No I am not kidding, right?

There is no need to go off the deep-end about it.

I don't care how old it is, because someone not aware of the solution
and there are a lot out there will unknowingly click away.

This is old too, but does that mean that it's not a valid point and
something someone shouldn be aware of?

I didn't "go off the deep-end" about it. I simply was pointing out that this
is a very old hoax and you should take the time to research things before
you clog up the Intertubes with quotes from Chicken Little.
