Dangerous Nerds

Here are some of the benefits for letting a document scanning program check your emails:

1. You probably won't be paying close enough attention to catch it.
2. Someone like my dad just can't resist the deals that appear in spam emails, so he needs a program to keep him from ever seeing it in the first place.
3. A person who makes a virus is the epitome of a person who has nothing else to do. Ever. This means that they have spent a lot of time thinking about how to trick you.
4. Using document scanning is a great way to develop technology in industries who attempt to prevent spam. What?
5. The last thing you want is to have a nerd crash your computer; it is the perfect balance of embarrassment and inconvenience. Don't be afraid to use all of the help that is available to you.

I don't know how many times I have heard that someone's computer was ruined just because they opened the wrong email. Seriously, just don't do that. It should be easy to tell when someone is sending you email that is tainted. There is a either a crazy voice, or a crazy product being sold. Basically, if it seems weird at all, it is something you don't want.
