I must have had nearly 100 e-mail messages carrying the worm before I saw the
first PICList posting about the worm.  It's more likely that those of us on the
PICList forced to use Outlook are smart enough not to open e-mail with
attachments that look so suspicious.  Secondly, I imagine that most PICList
members that use Outlook and choose to carelessly open e-mail attachments, don't
have the PICList in their address books.
