Irony is when one gets hit on the head with a helmet.
It's also when you make a chain-fail plz account, and it becomes a hub for chainmail-related jokes.
Anyway, if you or someone you know has been on the recieving end of a chain letter, a referral to the Snopes article (http://www.snopes.com/luck/chain.asp) might help, if they're not the TL;DR type. Not sure if it's possible to stop chain mail completely, but some increased awareness would certainly help.
