Subject: viruses being sent to list

Hi John,

I really don't know how often this list has to go through this senseless
discussion about virus filtering.

For Christ's sake, implement a proper defense yourself and stop whining.
This is a security related list so I guess the list owner can expect a
little security awareness of the subscribers.

I receive around 80 infected mails a month "from this list", so what?!
Other people receive 2000 infected mails (not necessarily list related)
a week and they don't mind.

no hard feelings,
