My older brother sends me emails to check out and make sure it is safe, 
then I tell him if it is OK to open.  This is for attachments tho.  He 
won't open a attachment even if from someone he knows.  I explained 
those are the most dangerous ones to open. 

A lot of Linux only users do forget that viruses have to spread to be 
any good.  Linux may not catch the bug it is as good a carrier as 
anything else.
