Typical chain mail

Chain mail is the lifebloods of the internet. Without it, we wouldn't have such wonderful things as Facebook fan pages, YouTube comments, Nexopia, or Hotmail.

History

The earliest known record of chain mail dates back to the Middle Ages, on a scroll of parchment reading "Forsooth, brave king, thou must tire of cleaning the blood of thine enemies off thy castle floor each day! If thou wouldst employ the most noble services of Ye Olde Billy Mays, thou mayest receive a Cloth of Divine Absorption +3 by paying a modest twelve shillings, only thrice, afore the annum's end! If thou agrees within a fortnight, thou will receive a second cloth for no additional coin!"

In modern times, most chain mail is created by trolls in the form of email:
