    AV Advice (help out a fellow Jupitermedian)

    Greetings

    A shameless plea:

    Help out a pal over at Datamation, please. Long story short, his Norton subscription is drawing to an end, wants to weigh his alternatives.

    I know the question's been asked ad-nauseum around here, but he's asking for 'professional help' Go over there and post your recommendations if you can spare a minute. I always say Avast. What say you?

    Err.. Are you saying you recommended Avast and he doesn't trust you?

    I have avast on this box... I like it... AVG is acceptable too. Both are free so the price is right and neither are the system hog that Norton is...

    No, I'm saying that I'm TRYING to recommend it, but his blog is calling me a spammer when I try to post About to fire off a terse email!

    I say his site rules need looking at:

    Your comment was rejected because it appeared to be spam.
    They don't like you mentioning product names?

    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.

    LOL... You're on his "Ignore List"... That sux... I'll see what I can do...

    [EDIT]

    Ok, I did it... But he's moderating my post because I'm a first time poster... So he should get the message...

    Good work, thanks! Thought I would have to forever wear a scarlet 'S' across my chest (for spammer, not Superman - I'm not delusional)

    LOL...

    That would depend entirely upon the lady... I'm much pickier now than I was when I was younger... and I actually had standards back then....

    But most people use this as a single word....

    Now, why do I think this thread is about to go downhill rapidly...

    ... because it's Friday, and we are bored and some have one-track minds

    Anyway, keep up the responses over at Datamation. He's started approving the comments. We may even set a record. Thanks!
