Peter,

Calm down young man, the original post was about folks falling for the wiles of 
firms using unsuspecting methods to mine info. about us.

I chimed in saying my wife easily would fall for this, unknowingly, but she 
would…I didn’t want to kick her in the chins without mentioning that her lack 
of tech skills in any way reflected on her other abilities….it was my way of 
redeeming my revealing her gullibility.  

The ONLY Christian post was by myself through what I thought was a direct email 
from Jonathan, it wasn’t meant for the group and I apologized…

So, this thread WAS about Computers, a warning for us to be diligent over HOW 
information is unsuspectingly drawn from us, it does fit our group, only you 
have wanted to make it an issue..

Take a deep breath, learn to favor your fellow members, maybe each post won’t 
be directly related to the Mac but most all are related to our world of 
Tech…we’ll all feel better about each other.

John
