Hi all

Due to the high volume of subscribe emails containing the W32/Sobig ect worm 
that keep coming to me as I am one of the admins  I have made this list a 
complete closed list.

What this means is that we the admins should not get any more subscribe-to 
emails as messages submitted to a closed-post list by non-members will now get 
thrown away.  

This as a temporary measure just to see if the worm attack can be halted.

Subscribed members will still be able to post as normal. 

So far in the last week I have had 70 subscribe emails  from the list each 
carrying the W32/Sobig worm virus so far AVG has quarantined them so that I can 
delete and kill them.



Outgoing mail is certified Virus Free.
