Hi Jim,

I would not have continued this thread, if it weren't for the signs of
a misunderstanding either on my or on your part. If it is my fault, I would
like to know so I can apologize. I certainly don't want to waste your or
anybody else's time.

I surely must have missed something. I can't see that Paula made such a
request, direct or indirect. I think there was such a request on this list
in the past, but I think it was made by someone else?

I agree with what you said about being strict towards people who ask you to
hack other peoples system. But with Paula, I don't think she even realised
that this is a mailing list, or that the sender address was faked. I only
see one post by her, where she shows a complete lack of understanding how
spam works, and I am not sure she would know what "hacking a system" means.
