Well.. well.. first thing in the afternoon and this message appears bang ! in my “Orkut messages” folder.

A bit of analysis:

Cu after 1month 6:08 pm(2 minutes ago)

How long are these people going to say 1 month ? Ive been getting 1 month messages for the past 2 years. Besided.. it’s

going to be closed 2 minutes ago ? CRAP !

57 names left ? How did they calculate that ? A username can be pretty long, say 32 chars and atleast 8 chars,

and there are 26 +26 alphabets, 10 digits, 30 special characters. That makes the total number of usernames a seriously

humongous number – in billions, if not trillions. Besides, this is anyways too approximate a calculcation. Nothing on

earth, except a supercomputer can calculate this value.

And were they stupid enough to let bots capture many names in the first place ? No way Google is that stupid !

KEEP YOUR ACCOUNT ,SEND THIS MESSAGE TO EVERYONE ON YOUR LIST. THIS IS
NOT A JOKE, YOU’LL BE SORRY IF YOU DONT SEND IT.

OH ! that means Google would read everyone’s email to check out who has sent and not sent it. Its a violation of

piracy laws in the US to read email for such purposes. Even reading emails for displaying relevant ads turned out to

become a big case over there..

WHOEVER DOESNT SEND THIS MESSAGE, YOUR ACCOUNT WILL
BE DEACTIVATED AND IT WILL COST YOU $ 10.00 A MONTH TO USE IT

#&@#$&##$^ Yes Yes.. of course ! Why not ??? It would be deactivated and would cost me $10.. yeah !

World of Warcraft is way cheaper..

And really, really brilliant. They offer a scope for retrieving your account, which means they are storing it on their

hard disks, wasting money.. So.. they are still losing storage capacity

and that username is still locked up (only 57 names left), meaning the purpose of the mail is not resolved.

BTW, Im at the DCF Lab and I convinced 58 of my IITM frends to join orkut, and the 58th person wasnt rejected !
So.. there goes the orkut deletion crap ! Dear friends.. dont trust it !
