    In a recent post FTG stated that this was her last post because of pc viruses. However, she also stated that she can be reached at the Sonesta Foal website, which obviously is obtained via the internet. That implies, whether rightly or wrongly that the website is safe and this one is unsafe. IS PFT safe? CAN you get a virus or trojan or worm or Spyware from being on the forums? I, personally, am not concerned about the bad stuff because of blockers, firewall, antivirus, and other software, but is there some misunderstanding on her part?

    Well Jim,

    i have been on the forums for a little while now, and have never had any security issues or problems arise from using these forums. unless you want to count a continuing fascination with carnivorous plants, and the addicition that starts with that very first venus fly trap and doesn't ever really end!

    peace,
    tech...

    I second technoracer. I've been active here since March of 2003, and even on my desktop, which has nearly no virus protection at all, I've not had any problems.

    I fourth that... It's not sites like PFT that are giving FTG the viruses, PFT is a private owned forum... its the sites like the foal forum, and those darn message boards on AOL, that are not privatly owned, that ahve all the adware/spyware/worms/trojans/worms all that poop [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]
