Here's another spin on the Good Times virus:
It may not be a killer virus, but it certainly has the status of a nuisance.
It causes superfluous messages to clutter the in-boxes of thousands of email
It accomplishes this by creating a bug in the *human* component of the
system. It uses users to propagate itself.
The warning message *is* the virus. You get the warning and you send it out
to everyone on your mail list. And everyone wastes a lot of time.
