I allready forwarded it to you I can't upload it to you because I can't Download it yahoo prevents it. and Secondly I suggest u remove your E-mail from the previous post. Finally it was not a threat it was merely a precaution I see it this way u need 2 HD's install OS on one repeats for the other and keep all data on your secondary drive leaving the first one for booting only. Can't get much saver than that.

Saddly, you're e-mail is filtered out as junk mail, it seems. No surprise since you're sending me a virus. Anyway, as I said, I won't be running the virus. I can't (running Linux) so I don't have to worry about setting a virus off.

By the way, if you can't even downlaod the virus from Yahoo, why are you so upset about getting it in the first place?

It's the principle, like I stated here before this the only place where my e-mail is common knowledge, and if it's someone I've pissed off I'd like to know who my enimes are.

First of all, people's e-mail addresses (whether publicly posted or not) can
be found a number of ways. Perhaps you're in the Yahoo Address Book? Perhaps the virus just sends itself to random e-mail addresses? Perhaps
someone did directly target you? But chances are you're just being paranoid.
So it doens't matter where your e-mail address is "common knowledge". If it's anywhere on the 'net, it is common knowledge.

Next, since you make wild accusations, act so damn paranoid and write
childish posts, chances are you have a number of enemies. Espeically if
you treat others (besides from this board) this way.

99% of net users will receive e-mail viruses at some point or another. Ususally these e-mails seem to be from people they know. That's part
of the beauty of them, they seem to come from trusted sources.
My last suggestion is to realize that you're not special, you're probably
not being targeted and, chances are, no one is going to come forward to
confess anyway.

I wonder whether you just skip the long notes. I've explained all of this earlier in this thread.

You know, it's funny that you say this is the only place that your email is "common knowlege", but Google says otherwise.

Kinda ironic, no?

What sage is saying is that since google found it, that means that spam harvest-bots have found it.  Any time that you post your own email, change it so that it doesn't look like an email.
example:

user kkkwwweq domain www net  (if you want to email me, change kkkwwweq into an "at" symbol and www into a dot).

And any time a forum, mailing list, company or a friend posts your email in plain view, complain complain complain until they change it.

No, I'm not that bored. How bored is "that bored" anyhow?

How long did it take you to dig that up?
I copied your email address to the clipboard, hit start+r, typed in "google ", then hit ctrl+v, edited out "mailto:", and pressed enter. Thanks to a perl script I wrote, this brought up that very Google page I linked earlier. So about 30 seconds, maybe a minute at maximum.

Unfortunately, I am not psychic, and as the meaning of your words is very vague, I don't really know what you mean.

Culture20 was already nice enough to state what my point was. So stop throwing out accusations at people trying to help you. It's very immature.
