RE: SECURITY WARNING: love warning is a HOAX! Do not delete this file!The inevitable sense of humor I'm afraid! Apologies if I offended you. The original article amused me, and I like to share my fun with people I consider as friends. I'd be interested to know why it upset you I missing something here?

    I just got a rather interesting security warning from my fiancee, which I shall share with you here in case any of you have the same problem...

      There is an old hoax that is making the rounds again. I have seen a dozen
      instances of this in the last 24 hours. It seems to happen round about
      February 14th every year.
      WARNING! The message about the human emotion "love" being a virus is
      a HOAX. The message tricks you into thinking that you have a virus and
      asks you to delete a part of your brain normally found in human operating

      If you have already deleted this file, you can get it back from your
      upload backup following the directions found here:

> 6. Delete this brain structure
> 7. It will ask you if you want to send it to the recycle bin-say yes
> 8. Go to your frontal lobes and double click on the recycle bin.
> 9. Right click on emotion and delete again- empty the bin.
