[CT Birds] Malicious Links on CT Digest

A real simple suggestion is to avoid opening any messages with brief,  
out-of-character subjects.  On CTBirds, "Hey" is a perfect example.
If you have opened a message, avoid clicking on a link when there  is 
either no text or very brief text leading up to it--especially if the  text is 
out-of-character.  It's the link that will do  the damage.
Unfortunately, it's easy for these people to pick-up e-mail addresses  so 
they appear to come from legitimate parties like Neil or Roy.  But they  
won't bother tailoring the message to any listserve or group like CTBirds.   
Instead, they rely on volume.  Those messages go to large numbers and broad  
varieties of recipients so it's easy to see whether they make sense on
