Hackers, Attackers, and Helpers

previewWe’ve been doing some early spring cleaning at 3-D, getting rid of 59,000 “registered users”.  That’s a lot of comments to wade through on a daily basis-!

These include everything from computer-generated spam, and shopping links, to malicious hack attacks, hits coming in to the tune of three per second on most days.  Many originate in Eastern Europe, often trying to shut us out of our own site.

None are dangerous to our readers, nor their Screen Shot 2014-01-15 at 9.11.38 PMcomputers.  None have shut us down, nor silenced our voice.  I would liken it to a very determined ant colony trying to gain access to the pantry, first trying one way, then attempting another.

hackThe purpose and uniqueness of “Destinations, Dreams and Dogs” is to encourage readers through everyone sharing their own experiences.  Readers move from observers-on-the-sidelines to become powerful participants, offering feedback, telling what worked for them, asking their own questions, laughing or crying when they identify closely with something shared.

Topics include everything from adoption, to travel, parenting, captchaspirituality, pets, schooling decisions of any kind, motivational thoughts, current events, and so much more.  By you stepping up and joining the conversation, others are assisted.  What’s worked for you?

So here’s your personal invitation to jump in, request a topic, offer an insight, tell us what kinds of posts help you.  Tell a friend or two about the site, see if they might enjoy it, let us know what’s happening with you in your part of the world. 

If you’ve never posted a comment before, increased security means that you may need to copy a “captcha” the first time, those wiggly numbers and letters to assure us that you’re not a computer trying to bypass the system.

That’s it.  Easy-peasy.  Hope you can join us, the sooner the better.  Let the party begin!
