Why is list-wide screening fundamental, exactly? This is a full
disclosure list, meaning people can and will talk about things like
viruses. If you've got something filtering out possibly "infected"
emails, you may very well have problems with false positives. I think
that we're all big boys and girls here, and I think we're all pretty
capable of running secure email clients (read: not outlook) and
antivirus software (for those of us that run windows). I think things
should stay as they are, let us handle what should be filtered and what
shouldn't be.
