Thanks Shelly for the comments - so true.  I should also say that we can
be more vigilant on our side too.  Like I said before, The developers of
eloquence should be brought to bare once and for all to fix their
defective product so that people can't crack it all the time.  The fixes
out there now came from people who redistribute it; that is Freedom
provided exception dictionary entries to patch the problem.  GW Micro
uses an older version that doesn't suffer this anomaly.  These are all
good but are mere bandages to the original problem.  

Safe computer practices can go a very long ways to protect us from
becoming a victom of computer crimes.

I'm glad he got busted though.  E-mail spoofing and distributing
deceptive trojan software is dispicable.  Make him pay dearly but we can
protect ourselves and still have a most positive computing experience
