    HELP! I just got the Amish Virus!

    Since we've been talking about being helpful to each other in forums, I NEED YOUR HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11111

    I just got this e-mail:

    You have just received the Amish virus. Because we don't have any computers, or programming experience, this virus works on the honor system. Please delete all the files from your hard drive and manually forward this virus to everyone on your mailing list. Thank you for your cooperation.
    Should I do what it says?!
