Factcheck before you Forward

Avoid friends questioning your IQ.
Don’t be lazy.
Factcheck emails before you forward them.

There are 3 good sites for this purpose, that I am aware of.

Non-partisan Politifact has a page regarding anonymous emails here:
http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/personalities/chain-email/

http://www.snopes.com/

Snopes also tries to bust the occasional false rumor nut.

And www.factcheck.org brings to light political nonsense from both sides.
