Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Again, our apologies for the bogus dispatches being
generated at Yahoo!Groups, which has yet to solve
its security problem. But we're nagging them about
it, and the bogus messages are not harmful. Since
Yahoo!Groups does not allow transmission of attached
files, these e-mails can't carry viruses -- which is
one reason for sticking with Yahoo!Groups despite

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Twice today Yahoo!Groups, which manages the GATA
e-mail dispatch list, has sent you a nonsensical
message with GATA's address on it, apparently
generated by a virus that has invaded Yahoo!Groups.

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

David Bond's new "Wallace (Idaho) Street Journal"
