This is another rant about spam, just looking at the log files on my mail server;  I was wondering do morons that own computers actually have a clue about the device they use?

I would think not, the sheer volume of bullshit spam that comes from home user machines is incredible, its mind blowing actually. While not completely the users fault, the blame ends up being Microsoft and their insecure system, somewhat. Let’s face it even if Joe Sixpack actually used a flavor of Linux, he would still get the email giving him step by step instructions how to use SUDO and install software that will give control of his machine to spammers.

So while I like to blame the OS, which is partly at fault, we have to put the blame where is lies, moron that go to Wal-Mart and buy cheap ass PCs to get on the line, ya know the interweb, and send some mail in the tubes.

Look if you own a computer be a good citizen of the internet and run a full virus scan of your machine, then run a adware remover.  Look I think computers should have idiot lights installed like cars do, “Time to change your oil” it could be applied as “Time to run your virus scan”

All I’m saying is if you take the basic steps to keep your car’s engine from seizing why not do the same with your computer? This wasn’t a very large problem back in the day because computers cost many thousands of dollars and the people that bought them took care of them. Now that you can get a computer for less than half a week’s salary for most people they have become disposable. Can you picture the chaos that would occur if brand new cars cost half a week’s salary?

Something to say?
