SV: [Pali] Re: Word file
I just want to alert you to the fact that my virus program detected a virus
in one of Keren's mails some time ago. That must have been the fatal one.

There are many reasons, some that I can think of:
1) A specific personal attack against you.

3) Both, this group and you were chosen for some reason (mostly
thinking that most of the users on this list are not heavy into
