It has zero long term effects, other than making you look silly on the net,
since it is, from all appearances, a hoax, not a disease. The web of
carriers and studiers doesn't exist except on the hoaxer's web site.
The supposed scientific name of the "disease" is "mollusca" which is
a *phylum* -- no biologist would create a disease's scientific name using an
existing phylum or other major taxonomic classification. It's like
calling a disease "mammal."
