I am really baffled by what happened.
Seems to me that any list should prevent attachments from being forwarded to
the subscribers of a list...
I am on other lists and attachments are usually trashed before they go out
What baffles me is that a list made for/by IT experts can fall into such a
trap. A lesson to be learned, I guess.
Anyway, it seems to be over, fortunately.
Please prevent this from happening again.
A thought: it might have been some stupid racist attempt, judging by the
"hey African!" beginning of the message. I saw this kind of
flooding/harassing happpening on african related newsgroups etc., and it's
always because of the "afri-" something subject.
