Hi,

Many thanks, Yosem, Brian and Nathan for this initiative!

This may be a silly question, but how exactly does downloading something
from a a Dropbox link differ from downloading an email attachment? The
basic issue of potentially malicious binaries from a potentially spoofed 
source is still there, isn't it?

Unless I am overlooking something (which may very well be the case),
isn't the main issue here about trusting binaries -- regardless whether
they are sent as attachments, or as links to some download site? Just
thinking aloud here... perhaps the policy could be extended to encourage 
sharing information in plain text/html whenever possible?

Best, kyrah
