    When a fellow forum member post a link do you hesitate to click on it?? I know I usually don't, if a member has posted a link they want me to see I trust that they aren't trying to screw me over.
    What's your trust level??

    Definitely dependent on the poster, lol.
    Not that I would think they're going to post something harmful, except maybe to my eyes.

    I'm about tired of finding out there are still things out there that shock me.

    Generally, no. I see a lot of links to news orgs that I don’t give-a-click about what they think.

    Depends on who it is. I also keep enough security stuff on my Linux PC that risk of any malicious infection is low.

    It depends on the following:
    Who posted
    Where they posted
    Where I am (ie whose PC am I using)
    My mood as to what I am willing to see and/or read about

    Do you ask people first if you can use their computer to Google yourself?

    I just took my first. In the last few minutes. It was a quiz. I enjoyed it. I know in my head I should be more careful. Maybe it's because I want so hard to believe that no one on HERE would do that.
