Hm. Not really... it's more a social problem. Too many people react to Spam by 
buying the fscking product. 

Of course Mail Virii are a different problem, which is being called Microsoft 
Outbreak or similar...
By the way, why the hell do some stupid admins filter virii out of mails and 
_send_ the rest of that Virus Distribution Mail? Those are nearly the only 
mails dropping through my SpamAssassin / ClamAV combination and going into my 
inbox :((

PS: Now it's 600 MB of that one damned virus in 14 days, that's really really 
a dimension I've never seen before in my personal mail account. Without 
filters, I'd have gone mad clicking through M$ update fakes on my linux box. 
Could it just be the programmer of that virus did the whole thing to annoy us 
Linux users? (Just to make this thing seem on-topic for this list)
Or is that thing on the run like no virus has ever been before?

I wish it would be like ICQ... my years old ICQ number has seven digits and as 
it seems all ICQ SPAM senders start sending at higher numbers :)
