Ten
rules to remind us (seniors) (and everyone else) not to repost or forward
without thinking about the consequences. Remember, the internet can be a wild
place, but a little caution goes a long way when it comes to sharing
and forwarding messages. Think before you click!

“The
Grandparent Golden Rule”: Before you share, ask yourself, “Would I
shout this in a crowded library?” If the answer is no, keep it to yourself
and your cat.

“The
Scroll Stopper”: If a post makes you cringe, stop scrolling and think
twice. Your scroll button won’t file a complaint.

“Meme
Majesty”: Respect the memes. Remember, not every cat photo needs a
worldwide audience. Share sparingly.

 “Too
Many Cooks in the Inbox”: Forwarding emails? Just remember, you’re not a
chef, and this isn’t a recipe. Don’t overcook your inbox!

“You
Are Not the Weather Channel”: Sharing weather updates every hour won’t
make you a meteorologist. And your friends already know it’s raining; they have
windows too!

 “Political
Paws and Claws”: Politics and social media can be a dangerous mix. Don’t
share divisive posts unless you’re ready for a debate at the family reunion.

 “Quotable
Wisdom”: Be wary of inspirational quotes attributed to Einstein, Lincoln,
and Shakespeare. They didn’t say half the things they’re credited with.
Fact-check before you post!

 “Catfish
Patrol”: If a stranger messages 
you
claiming to be a long-lost relative or a Nigerian prince, it’s probably not
legit. Don’t share your life story or bank info.

 “Chain
Gang No More”: Break free from chain emails! Breaking the chain won’t
bring you bad luck; it’ll bring you peace of mind.

 “Remember: It’s Not
1999”: Just because it’s an email forward doesn’t mean it’s true. Trust
your instincts, not your inbox.
