    Internet Safety

    I think it may be interresting to hear some ways people protect themselves online. Especially the wild and whacky ways.

    For example: in any webspace of mine, I use locks to make it so anyone who wants to view anything that would identify me, they have to have my approval (and I only approve people I know IRL)
    ... but what do I know?...

    i don't protect myself at all and nothing bad has ever happened to me, although if you remember going on a thing called habbo hotel it kinda warped my sensitive little mind

    they had a competition you phone up you get some virtual money and... you might win the competition

    i started phoning ever moment no one else was around or on the phone i ran up a bill of 50(that's $92.92 US) that was a lot of phone calls considering it costs 25p a call

    DOS attack is a Denial of Service attack. they just keep flooding your connection and make your connection and PC really slow (only make your PC slow if your FW doesnt block it). it sucks ass because you cant use your net for a few hrs

    just out of curiosity (I swear, I'm not a hacker). Some people come up with some unusual, but effective methods
    ... but what do I know?...

    I have one of the greatest and easy to use proptections. I have dialup. mNo one even bothers trying to do anything to me on dialup, and if they do, just disconnect and redial. I also really dont need any antivirus because I dont do much downloading here at my house, If I do any downloading its in town at public computers.

    Yeah but dialup takes ages to view websites and download stuff off the net compared to the faster internet connections.

    I don't use any protection on the internet as the software used for internet protection and firewall slow down the CPU when im doing something on the computer. Best option if I have a very hard to remove virus or adware on the computer: reformat the hard drive
