Got you to sign in, didn't it?

Me too. Seems like every idiot and their retarded little brother wants in on this hacking business, I don't go a single day without at least ten new scams in at least one of my inboxes.

I was close to clicking that link, but experiences from deviantART have taught me better and I rushed to see if anyone else got the same, now I have confirmation, and just as well since we just installed a new Anti-virus on this comp yesterday that told us our computer was clean, how ironic XD.




Why is delivering things by car called "shipment", while delivering things by ship is called "cargo"?

Haha, the only one I know who hasn't gotten one is Voyager. At least he told me so.
I've gotten one, too, but as I'm much too lazy to check links that are being sent in PMs (and because the text seemed rather familiar to other spam mails I get each day), I refrained from clicking. Ironic how some PM that was sent at 3am my time (when my computer was turned off) wants to tell me that I have viruses lol. Hmm, time to swing the banhammer, I guess....

Keep in mind, most of these sorts of viruses are easily removed. There's a plethora of tools available for free. Lifehacker.com has some great tips, and at the very least you can try Symantec's free tools. There's always an option.

Even though it's irrelevant to the topic, I like your sig and its colour blending between magenta and a violet-blue. biggrin.gif

I'm one of the few who indeed did NOT get said spam PM. I guess it tried nailing a whole bunch of the population?

Got one as well. (and you're right, it did make me come here! It's both good AND bad wink.gif)

Anyway, I've come to learn that ANY odd link with your username in it (besides ones you may be expecting) are always suspicious to me. Too many virus run-in's have made me overly cautious!

Thank you smile.gif

I got the one from yesterday as well :X Smiling Demon, maybe you should send a pm to Bash, he's dealt with this sort of thing before and may be able to give you some tips on how to stop the wee buggers. tongue.gif
