A Scam Alert On The Internet Is An Advertisement For Victimization
An internet scam alert is often the best traffic lure an online publishing company can have.
Public curiosity about a house fire, car accident or a Hollywood celebrity who gets drunk (again) and has a public fight with her boyfriend or ends up in prison (again) on drug charges, is an enticing invitation to the public to take a look at the facts and decide for themselves.
It’s part of human nature to want to know the dirty details of the “sizzling scandal” behind a scam alert.
Such notices posted on the internet to be picked up by search engines give the angry “victim” a way to strike back.
Certainly if a company is scamming customers, people ought to know about it. But when it's merely an in-house misunderstanding about pre-press, distribution or marketing details, it is important to reassure the public that these are common occurrences when dealing with individuals who are unhappy with themselves and looking for someone else to blame.
“Regard your good name as the richest jewel you can possibly be possessed of--for credit is like fire; when once you have kindled it you may easily preserve it, but if you once extinguish it, you will find it an arduous task to rekindle it again. The way to gain a good reputation is to endeavor to be what you desire to appear.”
--Socrates, Greek philosopher (469 BC - 399 BC)
To laugh is to risk appearing the fool.
To weep is to risk appearing sentimental.
To reach out to another is to risk involvement.
To expose feelings is to risk exposing your true self.
To place your ideas, your dreams,
before a crowd is to risk their loss.
To risk love is to risk being loved in return.
To live is to risk dying.
To hope is to risk despair.
To try is to risk failure.
But risks must be taken,
because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.
They may avoid suffering and sorrow,
But they cannot learn, feel, change, grow, love, or live.
Chained by their attitudes, they are slaves,
they have forfeited their freedom.
Only a person who risks is free.
--Leo Buscalgia,from his book, Living, Loving & Learning,from a copy at the Heart Transplant Unit at
University Medical Hospital in Tucson, AZ - 1987
Proverbs 22:1 – "A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches."
Don't be afraid to risk what's in your heart;
you just might discover Unconditional Love!
