I hope you have proof that somebody on this list has infected you, because that is a pretty serious accusation.

Firstly, nobody on this list would deliberately send you a virus.
Secondly, you are running Linux. It is very unlikely that you actually have a virus.
It sounds as if you are talking about receiving spam email - unwanted email full of adverts. In which case you want to learn how to use a spam filter, like everybody else does. I receieve about 200 emails every day, but thanks to my spam filter I never have to read the ones with the adverts.

Cool down, and don't accuse people unlesss you have proof.
