Please, If you don't want it to fill up your hard drive, don't download it!
The delete key is to the right on your keyboard. I think it is GREAT to share
info. Some of it has to be downloaded. The last thing we need on this list
is a "rule" on what can and can't be said or done. Even though some of the
posts bug me immensely (: P)
I still look at them with a bit of humor and thank the getty foundation for
making this forum with it's free and open format possible.

I personally do not download things through e-mail unless I know the exact
source, AND the exact source that that source got it from, what kind of file
it is, etc.--kinda like sex--you need to protect yourself if you want to
experiment with multiple partners. If you don't then you are putting your
life (or computer) at risk.
