I don't deny that my reply was blunt and maybe lacking in some area's and
for that I do apologize , now I will take the time to explain my position
more clearly and quote from anther members reply who expressed my own views
with a little more eloquence.

I couldn't agree with these sentiments more.

I have no trouble reading at all and that's why I'm sick of reading about
people like yourself trying to flog a dead horse with subjects like 'FD
should block attachments' and 'viruses being sent to this list' or
suggesting moderation of the list in a post.


>I did not say we should filter the content of the list.

Well why would you pick a subject like, 'FD should block attachments' would
this not be a filtering of some kind?.
I agree a link to a virus would be a much better way intentionally posting
such a file but most of the virus that hit the list are not intentional as
they seem to be coming from someone infected.
This topic also has been flogged to death on this very list.

I see nothing new in your post at all only the renaming of an old topic.
Next time if I bother to reply to such a post it wont be at 2AM, however I'm
thinking now that this whole thread is a waste of bandwidth.
