I hate spammers, computer based info stealing, etc

I know I have said it before, but I will say it again - I hate those who send spam and those who try to steal information on the internet.  I hate those who make the viruses.  I hate those who try to put ads into places they are not wanted.

I know some of those whom I read have been plagued by computers spamming their comments.  In a way I hate Blogger for the way they have devised to stop that mess.  With my eyesight being what it is, I cannot read that stuff.  The numbers are small and usually dark.  The letters are skewed.  Well my vision is usually dark and skewed.  The retina in my left eye must resemble crumpled aluminum foil.

Also I seem to have a recurring problem with pop-ups.  My firewall is supposed to stop them.  It is a highly rated firewall.  I generally use Google Chrome which is supposed to block them, and I just checked  my settings - pop-up blocker is supposed to be on.  I installed another Chrome thingy to stop things like that.  Nothing is working.

Why do people have to make surfing the internet so dangerous and miserable?  I wouldn't use any of the products that are advertised on a bet.  My list is growing hourly.

I agree 100%! I'll add to your comment about blogger - I hate that you don't see that crumbled foil code until AFTER you've written a possibly lengthy comment. Then what do you do? Hit the back button or try to decipher the code? I keep my favorite blogs in a blog roll, and put a note besides those blog names so I know it's one of those hard codes before I ever start commenting. I have to want to comment pretty bad before I comment on one of those.

I've been getting pop ups on a lot of blogs lately too, and I wonder if the blog owner knows they are there? I really dislike those.

I try so hard to remember that there are good people in the world. Sometimes the crazies get more press.
