,

I would just like to inform u people about some common misconceptions…

Misconception #1: ORKUT IS DELETING PROFILES

  • Orkut is NOT deleting profiles!
  • Orkut is run by google which is having a 300% growth in terms of revenue for this fiscal year!
  • They can handle any abysmal requirement of processing power or space!
  • They are NOT experiencing any information processing or storage problems as yet!

Misconception #2: YOU CAN GET PAID BY FORWARDING AN E-MAIL

  • Until Today, Sunday, 21st Sept 2006, there is no way to keep track of where a mail gets forwarded!
  • Microsoft will not know if I send a mail from google server to my friend (EVEN IF IT IS A FORWARDED MAIL) unless you explicitly execute some code or click some link!
  • However may I wish, I have no means to know whether my friend is forwarding the mail I sent to him or not. Nor does Microsoft, Google or any other corp. or inc.

Misconception #3: WOMAN TAKING A ROHYPNOL PILL WILL NEVER CONCEIVE

  • Are all men and women undergoing a surgery for family planning DUMB?
  • Woman cannot be made incapable of conceiving by dropping a pill in her drink.
  • Rohypnol is used as a sedative and pre-anesthetic.
  • It is called “Rape Date Drug” because it is extremely potent, especially with alcohol.
  • It initially makes a person dizzy and disoriented and with time makes it difficult to speak or move before the person passes out.
  • Due to this effect, this drug is used by rapists to incapacitate their victims.
  • Such victims have no memories of what happened WHILE UNDER the drug’s influence. (They can perfectly remember what they were doing before getting sedated)
  • It is illegal (in the U.S but not in Europe and Canada)

No comments about emotional messages appealing a person to forward a mail because it will either…

  • suddenly make his love of life realize that she should call him/she should meet him/She should fall in love with him!
  • or increase life expectancy of himself or his father/mother/brother/sister/any other relatives!
  • or make something “GOOD”(?) happen in his life!
  • or earn him an unexpected fortune!
  • or because some poor/crippled/terminally infected/just infected/dying person will get money for every mail you forward!(I do not mean to disrespect the intentions but it is pointless as your forwards cannot be tracked)
  • or just because it is part of a world record attempt!
  • or because this e-mail is part of “chain” that many people have kept or going for no particular reason so you should also do the same!
AND THAT STUPID CRUSH THING DOES NOT POP UP IF YOU FORWARD THAT LOONEY MAIL……..

  • the only way of knowing your crush is if both the people add each other to their own crush list.
  • there is NO WAY of knowing anyone else’s crush’s or your own, if none of the above happens.

  1. Okay. I know you’re trying to get your point out and I agree with you when you say there’s too much rubbish sent around these days, but there are a few issues with what you’ve written.

    It is possible to track email (it’s not very easy to do, but there are ways of doing it that exploit bugs in email clients/web clients/browsers etc).

    Here’s a resource you could check out that at least tracks one mail:
