Keep in mind that when someone's machine is infected they cannot control
what is being sent. The first person that sent this attachment (the virus)
did not do so intentionally. It was sent to everyone in their address book-
including the RPML. Maybe "rapid-dude" should filter attachments (and

Pistor and all, I personally think that's a great idea! Is there any real
need to allow attachments to an exploder? Anybody wishing to send
attachments could do so one-on-one.

Dear list,

I am subscribed to several newsgroups, but the none of them is ever infected
with viruses. Only the rp-ml always carries the newest viruses. Luckily, I
never got infected so far, but these attachments carry a certain risk. Can't
we get rid of attachments. If people want to share files they can do this by
private mail, over an internet site or by sending each other disks.
