Well, the military and the universities does not pay anymore, so they 
need others who pay for (even junk mails). There are payer on 
compuserve.COM, aol.COM, mci.COM, and of course trace.COM.tw does pay 
for it too.

How much do YOU pay?????

And back to the subject, WHO has the time to write a VIRUS?? Do you 
think a business man will do? or a university professor, or ... ?

I guess we think now on the same group of people who possible have 
time to do that.

*I* have lost a lot of money with a virus. It sit in the Logon.exe of 
my network. It stopped 10 employees (developing engineers) for 3 
months working. Be sure, if I find someone who wrote/published a virus
I would do EVERYTHING (leagal) action to get him out of the society.

A virus is funny, but when families in the background lose their job 
than the funny time is over. Think about this also once.
