Police won't do diddly squat. Nor do they have time to worry about this site.

As always, you have to learn to protect yourself online, even though that itself has limitations.

Don't ever share personal info online. Change passwords often and do full virus/malware scans often. It's a bit like driving a car though, the risk of crashing is always there, no matter how safe you drive.

Had a really good day yesterday, enjoyed the company of the people I was with. Was doing worthwhile work out in the bush.

Days like this are rare.

I know I don't feel safe when anyone can use my account at any time...call me paranoid.

One day I logged in and I was IN another users account!! I have a screenshot if you don't believe me.

((I am not a hacker either by far from it! Refer to the thread I started a thread about how I can barley use my "smart phone" lol))

It is my opinion the webmaster should take this site down until he updates the software. Otherwise you all are sitting ducks. But I could just be being overly cautious.
I've dealt with security myself (wrote software for it, but didn't finish it as i was overwhelmed by the number of "loopholes" or "vulnerabilities" concerning security). It's not readily remedied, because if you try doing that, then computers would be "unusable". You just have to "be sensible", and realize there is no "perfect security" - but that doesn't mean you're unsafe.

And i've had some "funny" stuff happen on spw, not much, but annoying enough. A hacker "poisoned the DNS servers" so that the latest page on "How are you feeling?" pointed to their scam site. I was unable to send PMs (to admin), but i sent an email to my web server about it, and it was fixed in a day or so. One thing that still annoys me is that since then, i have only a 50 message limit for my messages, when i used to have 250.

MollyBeGood, I would put it down to a one-off thing, and not worry about it.

Yes there are men out there who are selfish and shallow, but there are a lot of good men out there too. Just like some women ARE gold diggers, certainly not all, but some.

Yea, generalizing.. not cool man.
Okay, maybe that's too general a statement, but concerning what i meant by it, it's TRUE!. Maybe you're thinking that i'm meaning something else.
What i mean precisely, is that, concerning men being attracted to women, men are shallow - that is, the attraction is primarily physical (eg hair, breasts, behind, legs, etc). It's human nature!
I didn't mean to imply that men are shallow in the way you interpreted it as, or selfish, etc.

i don't want you to leave but i'd understand if you felt you needed to. you're going through a lot and you need to be pushed upward as everyone does unless they're weird but socialphobiaworld can help release that.

It's best to report any grievances with another SPW user to a Mod.
Posting complaints about other users in the Forums can end up getting messy.

I know... It's not so much wanting to leave. I just wish ah could come to this forum and express what I going through, like I used to. But words fail me at this point. Cuz everyday brings yet more petty, immature, family arguments that I just have to quietly endure. And it's been like that since August of this year. Because my older sister is a very hostile, unreasonable person who, like our mother and oldest sibling, doesn't react well to being told the truth, or that she's wrong.

While inside my head I'm going:

I didn't mention any names but i just felt so bad about what was done that i really wanted to have support. I don't know what I'm going to get tomorrow that i think i should stop and then i'd have to be really lonely again even though i try to be helpful for others who are lonely if they're truly kind. edit: ok n/vm

Mate, after reading your post's for some time now, it seems to me you're stuck on a merry go round. Overall nothing seems to change (your situation).

Sometimes I can come across a bit blunt and I apologize if I do that now, I certainly mean no offence. But what's the definition of madness? Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result?.. something like that.

I guess what I'm saying is it seem's your family is unwilling to change to make things better. It drive you bat sh!t crazy, it get's you down.. rinse and repeat.

Is it time to look at your options? I mean, if you're TRULY unhappy with how things are then you need to look at what you can do.
If you moved into your own apartment, perhaps things with your family might improve? It's amazing how cranky and inconsiderate people get when they are living together. It's nigh on impossible to get someone else to change. So are you flogging a dead horse?

If you aren't happy, you have to try and change things. Or understand that as you lay on your deathbed, all you will have to recall is unhappy memories of fighting with your family.

Nay need to say sorry, Pug. Yer 100% right in what ya said. So am no going tae throw tantrum n' start: "Who tha fu... How feckin' dare you!" :verangry:

Ah know I'm not happy, and things need to change. But it's no easy trying to reason with a bunch o' wimmin who only think aboot themselves, play the victim - make me oot tae be the bad yin all the time - and make them see that I'm the one who has put up with their petty, immature arguments.

Of course, they're unwilling to change for the better. Collectively, my mother and older sisters are too proud to admit when they're wrong. Cuz in their mind, they're never wrong. Ya can reason with folk like that.

Plus, my mother would rather living in denial, make excuses, be lazy and feel sorry for herself than change for the better. Complaining to me about how my sisters treat her like shit. And yet, she won't tolerate me calling her stupid or swearing at her.

The only option really is moving out and living on my own. My mother and sister are not gonnae really change until I'm around to manipulate or be the scapegoat for their problems. Cuz despite what they say, they sure don't think "very highly of me".

Plus, I've been validated and proven right in every observation I've made about my family, lately. But who care if I've point out how immature and petty they are since I was 18. But then that's how they've always been...

Don't worry though, things will be changing come next year. Cuz I'm done being fobbed off with "I'm sorry... I'll change. I promise".

There are many people out there with no insight, no ability to step back and take a look at their own behavior or look at themselves.

It's just not in them.

I genuinely think space is what you need. Your family probably thinks that you will never move out and become independent. Imagine the shock i their minds if you did.. lol

Oh aye! They definitely think that, that's why they constantly say they're concerned about me. And my Mum openly expressed her doubts about me living on my own when I brought up the topic of moving out last year, yet she recently acknowledged that I'm more willing to do stuff around the house than she is.

Well, they're in for a shock in a few months time, cuz next year, I'll be getting a place of my own. Not applied to my local council about it yet, but I've found out you can fill out their housing application form online so yer eligible for rehousing.

Worst..Christmas..Season..EVER! This is not hyperbole.

I posted 2 months ago about my family and I adopting a new puppy from the local animal shelter. Before she was picked up by the animal shelter she was found on the streets. She is a beautiful, highly intelligent border collie and I am the one that paid for her, I am the one that bought all of her toys, and I am the one that showers her with attention, food, and water every evening.

But no, all of my puppy's redeeming qualities get flushed down the toilet because...wait for it....she chews on everything!!! She has torn halfway through a wooden garage door and ripped apart a dusty, old exercise bench because of her need to chew.

She will go back to the shelter before the end of November and I am powerless to do anything because apparently I should be glad to be a 31 year old with a place to live because I cannot afford my own living quarters yet. None of my few friends or family members are willing to take her in, I have no counselor to meet anymore and obviously no girlfriend but I'm not concerned about my well-being, I'm concerned about my dog!

Pray that my collie finds a good home...this is going to hurt like f_cking hell soon whether she finds a new home or returns to a shelter.
