Why do these idiots have to spoil holidays, birthdays and just about everything we celebrate? They're the real terrorist threat in this country.
Why call them a terrorist threat? Why not? Instead of using bombs, guns and other weapons of war to destroy us, they're using trojans to take out our computers. And I want to tell these less than human cowards that to hundreds of thousands of people, their computer is the only thing they have. If it's wiped out because you're too stupid to think of the consequences, you're removing a big part of their lives; something they might not be in a financial position to replace. And that's akin to murder to me.
And to those of you who will surely write and tell me I'm being overly dramatic, I have friends in all walks of life. Some of them have beat up computers held together with chewing gum. But they're proud to have one because their children use it for homework, games and so on. If they lost their computers, it would be a terrible hardship. So I ask you, don't terrorists try to take everything we have of value? While computers might not be everything, they serve an important purpose in our lives.
Warning to all: if you receive this card "2006Greetings.com" just delete it. I was on one of my Internet sites a moment ago, hadn't even opened my mail, and my email scanner flashed a warning on my screen about a trojan in my email in a card. This card was sent by some dope out there with nothing better to do than spoil people's holidays by taking out their computer. In other words, rendering it disabled.
I've noticed that lately these idiots with time on their hands have been sending emails with the names of various Internet greeting card companies as their header. I even opened one--the email, not the card-- thinking it was from a friend. It was from an anonymous friend. Yeah, right. My friends don't send anonymous email so I closed and deleted it. Later I discovered from reading a file on Internet warnings that it contained a Trojan. To me it's a shame that these idiots have to spoil the joy of sending cards to one another.
I'm using the terms dopes and idiots because I'm being polite. I'm stifling what I'd rather say.
