Re: announcements trapped by anti-viral filter

What is this discussion doing here?

I'm getting REALLY sick of having to continually police this mailing list.

I don't know why people can't keep the really simple rule straight.

Does this have something to do with applications that are distributed
with cygwin?  No?  Then keep it in

It's particularly puzzling why you would redirect this here when there is
no guarantee that the original poster is even subscribed to cygwin-apps.
