People with E-Mail Viruses

In this day and age, I find it incomprehensible that people do not have virus checkers on their computers. Even more incomprehensible is the fact that people do and are possibly too cheap to ugrade their automatic subscriptions. The end result is that these people could have infected machines, not even know it, and potentially contribute to infecting their entire address book. For me it's become more than an annoyance. Imagine trying to concentrate, typing a series of monthly reports (or some other involved thing), only to be interrupted every five minutes by a series of annoying virus pop-up warnings. Folks, it's way past getting old. So for those people who prefer to be embarrassed into finally getting a virus checker (or better yet - take me out of your address book, please), the following will contain a running list of the networks and e-mail servers that I've been receiving 100 Beagle, Netsky and MyDoom emails per day:

Since the majority of these virus emails have forged From: addresses there is no way for sure to know who these are coming from. Please also note that the IPs listed are the e-mail servers from which these virii are originating from - not necessarily the IP address of the infected user. Hopefully this list won't get longer than it already is.

When I stop getting viruses from these e-mail servers I will take them off the list.
Come on guys... clean it up already!
