Oh? Who voted you to speak on behalf of everyone? I am grateful that -Z-
placed the virus warning on the GML, as I'm sure are many other GMLers. Also,
seeing as -Z- is extrememly knowledgable in the computer field (how many
technical computer books have YOU authored?), I can be assured it is NOT a hoax.
-Z- posts some of the most informative messages to this ML, and he has done it

If you don't like it, get off this mailing list and go find a Wing ML.
I'm sure most of the other readers of this ML agree with me, but don't wish to
spark a flame war. I, however, feel it necessary to point out your foolishness.
