This is very cute,

Certainly I won't be foolish enough to argue that it won't happen, but is it
realistic enough that it will happen to warrant such exclusions? Does it
happen with paper submissions so often that it's a problem? If I was so
inclined, I could do a paper submission with all the same intentions as you
described above, it will still do the same harm and the only way to stop it is
tighter security measures than are in place now. So, why put more strict
limitations on e-mail? You say that it's to easy electronically, I say it's
just as easy with paper and one is no more valid, legitimate, or detectable
than the other without some familiarity on the receivers part.
>May companies also do not accept e-mail in matters where security is
If the heralds were a company this might be an issue. However, we think we are
noble and do not think any less of anyone else unless they show otherwise, so
why would you, or I worry about such things?

A fine example to, it made me think about a few things. Thanks,
