Errrrr ....

The problem is how to quickly delete this flood of e-mail.

Linux is TOTALLY immune to the virus, although WINE might be able to run 
it.  Has some either brave or stupid user tried this?

These messages, the ones that I have received, are to variable to use a 
message filter on them since the message filters do not read the body of 
the message.  You need a trainable spam filter for this.
