I have gotten two of these in the space of two days!!!

The email says:

Hi! You've received a postcard (or e-card) from School-mate! (okay, the first one said Partner)

Then it gives instructions to click the link to pick up your card. The first one was from "postcards.com" and the second from "2000Greetings.com". Funny thing, the links given were to private computers, not a business.

If you click on them, they'll download a trojan. It was pretty easy to detect these - with no reference to anyone I know, I googled postcards.com and 2000Greetings and found the scam warnings.

Stupid scumbags!!

Wow - what is it in the air lately? Post after filtered post about how everyone is feeling alone, disconnected, unwanted. It's not like this is one or two people - it's like a rash all over my friends list the past few days. Male, female, betwixt, undecided, unconcerned...it seems to be an equal opportunity Brain Weasel.

Clearly, something needs to be done.

I think we need to have a Brain Weasel Stomping Day.

The problem, as I've noted before, is "it's easier to see the Weasels when they're eating someone else's brain."

So. This is my call to my friends list, and to your friends list, and beyond. This Friday, make an effort to squish someone's Brain Weasel.

Have a crush on someone? Post a flirty comment in their journal. Admire someone's skills? Post a comment about it. Just think a person is nifty? This Friday is the time to tell them.

Doesn't matter if the post your commenting to doesn't have much to do with your comment. Just post those good thoughts. Trust me. People will appreciate it.

Do this for everyone - not just those you suspect are feeling down (After all, you might not be on their Brain Weasel filter). Take a few minutes and help launch people into the weekend with a smile.

And...who knows? Maybe sharing how others make you happy will make you a bit more cheerful in return.

Let's do it!!
