Regarding the above message,  I must say most strongly that attaching
enclosures to list postings is HIGHLY discouraged (not to mention
asking them not to show it to anyone else!).  Apart from the risk
of a virus, it also means everyone on the list has to suffer the inconvenience
of downloading a document they might not want, and in many cases might
not be able to read (Unix etc). 

I must say here that in future, anyone attaching a document to a posting
may  be unsubscribed from the list without warning. This includes the
visiting card (vcf) attachments, which are also considered bad list etiquette.

If you do wish to bring a document to the attention of the list, then place
it on an ftp/http server somewhere so that anyone interested can download
it themselves (the pull rather than the push option).
