    Warning: Amish Virus

    In a recently received email:

    By opening this email, you have activated the Amish Virus.

    But since the Amish do not have computers, you are on the honor system. Please delete all your files now.

    Thank you.

    Glad to see I'm not the only one to get hit by the Amish virus. Took me 3 weeks to rebuild all my files.

    It probably took them too long to get there, via buggy.
