Well, you know...most normal users don't know what a exploit is, they
would never know what FD is..lol

But you are right..I was going easy on the n00bs. ;)

Number 1, I highly doubt than a spam message would be very 
effective 
using the FD list of address only. Number 2, this list is full of 
security professional (white, black and grey) and I would 
guess that 
most of the core users you see on here would not just run a 
attachment 
or be fooled by the double extensions trick. Given there 
most likely 
are "normal internet users" on this list but I would guess 
that number 
is pretty low.

Might want to re-think that number 2, based on how many 
people complain about viruses and malware posted to the list....
