Virus?

[From Bill Powers (2000.09.19.0131]

Just deleted without reading it a post with the subject "Getting back to
you regarding your request." I smelled an attempt to get me to open a file,
and thought I would pass on a warning about a suspected virus. My advice is
not to open any message file that refers to a request that you don't
remember making, or that is an obvious come-one. Don't even look at what's
in it. Most of them are just advertisements (like "Earn $50000 a year in
your spare time"), but it's not worth the risk even to look at them. There
are lots of malicious children out there.

Best,

Bill P.
