Um, yes.  With nauseating repetition.  

I'd suggest that if you're unsure whether you're asking an intelligent 
question or not, particularly about a new (to you) issue, the first place
to look is the email list archives.  Common problems are going to show up
there in droves.  In the case of this particular issue, you would see the 
entire debate on this issue over just the past two days.  Given Norton's 
obvious error, it looks like we'll be seeing lots of repeated email queries
to this list about this issue. :-(

Time for me to set up a new email filter! ;-)
