Subject: M$ puts bounty out for Blaster and
	Sobigculprits

Too true, and I admit anything I write is probably swiss-cheese crap for
several iterations whenever I try something new or improved.

What I was attempting to say is that when you live in the ghetto and get
robbed because you forgot to lock your door, /SOME/ of the blame falls
on you.

Just my view.  I hate to start a flame war or a snowball this topic into
9000 posts, mail me directly if you wish.
