I've started worrying more and more about
copy-pasting seemingly-safe URLs
that are UTF-8 encoded with alternate
characters that map to what appear
to be safe ascii characters; the use
of plain-text email helps ameliorate
that risk somewhat, but years of -T
usage in perl have taught me to not
trust any input I haven't validated for
myself.

In short--anything arriving into my
inbox, I assume to be potentially
compromised; much like with credit
card companies, I prefer to dial
their number myself, before giving
any important information out.

Thanks!

Matt
