One thing has me really concerned:

>>Crunchyroll is recently becoming very overpopulated. There have been many members complaining that Crunchyroll is becoming very slow. Records show that the reason is that there are many active Crunchyroll members and, on the other side, many new Crunchyroll members.
>>
>>We will be sending this message around to see if members are active or not. If you are active please send to at least 15 other users using Copy+ Paste to show that you are still active. *Those who do not send this message within 2 weeks will be deleted without hesitation to create more space.*
>>
>>Send this message to all your friends and to show me that your still active and you will not be deleted.
>>
>>Shinji
>>

I received this message from a user. It's obviously some kind of chain letter. I do have some pretty straight forward questions!
1. Should I forward it, or not?
2. Will my account actually be deleted, or not?
3. This person is someone I don't really know. Should I shout out their user name, or not?
4. Is this official, or not?

Actually, I'd prefer it if a forum mod or other representative of CRUNCHYROLL could OFFICIALLY say that it is unofficial. As I'm taking this just as seriously as if SHINJI sent it out. If your not concerned about losing your account and personal information, that's fine.

BUT I AM CONCERNED! The thread you included is in the general discussion section and not the support section. I'm asking for support on the topic, not general discussion.

I would like someone that is a REPRESENTATIVE of crunchyroll to answer my questions, one by one. My questons are straight forward.

1. Should I forward it, or not?
2. Will my account actually be deleted, or not?
3. This person is someone I don't really know. Should I shout out their user name, or not?
4. Is this official, or not?

Just ignore or delete the messages.

Only the ones who are borderline brain dead would have given that chain letter any consideration what-so-ever. DERP!
