Walter should not be saying this. Walter doesn't know how this virus works
... all this kind of statement accomplishes is to cast aspersions on
perfectly innocent folk.

By the way, Walter, do you know that I've received over 15 virus-laden
emails from what apparently looks like you?

I've received well over 400 from ... me!

The virus looks at the infected person's address book, picks a random person
for the "From" line, and then sends the virus to everyone in the book.
People who share similar interests will of course tend to get viruses from
each other.

Please don't spread rumours. I've got a hard enough time as it is telling
people the list isn't spreading viruses - we don't need some "scam" ruours
on top of that ...
