(Proverbs 1:11 KJV) If they say, Come with us, let us lay wait for blood, let us lurk privily for the innocent without cause:
Are you a joiner? Do you find yourself signing up for things and getting on mailing lists. Sometimes that is just a nuisance. Sometimes it will cost us.
In the internet age you can sign up for things without being aware of it. I just updated my security. When I came to the end there were repeated boxes I had to uncheck. If I had not done so I would have found my entire interface changed because they wanted permission to become my default in areas I did not want them to be my default.
Beware. People and groups are trying to suck you in.
So? Watch what you sign. Read the fine print. Be suspicious. Invest your life wisely.
