Invitation Virus

“The sky is falling.  The sky is falling.  It landed on my head!” — chicken little

If you get a warning either via email, or IM, or other saying that if you get an invitation email from anyone… even a friend.. delete it or your computer will end up as a dead duck.  (OK, it doesn’t use THOSE words.. but all the same.)

IGNORE THE MESSAGE!

The Invitation Virus is actually the warning that everyone will be emailing to each other.  These warnings waste more cumulative time than if the virus actually existed.
