Spybot program to remove spyware

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by FlowStill, Jul 10, 2003.


  1. Just thought I'd share this with you all. It's a great program that checks for spyware on your computer and then fixes the problem. You can search for it, or download it here http://files.vollversion.de/spybotsd12.exe

    I haven't seen that one. I use AdAware though. It works pretty nicely

    Given this guy's single other post, and it's clueless and inflammatory nature, I'd be wary of running that program if I were you.

    I can vouch for him, he's a trustworthy fellow, and definitely not malicious in his intentions.

    ..and the SpyBot is good stuff.
     
  8. First off, let me say that what I posted about formaldehyde, was information given to me from a person that I personally believe to be very trustworthy. It was in no way intended to be conclusive. I merely stated what I heard and trustingly believed through word of mouth. I admit I probably should have done research, but to tell you the truth, I wasn't in the mood and I didn't think that to speak my belief with a few spelling errors would make my statement have a "clueless and inflammatory nature"... maybe I'm just one of those people that don't know binary. Keep the peace.

    Moods are a thing for cattle and loveplay!
    :rolleyes: sorry couldn't resist the quote.

    Seriously though - I don't understand exactly what people think they're accomplishing when they post something like this. So - you feel you should have done something, but you weren't in the mood - so is that an excuse? Which means you shouldn't have done it? What part of "clueless" doesn't fit this behavior? What part of "inflammatory" doesn't apply to telling everyone that the diet soda they drink is slowly killing them (in a new way)?

    I appreciate that you heard this info from someone you trust. The problem is with these things that everybody hears it from someone they trust, and then doesn't think it through or investigate for themselves.

    My point about the spelling was not to berate your typing skills - you spelled it the same both times - or your spelling skills. I would assume, on the other hand, that somebody posting as drastic information as that would have actually bothered to have some evidence of the facts in front of them, in which case the correct spelling would have been readily available. But, you had nothing (I guess you could've gone to the original email - but these things tend to be full of misspellings anyway! imagine that).

    How exactly is

    not "conclusive"?
     
  11. I still personally believe that aspartame does turn into formaldehyde. If there is something I believe in, I will address it as if I believe in it. This does not mean it is conclusive, I did say that you should do your own research at the end of the post, which leaves an opening for other possibilities. Now leave me to my personal beliefs and stop trying to belittle them. I understand you don't agree with them and that's fine, but when you take my beliefs and call them "clueless" or "inflammatory" it is rude. Another thing, the person who told me about aspartame didn't tell me through e-mail, he told me through speaking. This man who I trust is a very informative person who is not only very smart, but also a person who does his research religiously. If we can't trust a person through a true conversation, we will be a sad and nervous people. None-the-less, you have inspired me to do my own personal experiment on aspartame and if I am still coming to talkbass by the time I finish, I will tell you the results. Peace.

    It was your behavior that I was calling clueless and inflammatory.

    Main Entry: clue·less
    Pronunciation: 'klü-l&s
    Function: adjective
    Date: 1862
    1 : providing no clue
    2 : completely or hopelessly bewildered, unaware, ignorant, or foolish

    Main Entry: in·flam·ma·to·ry
    Pronunciation: in-'fla-m&-"tOr-E, -"tor-
    Function: adjective
    Date: circa 1711
    1 : tending to excite anger, disorder, or tumult : SEDITIOUS

    If you think I'm rude for pointing this out, hey, there are worse things in life.

    Cluelessness is common and forgiveable, and if you need to stir up some excitement, then well it's necessary. It's the combination of the two that is nasty (and will get me all riled up).

    You can believe whatever you want. When you start pushing those beliefs as fact, you can bet if you don't have anything to back them up people will get "rude" about it.
     
  13. You have a point, but I feel that it is better to provide that information then not. My reasononing is that, if it happens to be true, it could save lives. If it's not true, sorry for making you feel bad about drinking your crisp, tasty diet soda... a report of a headache after you stop using it, I'd say keep it up. I'm sure your body is going through no bad effects if headaches are involved... I don't know, that information from www.snopes2.com wasn't very convincing. It may not harm you to badly at first, but if you are like some people I know, who drink it everyday, through time, as long as it is true that aspartame turns into formaldehyde at 87 degrees, it will. My proof as of now, is all these reports of people getting headaches after they stop drinking it. A headache of the masses is strange because usually a headache is an individual problem. If we can pinpoint the exact reason as to why so many people are getting the headaches, what should we do, STOP USING IT! Clueless, foolish, ignorant... I'll tell you what is foolish and ignorant, people who can't get a clue from their own bodies reactions. If you are getting headaches from something, it doesn't mean you should get an aspirin, STOP USING WHATEVER IS GIVING YOU A HEADACHE! I'm sick and tired our country feeding us lies and slowly killing us to feed their own power. Isn't it obvious; give the population food that will cause health problems. Where does the unhealthy citizen go next, oh, our corrupt money hungry doctors who prescribe them more sh*t that won't cure them, only hold back the disease. Which means in order to keep the disease from coming back you need to keep paying for your prescription. If only we could realize that what we really need is a proper education on what we should be consuming in order to not become unnaturally ill. I believe our ideas of ignorance are different, but truthfully I believe mine is more important. Last post I'm sending towards this issue. Feel free to reply.

    I never said anything about diet soda giving me headaches.

    You have some pretty serious issues. I hope you get that all sorted out sometime.
