Re:  Col. Tim Collins (Retd.) on 'Cynical Iraq War'

I received that piece, NOT as an attachment but as an ordinary news 
article... Usually I have a hard time receiving attachments cause I only 
have web-tv, but this was not.

I'm not sure how your system works.  This is how mine works.  I have a 
regular ibm based computer system, I log onto the Internet, I go to the 
website address of the MB Civic List at 
http://www.islandlists.com/pipermail/mb-civic/ which lets me choose which 
month I want to view posts in, I pick a month and then I select either by 
Thread Subject Author or Date and click on one, which brings me to a page 
where all the posts are at, I then click on the post of my choice.  In that 
system I use, Attachments, of any kind, get scrubbed, or deleted, or turned 
into html mishmash for the most part by getting into Civic the way I 
do.  It's no big deal actually, I read what my machine will allow, and 
whine just now and then about the ones I can't.  Anyways, I don't "receive" 
anything, I go looking for the posts at the Internet Civic website, and if 
someone sent me an "attachment" in personal email, I'd delete it anyway 
just to avoid a potential virus.  To each his own.  I'll just have to live 
with whatever is on my plate...
