Hey guys, it’s Cipher, and I’d like to take a moment to talk about internet security. It used to be that sharing your name and face on the internet was taboo. That, the internet is full of nothing but forty year old men out to take advantage of innocent thirteen year old girls. But…. There has to be thirteen year old girls on the internet to begin with, so obviously not everyone is a forty year old man. And by that, you have to believe that at least half the people on the internet is effectively a thirteen year old girl. Okay, let’s clarify.

Not everyone online is evil, and not everyone wants to steal your soul. In fact, I don’t believe I’ve met a single creep online. Ever. Knowledge is the best protection out there, and so long as you an recognize what is a threat and what isn’t, you’re fine. Scammers love to believe that they’re all cunning and sly, but the key to remember with deals online is if it’s too good to be true, it probably is. I know it will sound bad for me to say, but a lot of the time, ads with poor English and bad grammar are probably not real. If it say anything about advance payment, it’s fake. And don’t believe someone when they say you can make $500 per day with your clothes on.

My best friends in the world are online, no Joke. The internet is what is connecting the world, and that is amazing. I trust my online friends with everything about me. I would do anything they asked me. And I feel absolutely no fear about it. It’s… A fine line to toe, but it’s not as bad as everyone thinks it is. Now, I’m not going to tell you not to listen to your parents because they’re old fashioned and that means they’re ill informed. Not at all. Back when the internet was new, you had no idea what people were doing or saying. The world of reading emotion through text wasn’t quite there yet and the world’s first internet browsers were innocent young souls who weren’t well informed.

I don’t know if any of that made any sense, but it made sense to me. It’s four in the morning though, so I am allowed to be nonsensical, dosh garnit! Anyway… Yay, first real post hype! Thanks for reading, and I’ll see you in my next post.
