One can't be infected because it's not on the internet. Why is the
other one safe?
It seems that nobody bothers to infect classic macs. Anyway, spyware
would be easy to eliminate on a classic mac.
I do get email spam, but not on Choreboy, with which I have posted to
usenet without munging. The spam, perhaps ten pieces a day, comes to
another email address. It started after I filled out a form asking an
online vendor to tell me when an item was in stock. I think somebody
there made money selling customer email addresses.
