What bothers me on line

Post  Superman on Fri Mar 26, 2010 5:36 pm

As this is an on line forum I figure to start out by listing what bothers me on line. They are listed in no particular order.

1 Spambots. They can seriously mess up any board or guest book if you don’t guard against them.

2 Blank subject lines. This is just laziness on the part of senders and wouldn’t be all that bad if it wasn’t usually the way viruses and mal ware were sent out through e-mail. When I’m in a bad mood I tend to automatically delete them no matter who the sender is listed as.

3 Spyware. It clogs up a computer slowing it down and tries to rat you out to people with no right to know your business.

4 Multiple forwards on e-mails. These are annoying. Especially the ones trying to convince you to send it to everyone on your mailing list. Those are almost always a scam sent out by spammers trying to harvest a set of viable e-mail address to send their crap to.

5 Scam letters. Put out by the scum of the earth to take advantage of the desperate and unwary. I’d tell you what I do with them but then you’d be an accomplice after the fact.

6 Threatening folks on line. While most of the threats are as bogus as the folks making them it is no way to act on line. It’s one of the things I fight against on line and I’m not picky about what I use to fight such scumbags either.

7 People using the Internet to hurt or molest children. I try to protect against this by providing safe harbors for small children on line and tracking down the scum that try stooping to this level. Any site that wants to join my mini web ring of kid safe sites is checked out top to bottom before being let in. My mini web ring is also constantly monitored and patrolled by a dedicated cadre of concerned parents and grandparents. So far 5 porn merchants have tried to sneak in. Not being big on self-incrimination I won’t say exactly what happened but there are 5 less porn merchants on line now.

This should do for a start in this section but I will likely be adding to it.
