And some people just blindly send warnings to everyone in their
address book. So people like me who are immune to viruses (because
I'm on a Unix workstation) get annoying virus warnings (that I
already know about) from people I don't even know.
On the virus front, yesterday I got 27 copies of the hybris worm
(that's a lot lower than it's been).

mailing list started sending BadTrans to anyone who had posted,
which got complaints to the (newsgroup) moderators that they were
posting articles infected with viruses. *sigh*
