    I think you are right. The old adage of 'if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is' still works in the digital age.

    Thanks for your answer.

    It is true for some of us. However, I think there is a portion of the population who continue to fall for them. Thanks for your input.

    There are so many stories how people work part time on the internet and earn tons of money. Then for just $25 they will share their secret with us. WoW, where do I sign up? LOL Great to hear from you.

    When people speak socially with friends, it seems to matter less. When they try to express themselves by writing their education or lack of it shows through. There is a generation that is technically advanced and socially inept, I fear.

    Alas I don't know the commercial you are referring to. It's true, "Don't believe everything you read." Thanks

    Never have we had so much information available to us and yet many people don't use the internet for that, they use it to chat. Thanks for your answer.

    Oh goodness, I hope not this question. They feel any exposure is better than none I suppose. Those that are well off, normally are the ones who have struggled, and worked for it. Thanks for your response.

    Yes we should, but the carrot of easy money is always appealing to some. Thanks for your answer.
