who can understand the computer.

trouble is, some do, and how to abuse it.

on one of the game board threads here, I posted cities and their country, and now i'm getting all kinds of ads for travel to these places. even off spark.

and outside of this site as well, some friends emailed me photos. there were supposed to be 5, but only one was 'readable'; I went through it like a slide show-- and you won't believe it, but 'excerpts' from spark turned up on them, goodies, buttons and such. and on much more than just 5 slides, more like 20.

    Adblock plus has been a blessing for me. I don't see nearly as many ads as before I installed it.

    Highly recommended!

    I hate that too, but I figure if they are watching me through a web-cam I am retaliating by using my computer before I do my hair. That is enough to scare anyone!

    Another reason to say that cookies of all sorts can be bad for you!

    I even dreamt once that my living room was being filmed from my laptop, and sent who knows where!

    Yes, agreed. Those tracking cookies are the devil incarnate!

    Rosie - I've had similar things happen. Every time I do a search on Google, Bing, Ebay, etc. . . what I've searched for shows up on SP as an ad. There's no hiding from Big Brother anymore. It's scary. I figure someone is taking pictures of me, or tracking me on the PC, somewhere even as I write this . . . Of course it's even scarier that an email sent you by a friend can be altered!
    N, L&L
