Hello Scott,

I've just deleted the originals messages of these threads from my
newsreader. Now you've replied to all three and I have them back again.
Groan!! :-((

You say DO NOT OPEN, but there's nothing *to* open.

FYI these are not viruses. They *were* originally, but the virus code has
been removed which is why they are 14K instead of over 100K. The size is due
to the graphic not any virus code. They are harmless now, except that they
waste space and people's time.

If you are going to respond to these messages, have the decency not to
**include** the message in your response. You are propagating the message as
if you were infected yourself.

Thanks,
On behalf of everyone.

I'm supposed to know what you've deleted from your newsreader and not
respond to those messages?! LOL

You say DO NOT OPEN, but there's nothing *to* open.
Perhaps in YOUR newsreader, but there are attachements to the post in mine.
We don't all use what you are using.

waste space and people's time.
Again, they are not harmless (perhaps to you they are) because the
attachments are still on the post(s)!
If you are going to respond to these messages, have the decency not to
**include** the message in your response. You are propagating the message as if you were infected yourself.
Ok. But I didn't realize this made me an indecant person!

Thanks,
On behalf of everyone.
I'm sorry, I wasn't at the meeting where YOU were elected to speak for
EVERYONE! Clearly, your system is not set up the same way mine is and so
clearly you can't speak for everyone, so please DON'T!
