You know something? Filing these reports for random virus bounces,
instead of just filtering out the viruses and leaving them alone would

a time sink. Getting ISPs to implement preventive measures (decent spam
and virus filtering, ACL'ing off "dangerous" ports across a home
broadband network, etc) is a better idea.
