Tongue-in-cheek: well it might help in convincing more list denizens to 
not post with Outlook.

Seriously: Bret, that's a specious argument and I'd appreciate you using 
more honourable debating tactics if you plan to continue participating 
in our little alleged virus-swapping community.

You could reasonably say "_a_ purpose of Linux Australia" and then the 
question would merely be rhetorical and rude, but saying "_the_ 
purpose" is extremely and pointedly insulting to all of the efforts 
(and results) of the many intelligent and hard-working people who 
contribute to LA and to this list. In their name, I ask you to never do 
that again.

Cheers; Leon
