    Internet Cleanup Day
    Status Hoax
    Comments Different variations of this e-mail have been making the internet rounds. This warning is a hoax because there is no such thing as a "cleanup day" for the Internet. If each web site shutdown their web server there would be NO Internet to clean. Please, DO NOT circulate.

    Description Subj: Internet Cleanup Day

    THIS MESSAGE WILL AGAIN BE REPEATED IN MID FEBRUARY.
    *** Attention ***

    It's that time again!

    As many of you know, each year the Internet must be shut down for 24
    hours in order to allow us to clean it. The cleaning process, which
    eliminates dead email and inactive ftp, www and gopher sites, allows for a
    better working and faster Internet.

    This year, the cleaning process will take place from 12:01 a.m.. GMT on
    February 27 until 12:01 a.m. GMT on February 28 (the time least likely to
    interfere with ongoing work). During that 24-hour period, five powerful
    Internet search engines situated around the world will search the
    Internet and delete any data that they find.

    In order to protect your valuable data from deletion we ask that you do
    the following:

    1. Disconnect all terminals and local area networks from their
    Internet connections.

    2. Shut down all Internet servers, or disconnect them from the
    Internet.

    3. Disconnect all disks and hard drives from any connections to the
    Internet.

    4. Refrain from connecting any computer to the Internet in any
    way.

    We understand the inconvenience that this may cause some Internet
    users, and we apologize. However, we are certain that any inconveniences
    will be more than made up for by the increased speed and efficiency of the
    Internet, once it has been cleared of electronic flotsam and jetsam.

    We thank you for your cooperation.
