I delete all of that postcard, E card or whatever crap.
I am not that thrilled with real cards in the mail and I certainly have no interest in spam mail card

It's a good idea to be wary of anything you get unexpected, even if it appears to be from someone you know.

Stuff like this has been going around since the Internet first became popular... Bottom line is, know what you're opening and make sure you've got antivirus/anti-spyware software. However, never assume that you're safe from anything.

I'm also of the opinion that people should really be educated before they get a computer and go online... Just like driving a car, you're not the only one who you're endangering. With viruses and the like, you could be spreading e-harm without even knowing it.
