    Now I'm not an omnipotent uber-geek (yet) or anything...but I've been around the block a time or two, and SECURE Labs doesn't sound familiar to me...anyone else know of them? A cursory google didn't return anything that was obviously relevant. And, the thread starter is using a Hotmail email address.

    I bet a few members might be interested in *considering* participating, but only after we've seen some evidence that this isn't a troll for resumes/personal information/email addresses/etc.

    Do you have a website? Would any other organizations recommend you? I'm not decrying "WOLF!"...yet. Give us a reason to not just ignore this out of hand.

    Hrmm, being that I love looking into things like this, lets break this down..

    - You signed up with your "secure-labs" name.. not your name. Okay.

    - Your e-mail isn't Tim@securelabs.blah or Support@securelabs.blah, instead it's a free signup hotmail address.

    - A google search will show/prove that you do not have a legitimate website. Or atleast a domain.

    With those conclusive pieces alone, it sounds like a scam or something of that sort. So please, no offense -- try it on a dumber group of people. Maybe neopets.com?

    Ok, let's break this down. We started with me and two other guys two years ago. We had about $50 bucks between us when we started. We got the Hotmail address at the beginning because ta da!! it's FREE!! Anyway, we've grown into a small consulting firm and we are about to launch a website and several learning tools for people of varying levels of computer savvy.
    Now, don't bother me with simple talk. Either you wish to help and get your name on the product or not.

    PS: Don't slam me and me org for doing what you have only thought about in some fleeting moment. Now if you have any comments that are not rude please reply. If you have an actual question I will answer them , but I will not respond to rude banter nor will I respond to hooks.

    We see requests like this a lot, and it's flattering I guess, but members have had their tut's and articles ripped off before. You come here with no background or credibility, so I doubt you will get much of a response.

    Congratulations and good luck with your venture, you will have a better response when you earn a reputation.

    Sure... question right here. Can you provide me with ANY actual evidence that your company exisits? A state database record (all states have them), a license of some sort, whatever.. evidence that Secure Labs is an actual, non-fictional company....

    Much appreciated,
