Re: [Fwd: Attn: Robin Members - YOU_are_FAT.TXT.pif Virus Bear Careful Watching]


I find it scary that you are sending us messages with "virus" in the subject
line and asking us to open the attachment. Would it have been better to cut
and paste the message in the attachment into a regular e-mail so we don't
have to open an unknown attachment? My computer tells me not to open this
attachment because it may contain a virus.

What's going to happen when you pick up a virus that automatically mails
itself to everyone in your mail box and we open it because we consider you a
trustworthy source?

I realize your message told us that you were aware of the attachment being
sent to us and this is the reason I ignored my computers warning and opened
and read the attachment. I worry that we may be lulled into a false sense of
security and then one day we all go down at once.

Thanks for all of your help,
