[liberationtech] Revised Liberationtech Mailing List Guidelines

as i have suggested previously, a person could upload the doc file to Google doc and select the option of sharing the link publicly, this would allow people to access your document online. another method which has already been stated before is to just copy and paste the content on the email indicating the starting point of the document and the ending point. also if you are worried about virus from google doc i have just done a search and found out that google doc has an internal mechanism for scanning virus from document that are being shared. here is more information on that in this page under the subtitle security, 
well i hope this help and if anyone has any information concerning the security of accessing document using Google doc i hope they can share it with us. i also agree with kyrah there is no point in using drop box as it would be as if we are downloading a document into out system there is no difference between a downloading a file from drop box and a downloading a file from a email attachments.
