KEYWORDS: faq; scam; survey

Never heard of such a thing ...

I’d be all over
a) Microsoft Internet Essentials
b) Spybot - Search & Destroy
c) Malware Bytes

This sounds very suspicious -you may have a virus, trojan or worm.

Did you ask Jim Rob about it? If not, you might want to ping him. He might know something about what’s going on.

Something new to add to the FReeper lore and lexicon?

It must be the new Obamacuss virus, it gives you things you don't want or need, like obamacare

I just got a new phone yesterday and spent all day trying to rid it of the T-9 app, its some idiocratic feature that tries to spell things for you when you try to type a message

Actually T9 is pretty helpful when you’re using a phone that doesn’t have a keyboard. You have to get used to using it, but once you do, it makes typing messages a lot easier than straight text. I used to be against it, but I learned it and then bought an iPhone.

*shame*

Oh, and I’m not seeing any surveys. I’m thinking either your beeber isn’t set to stune or you’ve got a spork weasel stuck in your hugh/series circuit.

I’ve always wanted to do what you just did. To post a silly baseless vanity with an implied threat, but provide no links.

And then sit back and watch the replies roll in - all without me personally replying.

But I’ll have to wait till later.

I listen to B. Kilmeade on the radio via my computer at work from the Fox Radio site. Yesterday, or the day before, when I clicked the “play now” button I kept getting a pop-up to download i-tunes, or something like that.

So I hunted around for a radio station stream and did find one.

The next day I’d forgotten all this and the Fox Radio site was back to normal.

SO, I don’t know what way going on. But somehow I don’t think Apple had anything to do with it.

I swung by ehow.com just the other day, and was bombarded with Odumbo ads. WATF is up with that!?

This is FR lore. As a 5-year FReeper, you’re still a newbie. We’re not even through hazing you yet!

In my own defense I was mostly a lurker 4/5th of my time here.
Only recently have I been posting daily.

Otherwise, i’m ready for my hazing...I think.
