Re: [BKARTS] No Subject - See Attachment ... PLEASE TYPE A SUBJECT IN YOUR POSTS ... a virus consideration



This is not meant as a scold to the person who posted the email below  ...
but with the new spammers delivering deadly attachments with subjects lines
like "can't deliver" and "no subject" ... I recommend we all fill in the
subject line with something meaningful to the post. It's harder for
auto-spammers to make meaningful subject lines for listservs ... and it also
really helps those of us who don't open notes we don't plan to take
advantage of.

I know theree's been some discussion on the current viruses, but foror those
who still don't understand this ...   viruses are delivered in attachments
via a posts which appear to be from a known listserv member. Thus, it was
impossible to know if this post was a virus without opening the attachment
(which  I chose not to do).

A meaningful headline in the subject area and a little introductory text
both helps people know it isn't a virus/spam. Meaningful intros might also
entice more people to open the attachment.

Thanks!
