If someone came into your house and deposited junk mail in your underwear
drawer, would you feel violated? ..... Sending unsolicited attachments,
especially to all members of a list like this, is the same sort of
violation. I like reading your messages, but I don't like you depositing
files on my hard disk through attachments. If no one sent unsolicited
attachments, then virus attachments would be very easy to notice. Am I
making myself clear? The same goes for v-cards.

I'm sorry to be blunt, but if you desire to send an attachment, don't send
to the list. Do that privately. If you feel that you have a wonderful
lesson plan, let us know and we'll request that you attach it to a personal
e-mail. Thank you.
