(OT) Messege sent to me, thought I'd pass it on
- Okay this morning I went to check my mail and there
was this document from a hahaha. It came with an
attachment, something to do with a Snow White story.
It sounded suspicious so off I go and make sure all my
anti-virus programs are on just in case, then I open
the mail, to check the individual's internet provider,
DID NOT open the attachment, send the mail to trash
and then did a check on goggle. Turns out that it is
a virus, nasty one.
For further information, on the virus. Now see I am in
web only when it comes to the mailing list so that
either means a list got compromise or a friends
computer got the virus, so I am just sending this
warning for everyone to please don't open attachments
and make sure to delete suspicious emails.

- Hey all,
Now I think it's been mentioned here before, but I'm going to mention it
again with a quick addition this time in the hopes of keeping things well on
track. Here on XMMFF, which is starting to dance towards the 600 member
mark (WOW!), OT posts, unless REALLY REALLY necessary, should not be put
here, and if you really want to put it to the list, send it to one of your
fearless list moderators beforehand for the go-ahead. We're a rather busy
list as is, and since it's fanfic based, there's not much space for
discussion (for that, go to xmenmoviefanficdisc. I think that's the right
name....:)), so please, watch what you post here.
And, for everyone's information, we have eGroups (oh, I mean YahooGroups
*sigh*) automatically dump any attachments that are sent to XMMFF,
accidental or otherwise, as a safety measure. Alot of it is because of the
virus risk-- we like to have a safe haven for our fic habit. But... if
you're sending fic to this list via an attachment, it's obviously not
getting through either, so pretty please with mutant DNA on top, cut and
paste, cut and paste.
Anyhoo, carry on. fanfic good. :)
co-mod, XMMFF, LRFC, FKp... oh, never mind....
