Virus and Daffodils

The responses about virus and daffodils are unwelcome news to me, to say the least.  All cultivars in commerce are virused?  What are the symptoms?  Seed raised daffodils may not be virus-free?  Can anyone enlighten me?  I love daffodils and have several cultivars but none show streaking, lack of vigor or any of the symptoms that have been described in other bulbs.  The only thing I notice is that sometimes they skip a year in flowering.

Thanks in advance,
