There are rumors that a chain letter virus has been circling cp's pm system. Once you open the pm, it will insert the "Love CP" virus into your computer. Contained in the message, it urges you to forward it to as many people as you can. Here's a clipping of the message, so you know what to look out for:

Howdy there, neighbor! With the recent election, and people accusing CP of being dead, let's have some unity! If you want to see this site become great, simply remind yourself and everyone else to, by adding the four magic letters to your signature!

What are those four magic letters, you might ask?

Make
This
Site
Great!

If you want to see CP become the best it can be, SECRETLY send this letter to one CPer who you think can help make CP great, and add your name to the bottom of this list. With any luck, we can all be joined together!

And don't break the chain! It'd be awful to have bad luck! So you better remember: Sign up above, add MTSG to your signatures, and forward this entire message to ONE person!

Ditto dos.

I hope that everyone knows that this is false. I hate to see some person flee this site thinking, "OH NOEZ, IT'S TEH VIRUS! IT KILZ!" This is how those internet hoaxes start. It's very rare that a virus is going to enter your system through opening an email, much less a Private Message on a webforum.

Interestingly enough, this actually seems to be based on the Love Bug Virus, that lovely little worm that infected millions due to the fact that they wished to open this love letter from some person on their contact list. Maybe this post is a reminder, always check before you open an attachment. (And definitely be wary about those filename.ext.ext. Those can get dangerous (And damn these programs that get that and think that's it!))
