Though I regard this topic as utterly off topic, it is a topic that 
should have everyones attention now and then. I am on the cable to, but 
(though it is no excuse, still a reason) since i am on a mac i have no 
virus protection and no firewall turned on.

You make it sound as if it is turned on by default, but thats not true, 
is it?

I am bothered more often lately by Spam.  I notice a difference a when 
a mail comes from a windows user and a mac user.
That's why I post this mail.

 From the mails I recieve on this topic 'virus' the one from Evert 
(sorry Evert) is read in as spam whereas the mails from Charles and 
Walter are not.
Evert I  is on Windows and Charles and Walter are on a Mac.  I don't 
think it is anything bad, I just noticed the difference and I haven't 
figured out what to think of it.
