The act of forwarding on any email you get without checking the accuracy of the [dis]information you are spreading.
Don't you just love getting emails from everyone and their sister about things proclaiming to be true, but turn out to be a hoax. I have received the following email many times, each time the details are subtlely different:
- sometimes a nightclub or pub is named, sometimes not
- generally 5 men are involved, sometimes less
- the final pleas change wording each time
Here is the email:
A woman, at Rain nightclub (Halifax) last Saturday night Sept.10/05) was taken by 5 men, who according to hospital and police reports, gang raped her before dumping her. Unable to remember the events of the evening, tests later confirmed the repeat rapes and along with traces of Rohypnol in her blood, was Progesterex, which is essentially a small sterilization pill.
The drug is now being used by rapists at parties to rape AND sterilize their victims. Progesterex is available to vets to sterilize large animals.
Rumour has it that Progesterex is being used together with Rohypnol, the date rape drug.
As with Rohypnol, all they have to do is drop into the girl's drink. The girl can't remember a thing the next morning, of all that had taken place the night before.
Progesterex, which dissolves in drinks just as easily,is such that the victim doesn't conceive from the rape and the rapist needn't worry about having a paternity test identifying him months later.
The drug's effects ARE NOT TEMPORARY......
They are P*E*R*M*A*N*E*N*T
Progesterex was designed to sterilize horses. Any female who takes it WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO CONCEIVE.
The weasels can get this drug from anyone who is in the vet school or any university. It's that easy, and Progesterex is about to break out big everywhere. Believe it or not, there are even sites on the Internet telling people how to use it.
Please COPY (NOT FORWARD) this to everyone you know, especially girls.
Be careful when you're out and don't leave your drink unattended.
Please make the effort to PASS this on to all your know.
Guys, please inform all your female friends and relatives.
Don't you just love the emphasis on the permanence? It makes it all the more important, doesn't it?
Here are some sites documenting the hoax:
