Shalom everybody,

I am finally back in Israel, after two very intense months of travel around Europe, where if I had not spent the time I needed to do business instead of blogging, I would have accomplished only half of what I did ; I am going back to Italy this week for Jewish Culture Week, then Amsterdam for IBC, back to Israel for a day for a hearing on farmland, then to Bruxelles for the ECOC Photonics Conference and finally to Avignon to make wine, when finally I will have the time to get this blog back into gear.

This time I just want to share a little item with you, and would really appreciate hearing from you about Internet fraud, if you have been a victim, or if you have in any way taken active action to fight back instead of justwearing out your wrist deleting it (I delete about a thousand a day, while moderating 164 yahoogroups, and I am the victim of viruses that found their way into my computers without even opening their e-mails, trashed hard disks containing priceless artwork and costing me already two thousand US$ in data recovery.

I have written to Conde Nast and STB toask them what their action will be about it, because this was the last straw and it made me decide to write a book on Internet Fraud and all the assorted scum of the Earth who destroy businesses and lives with viruses, unsolicited porn and gambling hijackings of one’s computers, and similar activities.
Singapore, in particular, has a great reputation for law enforcement, and might shine a beacon in the fight for honest use of honest computer time and the joy of living a honest life; Conde Nast too, having the financial means to fight back the abuse of their good name, might do so and make this case more interesting.
Let me hear from you, and I look forward to publishing your best responses, and if they become part of the book, share with you the relevant part of its revenue.
