I'm puzzled if Cliff indeed came to the conclusion that worms
are uniformly useless. In fact, I'd been thinking recently of
some worms one might use to gather information about the
performance, topology and extent of the dynamic and growing
Internet. XEROX PARC put some worms to good computational
use in a distributed environment.

If Cliff is on the list, perhaps he could take time to clarify
the view reported?
