Enter At Your Own Risk


the internet is a dangerous world
where one can be easily duped.
all who venture into its domain
are not a quality group.

whatever one says in cyber-world
is not easily verified
predators linger behind the scenes
yet, not identified.

motives are hidden behind keyed words
that only the speaker can see...
the naive and trusting, so vulnerable
a predator's sweet repartee.

the internet is a dangerous world
it behooves all who venture within
to enter with caution at your own risk
here truth is so easy to spin.

It is worse than we think. I just recently moved and prior to this I was chatting to someone on one of those dating sites. With only her first name and a picture from the site I was able to find her full name. Where she went to highschool, what her job was. A club she belonged too. Now, with that information if I was a crazed person what could I do?

It took me a long time to do anything on the internet. Thank God for the Antivirus programs which identify threats and monitor for potential viruses. But still, you have to be discreet what lies before the eyes.

Scary thought of having no control over ones privacy, but hey, we all go there don't we? Why?

Like a Cobra coiled to strike, we are its prey, unless we are eternally vigilant. A useful, beautifully worded, reminder.

attemptedhumour, i truly think it is worse than most of us even realize...exactly like a "cobra coiled to strike" the most innocent and unsuspecting who can easily fall prey to the dangerous minds that use the internet to their own devices! many thanks for the read and thoughtful comment!

Power, technology can be a dangerous thing, the Internet is alive and can eat you up if you let it. It's vices are real, one can have practically anything they desire by simply typing in a word in search and VOILA you have what your looking for. So beware tread very carefully young and old alike. Thank you for the reminder.
