    Can't tell Guest

    Hello :)

    Just wondering... What is your homepage when opening your web browser ?

    [I expect a lot of users to tell us it's www.wilderssecurity.com ;)]

    Mine is www.pcflank.com

    The one on my office's computer is www.google.com

    Feel free to illustrate with snapshots...

    Cheers

    Why do I feel you are hoping to see/find something you don't need to know??

    Even if that is the case, there isn't much to be found out on my screen shot. except my browser is firefox and my home page is my yahoo and a few links I have.

    Understood BigC.

    But I don't understand...if this person wants to "socialize" or whatever the reasons of that question, why not just simply post this as a member, instead
    of an anonymous guest name.....

    Some people just jump back and forth between forums posting as a guest, I guess they just fell more comfortable doing it that way. But I think they would probably have more fun if they knew the other posters and was a registered member them selfs so we would be more at ease with their post's.

    yes, I sympathize with someone wanting to be more comfortable and post as guests ~ Nothing wrong with that.


    But I get a "funny" feeling, when someone, anonymously, asks certain questions, etc, etc.....
    I know you follow me. :) ;)

    But that's alright....if you guys feel comfortable doing so....



    (Maybe I'm having a "funky" day and react a bit more paranoid than usual )

    Can't tell Guest

    I explained that in a previous post on the Polls forum previously.

    I'm at work right now, not home. I don't want my employers or colleagues to use my log in or pass, nor do I want to have them track my 300 + posts at Wilders as a registered user. Don't wanna be anonymous toward you, but toward them.

    I don't appreciate the suspicious remarks I read in Nat68's and Lurekerella's previous posts. I can understand surprise. I can't accept insults.

    Bigc, thanks for your understanding and experience.

    Feeling quiet hurt at the time... Maybe I'll just draw back from the forums for a while.

    Regards... :(

    Well dear Can't tell,

    I can't tell either who you are and if you have a member account here already if you don't say so ~ please try to understand. ;)

    And sorry..never saw your posts where you explained...:doubt:

    I Never want to insult anyone. If I have unintentionally, I apologize.
    But it won't change my mind about people I don't recognize, asking particular questions.

    Sorry if you're hurt. Please read this, if you haven't already, thanks. :)

    I do not see anything wrong in posting anonymously as a guest. If the guests ask for help just help them. But if the guests post any inappropriate content and go against our TOS then the appropriate action should be taken against that specific guest who posted the inappropriate content.
    Let's just be polite and friendly to those people who post as anonymous guests here. Ignore any rude or unfriendly guests, don't argue back with them or you may end up starting World War 3.

    This thread might be going a little off-topic...

    Hello everybody ;)

    Let me see if I get it right from some of the posts in this thread.

    When we all share the kind of desktop we have on our respective machines (as has been done in another thread a few months back), none would call that suspicious or a dangerous threat to our privacy or integrity, right?

    But when someone just wants to share some of the Default Opening Pages we enjoy, it has to be regarded as some kind of 'spying' or potential agression ?!.... Is that it, Lurkerella?

    When we all talk about the browsers we use, the firewalls we test, the Proxies we choose, the antiVirus softs we consider buying, there's nothing wrong with that, but when a non-registered person (non logged in, perhaps) is keen to some relax or pleasant discussion, there's suddenly somebody coming along just to hack him down - not with scans or viruses or worms, but with words...

    Nat68, Lurker, just tell me - what could be dangerous in knowing one opens at cnn.com or Microsoft.com or radio-canada?

    I feel ashamed.

    But this guy may not be a registered user, right? Well, as far as I know, WildersSecurity allows for guests to post and ask questions and give advice - in a word, to participate. But I guess some people just don't share that philosophy. Maybe because non registered might be dangerous, is that it? Just because they're strangers, in a sense...
    Is that what Nat68 and Lurker' wanted to say - that strangers are not allowed? Do you two believe that a non-registered is dangerous, while registered are non-dangerous just because they have chosen a pseudo and given an email-adress where one may perhaps contact them ?

    No, I really don't.

    I feel ashamed...

    Can't tell, I'd like you to accept my apologies for some of my fellow registered members's unkind and narrow-minded comments... Please, don't focus on that...

    Sorry.

    BTW, my home page is http://www.grc.com/default.htm
    Well - Nat68 and Lurkerella - I am sure I'm NOT gonna get hacked because I revealed this highly sensitive information...

    Can't tell - keep posting, pal. I enjoy your posts.

    I connect into my Forum Mailbox so I can see if there is anything I need to do urgently.
