Indeed, this particular bugger is aimed at certain
electronic environs of the Microsoft variety. And when
someone sends a diseased post to APD, lots of other
issuances of the bugger go out to other addresses from the
mail box of that sender -- it multiplies and goes forth ;-)
But the APD list only accepts and forwards plain text,
nothing fancy and no attachments. So, just to be clear
about mucky topic, you won't catch a virus from the mail
APD sends you.
