a note to emailers

If you send me anything as an attachment, I'm not going to open it. I don't care if all my virus-detectors and spyware shit tells me that it's safe, I'm STILL not going to open it. I don't care if I know you on a first-name basis--- I NEVER OPEN ATTACHMENTS ON ANY EMAIL.

That's my rule, and I don't intend to violate it. So... if you sent me something really clever as an attachment on an email and I didn't respond, that's probably why. I've managed to stay virus-free and non-violated on the net for more than three years now, and I don't intend to break that string.

If you can't send it straight-up, don't send it.


Rob, you're a wise man. I just did a trackback to a post I wrote yesterday on this subject. There is a new virus out there that could allow the virus writers the ability to hold your computer "hostage". Not pretty stuff.
