Vulnerable - exposed to the possibility of being attacked or harmed. Naive - showing lack of experience, wisdom or judgement.
Not very positive words, are they? Well, I just want to stress, especially to the newbies out there, that if you open yourself up, anything can get in. Now, I know that sounds bad but it can truly turn your world upside down if you allow it. Prevent it!
Keep antivirus software on your computer ALWAYS! Common knowledge, but oh so important....we open and accept files from so many people here, just imagine the possibilities and overall, be careful! Someone could take EVERYTHING from you in the split on an eye.
Action is important, but don't get into such a rush that you skip over the terms of service for anything. You should ALWAYS know what you are accepting.
It could be just one simple mistake, one button pushed, one file accepted that could create the biggest and baddest whirlwind ever. So, just be careful out there!
There are no mistakes in life, only lessons! Hope this helps someone out there...
