Please don't feed this TROLL,

I have never in my life seen such stupid posts that are so full of
Crap.
......................................

Do you mean me?

I'm very ignorant and just want simple information, which people are kindly
providing.
Unfortunately I don't know enough to risk doing some of the things they
suggest, in case I get it wrong.

I don't worry. I've been called some choice things on nz.general!

But when he is in his eighties, just think of all the new things he'll have
to learn. Chinese, for one.
And all the new technology.

I just got my third call - telling me that there are "bad files" coming
from my computer etc...
Jeesh - I know there are some very bad files there, some James Blunt
mp3s, photos of my mother in law etc.
The guy had an indian accent, so I let him carry on with his spiel, then
asked very politely "are you calling from India?".
He told me to "**** off", and hung up.
I was rather surprised.
