Well, this assumes that the reading public would notice; still, the problem with precautions like those is they don't go nearly far enough. So I have a modest proposal of my own: Let's all disconnect from Microsoft! It's nothing but a well-known source of contagion, and frankly, the whole thing is starting to get a bit old anyway.
Maybe it's time to admit that the whole Microsoft thing has been a grand experiment, but an experiment that's failed -- like hydrogen-filled airships, or the Tacoma Narrows Bridge, or Betamax. We'll all find something else to do, and in many cases it will come as a great relief.
After all, one of Microsoft's most popular applications -- e-mail -- has become just another arena in which to feel constantly behindhand, particularly when one's in-box is already jammed with dozens of mysterious messages whose subject lines are something like "Undeliverable: Returned mail: User unknown," because they were generated by a worm or a virus and appear to have come from your account but really didn't.
