My intention was not to start a discussion, but as this is an open list
and I caused it, I will now participate until we hear word from higher
plains of existence (i.e. list managers).

We can go into an endless discussion on liability. As FD is being used
to spread malware, repeatedly, and filtering that malware is a matter of

One would think the FD managers would do something about this.

This is not about the infected user, the VX'ers, or the ISP's.

It is about this particular forum being used to spread malware for a
while now. It is time the managers, who have so far showed to be logical
and responsible people, to take action and do what must be done.
