Beware....I have notified Admins about a new member who is sending viruses and foul language emails to anyone who disagrees with him. At least one recipient  had her PC crash in opening his email, which contained foul personally offensive language. I sure hope he gets removed from this board.

Thanks for letting us know.  I'm sorry this individual hasn't learned the benefits of a clean, healthy debate.  I will say a prayer for awareness.

I have received a couple of e-mails recently supposedly from "Nancy Lee" but the subject matter did not seem to fit and I didn't open them. Obviously it was the right thing to do. I'm really sorry this is happening. Hope someone know who is doing this.

The only way to send a virus is as an attachment or a clickable link (unless your email client is from Microsoft and is very badly configured). They can come from people who are angry, but they can just as easily come from people you know (if they're infected).

Don't click email links. From anyone. It's really not any more complex than that.
