I thought I would share this.

After reading the post headed "Received copyright infringement, from ISP", I thought I would share what I think is a similar type of experience.
My recurring issue has been with Yahoo.com, specifically, in the Answers section.
In my case, when I have reviewed others questions, such as "How many dragon species are there?" I responded by asking if the asker meant real dragons, such as the Commodo Dragon, which, I THINK, is from the Orient, or "dragons", such as in movies such as Reign of Fire, Dragon Slayer, Pete's Dragon, and many others.
Ironically, the asker reported my request for data, as an "offensive" answer. And this is NOT the first time that I have been reported, to the "Answers" staff.
Four times, so far, I have been reported, for "offensive answers", when I would "read" a "hacked" question, similar to "Where find finance to study pipe-laying school".
My normal response would be to ask the asker: "Do you mean "Where should you search, to find financial aid, for your plumbers training class""
Sveral such times, I have been reported, for re-wording questions. (I GUESS that people dont like it when another person changes there question, into a more understand-able form).
This is why I wanted to respond to this e-mail post, by letting the forum know that, very often, intentions are mis-construed.
So far, I have "lost" only one appeal, on Yahoo Answers.
What I should, also, mention, about internet "security" is this:
My Facebook, Hotmail, and Yahoo, accounts are, regularly, hacked.
In fact, for example: I had just changed my Facebook codes, and information, YESTERDAY, yet, today, my account was hacked, again!
This makes two hacks, in 24 hours. WHY, I have no idea, since I am NOT rich, or good-looking. For some reason, though, person, or persons, unknown, have targetted my on-line existance.
The only "Proof", of these activities was 2 weeks ago, when Yahoo decided to TRACK a hack, back to its source. I will admit to being stumped by finding out that, my account, here in the U.S., was hacked from Ireland.
As far as I know, I have NO family, or friends, living in Ireland.
This is why I thought I would submit this post. I thought it might let the other post know that they are "Not Alone". More than likely, a hacker has "broken" their codes, and is using their access codes, to steal motion pictures.
Since computers are so stupid that they had no idea of how to confirm identity, the hackers, in my view, are using this persons address, to steal, just as my own account was hacked, a few months ago, with someone sending extremely VULGAR, and Obscene, e-mails, to my contacts list.
As a result, I had to send out e-mails, apologizing for what the hackers had done.
This is why I want others to know that hackers have very sick, and twisted, minds. Hackers ENJOY making life hard, on their victims. The worst part is that, in the hackers psychosis, they "cover" themselves enough that, when a connection is cut, ALL "evidence" will point at their VICTIMS, and the VICTIMS will be the ones facing prosecution, while the HACKERS walk free, to terrorize other victims.
I want other victims to know that this kind of thing is just as real as air, and sun-light.
