you don't have to give every detail of yourself to the forum. admit what you want or make up a name.
i know this, as some of the other members. some members just dont know what they are doing. age has got nothing to do with it. they are just to trusting. just saying.
age has a lot to do with it !!!!!. young folks have no freaking idea what the world is like today with all these hackers and scammers out there !!!!. until they have been down that road ?, all they are doing is inviting these bad folks into their world. if members are stupid enough to post their emails ?, real names ?, whatever ?, then they will get this chance to see the REAL WORLD !..LOL. p.s. I don't really want to call members stupid ?, because they are just not informed is all ?!. maybe we need to make some changes to the site that keeps all new members from using any emails, or real names in their screen names ??. just a thought :-).
I don't think its age, as there are countless older folks that have very little computer/internet skills, and many grew up ina time when things like using a name was SAFE, and the proper way to do things
so, when you get more modern younger kids, and such that , honestly many have way more computer/internet skills than most folks 2-3-4-5 times there age, due to there growing up in things that are common place for them,
I know countless people that still do not have or ever used computer and NONE are kids! 4-5-6 yr olds are using modern computers and like things and get to see and adapt as new tech comes out, more than older folks IMO< as many retired folks, learn one thing and thats all they WANT to learn, and not in the faster growing side of this stuff, I know I fall into this some what, as I don't are about all the new tech very much to want to learn
BUT I am aware of all the scammers and many of the like problems out there.
I personally think there should be better laws about that side of the world wide web
they should have fines and jail times set VERY high as a way to try and protect users better, as face it, this world wide web makes a LOT of money for countless business's
scammers taking away some if that, should face stricter punishments, and THEN maybe there would be less of it, fear is IMO what stops most people from doing things!
I don' t care what anyone says, it WORKS
two most powerful motivators IMO are FEAR and MONEY, make them fear the punishments and Fine the crap out of them, and MAYBE they will slow down
as is, its a joke, and doesn't even seem IMO that anyone really is even trying to stop them
like come on, with all these spam phone calls, the law has been able to track phone calls since there were phones, and now in a modern world they want us to say they cannot??
phone company's are making money selling these people using there services, and as such, they are in NO hurry to loose there money! IMO! they ain't making phone calls without the use of some phone service??
