Where the EFF? This case has transformed from moronic/hilarious to
outrageous. There ought to be an outcry. Imagine the time, effort, money,
pain, and slander which results from just one incident of Windows malware.
Some of the insults will not be reversible. As I told HPT the other day,
SPAM (AKA Windows zombie spewage) is cost and burden that everybody shares.
I identified an E-mail that's over a month old. It was from Google
