I received this email about “the FCC rumor” on a day when I was already on edge. It contained a long list of folks who “signed” the bottom and forwarded. My response (below) was a bit pointed, but I wanted to put it here as a warning to those who would consider forwarding me such things:
Please check the Focus on the Family site at http://www.citizenlink.org/CLFeatures/A000000320.cfm
or the FCC site at http://www.fcc.gov/mb/enf/forms/rm-2493.html

PS: Yes, I had previously sent the forwarder to snopes.com, so it’s not like they weren’t warned.
