"wwwboard"-based forum; for the current forum,
I keep these old messages here mostly because people keep finding them in Web searches, and I hate broken links. Most of those searches are about the FunLove virus, or the "Elf Bowl" game. These old postings should not be considered authoritative on those subjects!
For information on FunLove, I suggest anti-virus Web sites, like this and this. If you're wondering if the Elf Bowl game is a virus, try here or here. For Elf Bowl and related games, try a Google search, or perhaps some possibly related website like this or this.

I should really look at this page more often, eh?
There's still no reason to believe that that game is in any way a Trojan horse, so there's no need to worry. The original rumor was that it would go off and mess your whole system up on Christmas, so we know that that's false at least...
