Its important to be able to upload .zip attachments to forum posts here so that we can post freely available CMTs to the forum. I'm not the first to ask for this, as d3vlabs pointed this out two days ago. Thanks!

Perhaps there is security concerns regarding archives that could contain malware/scripts/viruses? It would be nice to be able to upload archives though...

Let's hope we don't get any clowns trying to upload malware. Thanks Brad! :)
