    So when the question came up on NAVLIST the next day I had to do a double take. Was sombody spying on my personal emails?


    There are computers today that know more about you than you know about yourself.  I’m sure my MRI records do.  Still, it could be worse.  I once read a short story about a fly that fell into a printing machine in a totalitarian regime employed recording citizens records.  The unfortunate citizen whose name ended up with a black mark against it caused by the squashed fly was thereafter damned for life, because his records branded him as such.  After all his records couldn’t possibly in error; they came out of the computer.  DaveP
