Popping the Balloon of Hyperbole

Some company in the UK has come up with a massive dollar cost of the myDoom virus. Which put me onto a fabulous site I’m sorry I didn’t find before. VMyths:

“Learn about com計uter virus myths, hoaxes, urban legends, hys負eria, and the impli苞a負ions if you be衍ieve in them. You can also search a list of com計uter virus hoaxes & virus hys負eria from A to Z. “

I’ve long held a suspicion that interested parties are not backward in ramping up the supposed scale and impact of virus alerts, terrorist attacks on the Internet and other mass media hysteria. VMyths is all about popping the ballon of hyperpole, with plenty of sarcasm, wit and humour.
