can if u do not pass this scrap to anyone then we will delete your account

Have a great time on orkut!

I could be wrong, but I don't see the point in Orkut Buyukkokten deleting people who do not post this message as it would be the fastest way for Google to join the dark side of the force. Not to mention the fact that Google's grammar is usually semi decent, as "upto" isn't a word last I checked.
Although I find this hoax to be cute, I do not enjoy "socially engineered spam" populating throughout the Orkut universe. Hopefully the Orkut team (or Orkut himself) can clear this up as some people are taking this rumor seriously. Ghetto, isn't?
