I am all for some friendly chatter, jokes, and innocent banter on the
Histonet now and then. It certainly brightens up otherwise humdrum days.
However, working at a large university, where computers are infected with
viruses almost on a monthly basis, I have become wary of placing my name on
any email mailing list. Inasmuchas I agree that the world is getting too
cynical and we all could use a bit of levity among 'friends', it is still my
contention that we should be careful where we send our addresses. Once a
virus gets into your address book, you're screwed. All I was saying in a
previous e, was to think twice about the source before answering (or opening
up) such requests.
All that said and done.... keep sending those day brighteners, people!
