Speaking as the proud owner of a Mac, it didn't bother me one bit receiving
the information on a virus that affects other systems. I learned a lot.
Someday there may be a "bug" out there that will affect my system, and I
would like to hear about that as soon as possible. Anyway, if it didn't
interest me, I'd do what I always do; hit the delete key. That takes a
nanosecond of my time. No bother.
Just my 2 bits
