    @Dale
    I don't know how I should notify PF about this but the email notification I received about this post was put in my Junk box with a virus warning. I wonder if anyone else had this happen, too?

    OSX is usually pretty reliable about these things but it could jut be a glitch.

    Oh, it's Dale's post that you quoted. That rules out a hidden link in the post then...

    To clear it up.
    It was the email I was sent, telling me of Dale's post. (#69 in the Work thread.
    But I would think that other people had copies of that notification and they don't seem to have had the same Junk treatment that my Mac Mail gave it. Also, I have not had a repeat with subsequent notifications.
