You might receive a file full of false information or anti-theosophical 
propaganda... To post it on a web page or site associated with Theosophy 
World would give it credibility by appearing to sanction its unedited 

The three alternatives originally suggested seem to be enough, and would 
relieve you of the responsibility for the content of whatever information 
might be forwarded to the group by unknown members of (an unmoderated forum 
such as) theos-talk -- leaving the burden of proving credibility on the 
individual sender. 

The first alternative will take care of the virus problem, since only those 
requesting it would be concerned -- and, I'm sure "a word to the wise" (about 
handling unsolicited downloads) will be sufficient.
