Ten Net Commandments

Friday, September 28th, 2007 by | Filed Under: Uncategorized

Can you tell me what the Ten Net Commandments are?

Here’s a fun one for you!

Okay, I admit it! No one really asked today’s question, but I saw this on our message board the other day and I just had to include it in today’s newsletter. It may seem like a little joke to you, but all the information you’re going to get today is something we all really should pay attention to. So, what am I going on and on about? Well, posted on our message board by “doldgeek” was a thread called “The Ten Net Commandments.” They are just ten Internet “laws” we all should abide by on a regular basis. Let’s see what they are, shall we?!

1.) Thou shalt not buy merchandise found in pop up ads or spam.

2.) Thou shalt not post thy e-mail address, phone number, address or social security number on the Internet, nor shalt thou post anyone else’s.

3.) Thou shalt not forget to update thy Windows every second Tuesday.

4.) Thou shalt not connect to the Internet without installing an antivirus, nor shalt thou begin a scan without checking for updates.

5.) Thou shalt not connect to the Internet without installing a firewall.

6.) Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s credit card number, nor his bank routing number, nor his social security number.

7.) Thou shalt not enter thy credit card number without seeing the tiny padlock icon on thy status bar.

8.) Thou shalt not reply to the e-mail from the Nigerian banker.

9.) Thou shalt not forward chain letters to thy friends and family.

10.) Thou shalt not use “password” as thy password, nor thy birthday, nor thy childrens’ names.

Aren’t those great?! I mean, they all make a lot of sense and if you think about it, they are some general rules we can all follow when it comes to keeping ourselves and our computers safe. Also, in case you were wondering, this list was put together by Mr. Mike Healan, who works for Spywareinfo. I just thought this was something all of you who do not use our message board on a regular basis would like to see. I hope you enjoyed it!

Now, go on and make sure you’re staying on track with the Ten Net Commandments!
