Dear Ken,

When the OSA virus trashed my system a couple months back, I sent
everybody in my address book a warning.  Yesterday I, too, received
the message you mention below.  My virus checker said it was
contaminated and would not allow me to open it.  I replied to the
sender, kindly, telling him that.  I got a reply that contained only:
":)".  This morning I got notification that my previous message of
warning had not gone through to several people, all with BYU e-mail
addresses, after 48 DAYS!  Putting all that together with your message
below suggests somebody with access to BYU is sending a virus to
everybody on my mailing list.  Ergo, I'm CCing this warning to
everybody on the list.  Don't open the message.  Kill it in place.
And join me in a salute to the Catholic hacker who obviously is trying
to give BYU a bad name!

He'll read this, I suppose.  In his honor, then:  Ya, kaesaekkiya.
Kat'un kyoinursso nomo komawora.  Ttong chom mani mogoraya.  Cham,
mogodo morugenne.
