People have got to be getting stupider, which is the only explanation I can come up with for the sharp increase of virus-laden e-mails in my in-boxes today. What amazes me is that most of these e-mails are from people I don’t know, but since these viruses suck out addresses from people e-mail address files and web page caches, my reach on the Web is apparently mighty. Still, I don’t know if I cotton to be read by morons who don’t know enough not to spooge a virus all over their computer. You can tell I’m irritated, can’t you.
However, I am pleased to note that no one I know has sent me any viruses, even those who I know had been infected with viruses last week (they weren’t morons, but somone on their network was). So score one for People I Know.
