Yes, please! I forbid attachments to my lists because I'm sick of dealing
with unopenable attachments, plus I always advise my users to never open an
attachment they didn't request because it could contain a virus. And a lot
of users are very rude or ignorant about sending giant attachments (we
don't all have cable modems), or send garbled attachments that nobody can
make any sense out of. And who do they ask for help? Me, of course. I have
to periodically go through my inboxes and clear out all the unsolicited
attachments that I have no intention of ever reading.

As far as I'm concerned, attachments are spam.
