DryCreek They gamble on people feeling guilty and paying out of fear.
I agree with DryCreek.
The password that got hacked on one of my accounts now has a Bio-Hazard symbol and I can't access the site so I assume the hackers took over the whole site. I haven't used that site in 10 years and I am guessing the site owner didn't have a strong password.
Reusing passwords is a really bad idea. Using simple passwords is also a really bad idea. Trying to remember a ton of complex, unique passwords is also a really bad idea.
A good idea... use a password safe like 1Password, SplashID, etc. to store your passwords securely. The better ones have browser plug-ins that will automatically paste in the site’s password for you once you enter the code to unlock the password safe. And they will sync between your laptop, phone, tablet, etc. - because losing this file makes for a Really Bad Day.
If you do this, then it makes a lot of sense to use super-strong, random passwords, like 20 characters long. You’re just copy & pasting, so make it count! And no reason not to make every site it’s own password.
Then, the only passwords you need to remember are the ones to unlock the password program, your laptop, and your phone. You can remember 3 really good passwords, like 1YellowBird&Snuffleupagus!

I run this program before and after every Internet session. Why so often? It supposedly wipes out the tracking cookies(?) websites place on your computer and more important to me, websites that you never thought had the privilege of tracking you.
I do not have a Facebook, twitter, or Amazon accounts but they all show up as tracking agencies. I do not use Microsoft Explorer but they track me.
Just using the CCleaner in a basic mode claims to remove the trackers but they are back almost every time I start a new Internet session.
It is probably a long redundant site then. I hope I am blackmail proof as I really do not give a stuff what people think of me. It is the old saying, dog bites man is not news, man bites dog is. Midfle aged guy jerks off to internet porn, yawn.
This the "Shoutbox" -- basically a site-wide, group chat. (It's only visible to members.)
petrushka: I've no idea what it is with the toilet paper hoarding. I walked out of a supermarket yesterday and saw a woman with the jumbo sized trolley and some 4x 18 roll packs of toilet paper. Nuts. Completely nuts. Incidentally, a bidet is definitely the way to go

petrushka: One of my favourite quotes for the last 30 years: "don't ever look a sheep in the eyes, the intellectual vacuum may suck your brains out". Well, let's all drink to the sheeple! (besides, alcohol is a good disinfectant).

worksforme2: Hey tamara68, there is a covid19 positive cat in Belgium, watch out for it.
Mar 30, 2020 14:05:56 GMT -5
tamara68: @worksforme I think I have to be more careful for all infected people. Most likely I already have Covid19
Apr 1, 2020 3:29:42 GMT -5
worksforme2: tamara68.....it's been a couple weeks since you posted you may have the covid19 virus. hopefully you are feeling better and are on your way to renewed health
Apr 11, 2020 5:31:38 GMT -5
tamara68: @worksforme thanks, yes I am feeling better. How is it in the USA?
Apr 14, 2020 1:57:26 GMT -5
worksforme2: some better and some worse,..virus seems to be slowing down, but people are beginning to refuse to stay inside,...worst thing I see is Biden leading in the election poles,...but that could be fake news

mirrororchid: Politics? Is that what we want to happen here?
Apr 21, 2020 6:21:24 GMT -5
petrushka: Certainly not American style politics. Toxic echo chambers.
Apr 23, 2020 16:21:52 GMT -5
petrushka: However, I feel that sexual politics, including political moves that impact the relationships between gender (misogynist, misandrist, etc) definitely deserve room in this context.

fred: just calculated that i've spent somewhere near 19,000 days (& nights) as a "rejectee".AND that allows for 2,000+ days (& nights) on business travel apart from her. i've chosen to "stay" .....would never do that again, and can't as you see doing the math
May 15, 2020 18:01:15 GMT -5
worksforme2: 19000 days and nights,....damn dude, that's 52 yrs.

fred: you're a little short works - was thinking this AM, there has NEVER been a day when she indicated desire for me physically (other than for heavy lifting or finance)........LOL...........earlier, i had enough libido for both of us, now i'm left with guilt
Jun 20, 2020 13:11:12 GMT -5
fred: over imposing myself on her rather than simply leaving .....DAMN LOVE ANYWAY !

mesulina: update everyone, still has not happened. I have now come to accept that I will live with out. It is just different now.

worksforme2: Sorry mesulina,... but on the positive side you did stock up on toys a short time back,..now might be the time to go for the gusto
