If one actually goes to the snopes website and types in "life is beautiful" it comes up as a HOAX hmm imagine that, funny what happens when one actually bothers to look before passing on these BS e-mails: http://www.snopes.com/computer/virus/life.asp
I'm sure the OP meant well. She was being thoughtful to pass on a possibly important email. I never choose to pass them on when I get them , and I am never one to go to snopes to cross reference everything I get either, lol.
I figure that makes me worse that I dont even try to send along the info hoax or not, lol.
LOL I have a mac I dont really care about viruses, but some people really take those seriously, I tell the people who forward those chain letter so me too. I send it back with the snopes thing saying its a hoax, LOL.
