It Went Viral!

Hi all,
Just wanted to let you know, if you ever e-mail me on my e-mail address, it has changed. I had to cancel my Yahoo account because it was contaminated somehow by a virus that proceeded to send all my contacts a nasty little executable file. Luckily a couple of people warned me they received it, and I sent out a note to everybody telling them not to open it. Hopefully no one got infected with some rotten virus.

The new e-mail is available via the "email me" link to the right under my "About Me" profile description. So if you have my old one saved somewhere, just delete it and replace it with this one. If for whatever reason the link doesn't work, the new e-mail is: Mauigirl5224 at gmail.com.

Sorry if anyone got one of those phony e-mails!

Grrrrr.
I.just.don't.understand.someone.using.their.time.on.this.earth.to.create.computer.viruses!
Why oh why.
If you're that clever, do something good for humanity.
Heck, go create Facebook. Wait. That's been done.
OK--whatever. Just knock off tormenting we mere mortals.

Hmm--somehow blogger cut off my oh so clever comment.
It was meant to say:
...on.this.earth.to.create.computer.viruses.

Sigh.

I know, it's really annoying. They must be very talented -if only they used their skills for good instead of evil!

I hate it the way these can be manipulated with viruses and everything. People who do should be prosecuted to the full of the law but it is so rampant they get away with it.

I know, it happens all the time so it must be hard for anyone to follow up on these incidents.

Your not the only one. At least two other people I know have had their account hacked. Sorry it sucks.

I got an email from Allie at Watergate Summer asking me if I had sent her an email. I hadn't, so I don't know what is going on lately with the internet.

This much I do know.

Ever since I escalated my attacks on Sarah Palin following the Tucson massacre, I have received more and more angry (dare I say insane?) comments than at any time in the three previous years I started to blog.

Even the nutty Hillbots aren't as crazy as Palin's berserk army of supporters and I am left to conclude, much of this is their efforts to silence us.

Well, to them I say, bring it on because you won't win.

Tim, maybe there is some virus making the rounds. Christopher, they are indeed crazy and it's certainly possible they are targeting progressives with viruses. You never know. And I'm with you - let them bring it on, they won't win!

I had something steal my address list and send out spam. I think I picked it up on Facebook. I no longer do any of the apps on Facebook. I complained to hotmail, removed most of the addresses except for some old ones that are no longer valid, and changed my password.

I used my other e-mail account for awhile and because I no longer do anything other than status, comments and posts on Facebook, I haven't had a problem in quite some time.
