Of course this hasn't come through B-Greek at all--and won't without facing
moderation; Bill Klein is not a list-member and the list will not accept
messages from non-list-members. Note that the "Re:" precedes the bracketed
"[b-greek]" meaning that the message was NOT distributed by our server. In
fact this appears, Maurice, to be based upon your own response under that
subject-header to a message of Jonathan Robie on July 12 of the summer just
past. I have seen references on B-Translation to the virus being sent out
from that address, however. And although we do get too many virus hoax
notices, it's best to be on one's guard against them.
