Beware Blogger, I'm a thief!

Little anecdote I thought might be worth a mention:
I have just recently invested in a laptop, and yesterday afternoon spent an interesting couple of hours establishing a wireless connection to my existing modem. At a certain point I decided to test the connection by putting in the address of this blog. After a few minutes dithering (one might suppose) I was presented with a message from the laptop's pre-installed anti-virus software apologising for the fact that they had decided not to open the requested page as it would seem that the sole purpose of picsandpoems.blogspot.com is to steal traffic from some outfit calling itself blogger.com.

Thanks for the post, Dave. It makes me realize that the internet is the one place where lots of traffic is actually considered a good thing! Next time I'm in gridlock, I'll roll down my window and shout to the car next to me, "Hey! How about all this great traffic?! Think we could sell some of it on the Internet?

Sigh. And so this is how it begins.
Laughing. Kind of. Rarely a day passes without some sort of 'humor' dispensed by the 'net foundation.

That's a good one-- the security features really are a good thing overall, but until you tame them down they can come up with some strange ideas.
