Get over it.

We use Microsoft products as well as other products and we have very strong
security policies -- firewall, server antivirus, blocking attachments,
client antivirus with updates three times a week, automated patching, etc.

In short, we take responsibility for running the software we use.  Te expect
a public mailing list to "protect" you is similar to expecting the
automakers to "protect" you by steering your vehicle for you.

Protect yourself.

As an online security related discussion progresses, the probability of someone making an awkward comparison to the automotive industry approaches one.

(I figured I couldn't possibly take us any further off-topic.)
