will take you to an item I have posted on “Your Freedom”. Your support would be welcomed. By the way, the link setup doesn’t seem to be working properly, or I haven’t sussed it out, maybe, so Please copy and paste in your web browser to reach it, until someone educates me…

A word of warning…

If you moderate comments made on your blogs, beware of accepting comments from “strangers”, unless you have anti-malware software already installed. Fortunately I do, which prevented what looked like an innocent enough, although gushing commentary, on one of my few blogs. He/she/it provided unusually full detail – e-mail address, URL, and so on. Had I clicked on any of the links it would have introduced malware into my p.c.
MY anti-malware software recognized the URL address as potentially dangerous, and warned me, when I checked it out. I suppose “strangers” in this context mean non-definitelynotmyt gang members!

The Virtual Mob spreading spite online…

I am conscious that many of us are not necessarily readers of the DT, so provide this link to an article in today’s DT. It attempts to explain the modern phenomenon of bloggers leaving their natural courtesy and manners – if they ever had any – behind them, when they take to the keyboard. This could so easily have referred to any of the many puerile flame wars which turned MyT into a bearpit. (No offence intended, Bearsy!)
