Someone has Gall

There is always a virus or two out there and wise users regularly use an anti-virus on their computer, along with a few other protections. To put it mildly, that is a good thing.

Some cretin has developed a virus that holds your computer ransom for $10.99. This guy is crazy because no matter how you pay it it would be tracable. It apparently originated in Russia but an English version is now available.

Nice.

Actually it's not Capitalism because the person who did it is not working for it fairly.
That's it! Must be Socialism... LOL. Definitely a Socialist.

That's not capitalism. It's extortion.

LOL! It's very funny! As an IT person; I'd be ticked if it happened to my systems. However, with so many people still complacent in taking care of their systems; maybe a few more incoveniences may force them to more proactiveness.

First off, I agee with pjc that this is not capitalism but extortion and no rebekah it is not socialism either. tim is right about that but about being fair, when it comes to economics "What is fair doesn't work and works isn't fair." That's just how it is; I don't like it but all attempts to change inevitably lead to something worse.

No, I was just joking about socialism.
I never said Capitalism is "fair". Nothing in life is fair. But in capitalism you can work for something without anyone taking it away. That sounds fairer than a lot.
