BlankPlease excuse cross-posting.

Many of the e-mails that are, or contain attachments infected with viruses
have apparently innocuous language in the subject area.  Since the beginning
of May I have received fourteen with "hello" as the subject!  Fortunately I
and one of my ISP's have software that intercepts them.

It would be helpful if new members could be encouraged to avoid using only
"hello" or "introduction" in the subject of their first posting.

Many thanks

Frank McCall
