    It seems that the malware writers feel it is best to avoid Macs where the malware 
    might be detected, and focus on the many that aren’t protected.

    I think is what they were saying was most malware will still try to load even though you have AV as most PCs have. Here they are stating that the malware is sophisticated enough to know if AV is installed and so not to try to load onto an AV installed machine so they can hide the small attack wave from the Mac community. If it was trying to load on the smart Mac users who use AV they would see a attack wave was starting and Mac sites would be talking about all the AV popups on a key logging Trojan. Then more sales of Mac AV and more downloads of Sophos free for Mac would happen. .

    Only the best malware, almost magical, for Mac. No wonder Mac users are not alarmed.

    Your ~Offensive phrase removed~ answers are so becoming, and the naive Mac Geniuses and Mac zealots say Macs still don't need AV.

    Is there anything wrong with my spelling or sentence structure? You are that kind of guy, I see.

    No, you don't see or else you wouldn't have come up with what you just wrote.
