[meteorite-list] List Virus warning - please read

Sorry to trouble the list,
But I have been kindly contacted by Thomas Webb asking if I had
sent posts to the list with attachments. PLEASE NOTE: I have not!
Apparently, there are viruses that now attach themselves to actual
posts and piggyback to whomever the real sender sends emails. I heard
discussion of this today on KPBS radio. They are called "drones."
So, please note: I NEVER send posts to the list with attachments - I
ALWAYS use internal URL links (as per list rules re photos). On some
rare occasion I might have an attachment of something other than a
photo - but would definitely make reference to same within the text.
(This is true regardless of to whom I am posting).
So, if you get a post to the list from me (including THIS ONE!) that
has an "attachment" not identified within the test of the message, DO NOT
OPEN IT! (This is a very good "rule of thumb" in general with ALL email,
in my opinion).
Sorry if anyone got bitten via a piggyback virus on any of my posts.
Best wishes, Michael

Bush -- "It is always a simple matter to drag people along whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. This is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in every country." - Hermann Goering -- When Jesus said "Love your enemies" I think he probably meant don't kill them.
