"Hey, we all get "caught" once in a while! No apology needed, you were only thinking in our best interests!" --Sherry
"I also did same thing once." --Marion
"And Add To The List: The Homepage Virus Is Doing The rounds again." --Michael
"Please check out any "virus warning" you receive. Most are hoaxes." --Sharon
"Thanks for information. It is better to be safe, and warn your friends and customers, than to be sorry!" --Ben
"You were trying to do right thing and that's all that matters." --Cindy
I'm not aware of any unsubscribes due to my snafu but I did get an online greeting card to cheer me up.
I learned 2 things from this incident:
1) Treat people right and they will return it tenfold. --Treat them as you would be treated.
2) Investigate any and all unknown virus claims. --It only takes a couple of minutes to check out a virus warning to see if it's real or not.
The word *propagate* is defined as: to transmit (characteristics) from one generation to another; to breed or multiply.
Check out these useful and informative sites before you unknowingly propagate a *deadly virus*:

So, take it from a *former email viral propagator victim*, investigate that next virus warning before you send it out, and see if it's on list.
Otherwise, hoax will be on you.
