Friendster is Overcrowded (?)

Got this obvious piece of SPAM from my friendster account:

> ( Manager of Friendster )
> Friendster SYSTEM is getting too crowded!!
> We need you to forward this to at least 20 people. I know this seems like a large number, but we NEED to find out who is using their account. if you do not send this to at least 10 Friendster members, we will delete your account.
> WARNING! We want to find out which users are actually using their account. IF YOU DO NOT PASS this letter to anyone we will delete your account. Sorry for inconvinience.

Well, as far as I can tell, Friendster is far from being overcrowded (MySpace users are far more numerous) and I can't even begin to think how "intelligent" this "manager of friendster" for deleting an account by *not* sending a message to 20 other users.

Well, the bottomline of this post is -- SIMPLY IGNORE THAT OBVIOUS SPAM and please, if you're not sure about the veracity of a message you get, don't forward them...
