VIRUS/MALAWARE ATTACK - Page 2

post #21 of 34

I've been here awhile and I have some threads that get responses and some that don't. I think a lot has to do with how busy the site is when you post something if its busy it kinda gets buried pretty quick. I'm here quite a bit and I used to be able to read every thread and now I find it almost impossible to the site has grown so much. I do try to look for threads that have had no responses and reply to them because I feel every thread deserves a reply but I'm sure I miss some. Keep posting and I'll keep trying to get to them all

figured I should chime in since I was one of the folks whose computer was getting attacked with every visit to SMF, and not on any of the other boards/websites I visit all day.

 

I started this past Monday popping on here for a few minutes, no virus attacks, and have spent more time on here as the week has progressed.  No weird things going on, and no attacks, computer and net running as it always has, and did when I stopped coming in because of the attacks.  I am guessing whatever frixes have been done behind the scenes are working,  thank you.  

 

I gotta say I was about to give up on SMF, and leave because of those virus attacks, and the folks chiming in saying it was my work computer, obviously not knowing what they were talking about.

Thanks to everyone for the reality check I didn't mean to whine. I think I am in a rut, you know, ABT's, pulled pork & wings all the time. I really do like the new format too!  I have learned so much here, thanks for your kindenss and support.

Its all good. Thats the thing I like about this forum is that everyone is like a big family. Its funny when my brother and I get together now and we talking about people on the forum and posts we have been reading. People wonder who are you talking about one of your buddies in town. I say no one of my buddies on the SMF I belong to. Like someone said you are all friends that I haven't had the chance to meet yet. I to am one of those guys who tries to look for posts that have little to no replies and try to chime in on their thread and give them any advice I can. Once I look through all the low posts then I start going through the rest of them. Everyone Keep on Smoking.

I too have posted with little or no response. It is just one of those things. Sometimes I post at weird hours since I work at night. I don't take it personal. I have been rather viciously attacked by a poster (who still posts here) for my use of ingredients. I love to experiment with my rubs. I really took it personal and blocked the poster. Mostly though there are a lot of nice folks here willing to be opened minded and united in the true cause SMOKE! The help and advice has been momentous. I have learned that at times I get many responses and other none. Just the way it goes. BTW I use Firefox and don't really get those malware attacks.Now if I could get the boss to do the same :-)

Ignore is a wonderful thing.. wish I had that in real life

 

There always has to be someone who thinks it's their way or the highway. I have said this from the beginning, make it fun for you and your family, make it taste good for you and your family, and keep it safe per the USDA and who am I to say anything about it.

No problem.. been there and did that

post #28 of 34

I would like to share my experiences.

 

I belong to multiple forums, 4 forums just for barbecuing

SMF, BBQ, The Q Joint, The Smoke Ring

 

Camping Forums

About 5 or so

 

Audio, ipod, Droid and computers

About another 8

 

Halloween and Christmas forums

Another 4

 

You get the point

 

Anyhow. when I started pop up camping I got really involved in the forum, I met a lot of people, we went to rally's and I learned a lifetime worth of knowledge in few years and in return shared my knowledge as well..

 

Well anyway there was an ongoing joke about switching to the dark side, (pop up to travel trailer), there were so many Darksiders, like myself, that liked the site so they decided to make a section for them, and it wasn’t the same.

I would post questions on threads and they were never answered, it was very clique' in fact there would be conversations going on between a few that were like a  phone call conversation, I gave it about 6 months then gave up.

 

A few years later I went back to the pop up forum and now the forum seems like a FAQ section to some website, with the same questions over and over.

I don’t know if the site just got too big or people got lazy and ignorant.

 

As far as the Darksiders part of the forum there was a definite clique' thing going on and if you didn’t fit in their clique', you were just ignored.

 

I have not seen this here and hope it never happens or I will move along as I have done in the past.

 

I can see if someone posted a direct question and there’s like 300 views and no replies, yeah that would p**s me off.

But I would not get upset if there were no replies to a general post… unless of course it had a Q-view.

 

Like the new format and no viruses

ROCK ON!

That says it all right there, Jeff!

 

I experiment with new seasoning ingredients, and new smoking methods, more in the last year than I ever have, and quite a few members have shown interest in these new ways of doing things. I find a few members posting about similar "experimental" methods or rubs, etc, and that's always getting attention on the forums...mostly good responses. I'm open minded and will try almost anything once...twice if I liked it.

 

The best part of all, is the fact that everyone is sharing these new ideas and bringing them out to the forums to give us all a chance to get off the couch and decide if we want to try it. Or, it may just spark some inspiration for a totally off-the-wall idea that you just can't wait to toss into the smoker.

 

Any time I discover something I've not tried before, it will be aired here, as we all do things just a little different than the next smoker does.

 

I'm proud to be a part (however small it may be) of this fine institution of learning and sharing the art of smoked foods. Site problems will happen, and, can and will always be resolved, thanks to all the hard work of the Admin and Mod team.

 

ROCK ON, SMF!!!

 

Eric

Damn! We almost ran him off!

 

 

JUST KIDDING..... Jim you can't leave, cause then I don't have anybody to blame when the wife asks why I had to buy my WSM... lol.

 

 

Yeah we all have some posts that seem to catch a lot of attention and get replys, and others that just get one or two. I think a lot of that has to do with how active this forum is. I can spend a few minutes reading at lunch and then by the time I get home those postst are burried 5 or 6 pages back... lol.

Try using Firefox and AdBlockPlus.

 

I haven't seen an ad in years.  Also, I use Linux, so these retarded afflictions wouldn't affect me even if I were to carelessly let them in.

 

"Despite" that.
 


 



Not everyone can control what browser they can use, let alone what plugins they can run.  I can run Firefox at work not to mention any OS I want. However, I run what our users have to use and use the OS our users have to use so I can stay in touch with what their experience is.

Almost anything fried in pig fat is bound to taste good
