This isn't quite inboxer - but someone posted it on my Anatomy and Physiology 2 message board. How do I politely tell her to go to snopes.com?

I posted this in lecture class too. My daughter
e-mailed this to me today and I thought everyone should
be aware of the new wave of personal attacks taking
place. Send this along to others you know. Sometimes
just a reminder to be more aware of your surroundings
can save someone from danger. Wendy

This happened in North Carolina - be careful.
