Judi, this list is so large that if the members begin sending out virus messages
to the entire list we begin to have problems. I am not saying that the person
with the virus should not have been notified, I am only saying that I am here,
working behind the scenes and when I learn of a member with a virus I take care
of it privately. I am not upset with you and there is no need to apologize.
You just gave me an opportunity to remind the list what to do in case they
receive a message with a virus from one of our members.
I know it is hard when there are so many different lists and each list owner has
their own rules....
