    Folks -
    I just got this v. suspicious message. My assumption is that were I to
    on the link bad things would happen and my IT department would hate me
    I would hate myself), but I am curious. I have edited the link to make
    ineffective - I assume most on this list wouldn't do something this
    dumb but
    don't want to be responsible for some lurker, etc. screwing up - if
    is interested in figuring out what the point is I'd be happy to forward
    original message and links off-list and would love to know your
