    It might be funnier if it wasn't painfully true...years of intensive file downloading, and the only virus I ever got on my (until recently) completely unsecured win98 box was from my idiot sister.

    Heh. IMO most viruses DO spread primarily via clueless people. I can count the times I've gotten a virus on my win98 box here on one hand. (Not including the ones which are benignly sitting as unexecuted .exe files.)

    "Hate crime statutes are specifically designed to protect minority groups," said ACLU President Nadine Strossen. "I'm not sure the number of stupid computer users meets that criterion."
    Well, they've got a good point.....

    "My virus wasn't targeting stupid computer users specifically, just anyone using Microsoft's Outlook Express or AOL," he said. "Oh... damn."
    Stop it!!! I'm gonna pee my pants if I don't stop laughing!!!

    I infected my computer with the I-Love-You virus to see if it was as bad and as dangerous as everyone said. It wasn't...
