You really don't have to do this. I notice these things and take
steps to correct them. You just add to the spam by being one of the
many "helpful" people clamoring to bring it to my attention.
I have had system problems for the last few days which make it hard
to read email but that just means I have to deal with 27 people saying
"HEY! I JUST NOTICED A VIRUS!" all at once.
