that is certainly what the malware authors and users hope that we'll all do,
so listen up.  just because many of the infected hosts won't be disinfected,
don't assume that there's no value in tracking and reporting them, or that
there's no reason to spend money listening to and acting on complains about
them.  the internet's immune system needs *more* resources, not fewer.
