Pro-actively dropping all non-priority attachments is not by any means
"security by obscurity".  I am not hiding anywhere.  I am smashing all
viruses flat before they even have a chance to enter my email AV server.  If
anyone gets ugly who happens to know the priority extension, the AV gateway
will get it anyway.

BTW, I'm damn proud of those letters, worked hard for them and never took a
day of school or "boot camp".
