I've heard that web pages can transmit viruses to your system through your
browser, but in that case, you know who the culprit is, so this discourages
that kind of an attack. The difference is that email attachments can pick up
viruses anonymously, making it difficult to locate the hackattacker.

analog computing, cultural relativism, GAC, Cyc, Eliza, and ego.

We won't move into a better future until we debunk religiosity, the most
regressive force now operating in society.
