Hi Emails

Looking at my inbox today I'm getting more and more convinced that it would be a good idea to make it obligatory for people to get an Information Highway Driving License before they are allowed to connect to the internet. Exuse me, but how ignorant must one person be in these times to open an email attachment that you receive from some complete stranger? I didn't count them, but I guess that only this morning I received something like 150 'Hi' emails - Hello! Anybody home? Ever heard of worms, virii, trojans? No? Then switch off your computer NOW! Do not turn the internet into a garbage can just because you are too stupid to use it.

I'm getting about 3-4 an hour since last night. Ridiculous that something you have to open up, unzip, and run an .exe would be spreading so fast.

I've been getting hundreds of them, since yesterday. What a pain. Why do people keep opening these things?
