Hello Walter,

            I was very pleased to read your your comment below.  Very
reassuring, given that I am also a Mac user.  But could it be that you are
being a bit rash?=20

I don't fully understand how these viruses circulate, but if someone on
naturerecordists is infected, and your message gets circulated outside the
group as a result, might it not be seen as a challenge by some virus writer
to come up with something that does wreck Macs?  Not necessarily your OS X,
but my OS 9, maybe?

I sure hope not, but ....
