Sorry to waste more bandwidth and contribute to the overall "off-topic"
ratio but:

While I agree, I think it is a thin line. Had I not received a virus warning
earlier yesterday morning, I would not have recognized the virus when it
appeared on this list. I do not make a habit of opening unrequested and
unknown attachments, so I would probably have been safe anyway.
Nevertheless, it was good to know.
