I posted a comment under the "what was the name of your first pet," that said, "congratulations, you just gave information to scammers."

The point I was making is that the question that was asked is also very much a common security question. If you think things like your address, your school mascot, your mother's maiden name, social security number, etc are secure....you're naive.

I've seen too many people get conned, have their identity stolen, and they wonder why. I was just trying to make the point that you HAVE TO BE CAREFUL even when you give out seemingly harmless info.

I wasn't trying to say that anyone here was trying to engage in identity theft. If that's what it was taken as being, I'm sorry. That wasn't my intention.

I've been banned so many times it's laughable. (NT)Unplug your router for five minutes, plug it back in, and voila... you're back!Wednesday, July 31, 07:09:56pm
I thnk you got banned because you called everyone who answereed the questoinaire a derogatory name. (NT)I don't think name-calling is a mature way to get any point across, do you?Wednesday, July 31, 08:47:02pm
