You spend more time on MSN Messenger than ANYTHING else (Download Squad)

Nov 9th 2009 1:19PM The only reason I use MSN (Live) is that my boyfriend uses it at work, to connect the IT in different offices; it's the only program they're officially "allowed" to use because it has inter-office functionality built in.

ZZOMG, Twitter Porn Names is a phishing attack (Download Squad)

May 12th 2009 6:35PM Wow. Like I said: the only thing that posting this game on Twitter has does is reveal the ignorance of the common internet user. I mean--I have been using the internet for 15ish years, and I've never once used a pet's name, street name, mother's maiden name (not the REAL one; just one I've come up with to always use), or any other information that ANYONE other than close family & my boyfriend would ever know. So, I guess that this is good for you all--now you know not to do that. And of course, if you do, don't broadcast it. Hehe.

May 12th 2009 6:25PM Marc, I don't want to be rude but you're the one that didn't read it correctly. He wrote, "...the formula provided to create your name just happens to match some very common security questions to help people reset their passwords." He never stated that it's what Twitter uses; and it's not.

May 12th 2009 5:11PM What? This has been around the internet for YEARS. Take your first pet + the street you grew up on and you have a funny "porn name." (Mine is Kitty Cat Loyola. ;) Someone on Twitter didn't come up with this any more than they came up with the internet itself. The teacher's last name came into play when someone thought they were being clever by changing the well-known, long-time rule of pet + street in an effort to make it more vague (and much less funny; a teacher's last name is, y'know, a real last name and misses the point of the 'game' entirely) for scammers.

WHO ON EARTH uses their first pet's name and street anywhere in conjunction with their password?! Seriously - I think all this becoming a trend on Twitter has done is expose how stupid people really are when it comes to the internet in two ways: they are apparently using pet names and street names in their passwords or password retrievals; and they think anything innocent and fun is an attack from so-called phishers and scam artists.
