It started innocently enough: Someone has liked your post!
When I clicked the link,
the address was missing one letter:
Proofreader Me, thinking it was a mistake,
typed what I thought was the corrected address.
My laptop exploded with flashing blue screens
telling me that it was locked now,
and only their ‘expert’ could help me retrieve my data again.
Needless to say, after coloring the air blue with a few choice phrases,
(and an apology to Artist for them!)
I went about reclaiming my laptop, from where I’m posting!
After I’d had time to think,
it made me a little sad.
I always like to give the person
the benefit of the doubt,
and this person may not know
his site had been corrupted.
But I also would not be surprised
if he was part of the spidery web
of wanna-be hackers
wasting their God-given gifts in this way.
But if this causes one reader
to be alert for this image, this WP address,
and this ‘trick’, then it is worth it.
All the best to all of us
who strive for honest, connected communication.
