Yelling "FIRE!" in a movie theater will get people to get up and run, even if they don't see or smell a fire - it's no different on the 'net. Just a friendly reminder not to trust emails and to keep spreading the word to people who would otherwise not know better.

From Microsoft Fri Jun 12 10:52:22 2009I do notice that Yahoo! does immediately dump this into the SPAM directory (hopefully because the domainkeys doesn't authenticate) but there should be a bigger warning! If the DomainKeys auth doesn't match there should be a big, blaring, impossible-to-miss flashing red sign on the header that says "THIS IS FORGED"... but that's just my suggestion.
