Re: Warning but this won't crash your system!

Jack,
You mean that word with the a and the e was in that message and this is what 
did it?  Well, I couldn't have dreamed of anticipating that as I began to 
let Jaws read the message.  I even took the trouble to press alt enter 
before opening the message, just to ascertain that it was at least from this 
freelist mailing list, not some unsubscribed spammer. the return path was 
this list and server, so I thought, sure, it's got to be an earnest message. 
Which it was, if a little badly thought out.
Why are people making such a self-righteous fuss over how alert we should be 
to the seven danger signals of potentially troublesome email messages?  And 
this had nothing to do with attachment, so all those references are beside 
the point anyway.  Jeez.  Why can't people be a little sympathetic and put 
the blame where it belongs.

Just a strong suggestion.

Thanks,
Daniel

I agree Robert,  I didn't even read the original message because I had a 
funny
feeling that the offending crash word would be there.  It's not like this is
news.  Has everyone been reading all of the posts about this over the past 
few
days?  How could anyone have missed all of the talk about that word.  I'm 
not
going to blast anyone, but folks, please read through all of the messages 
you
have from this list before sending stuff like this through.  This whole 
thing
could have been avoided.  Jack

When people send a warning to the list, please don't send the very message 
you
are warning about. Separate the offending text with spaces and/or commas or 
both
but please don't be so idiotic as to crash everybody's system.
Remember there are likely many folks on the list who might find it very
difficult to get Jaws up and running again.
I hope the next time someone does this the moderator will deal with them 
very
severely.
After all, what's the point of getting a warning if the warning itself is 
going
to accomplish exactly what you are warning against?
I mean, really, THINK ABOUT IT!!!!!
