Beng-Gee will give your PC a BUG! (Or not...)

:::WARNING::: Check any automated links you have on your blog! Here's a blog that surfers are afraid to visit because a virus has nested on it: under the heading "MY BLOGGER BUDDIES" (depedning on your browser, you may be able to click on the images to see larger versions).

::: MESSAGE TO BENG-GEE ::: edit that list down to the five or ten bloggers (like me) whom you KNOW you can TRUST!

Imagine my surprise when I set out to go entrecard dropping today and THIS was staring back at me from my monitor:

According to Google, going to drop an EC on beng-gee could result in "malicious software being downloaded and installed without user consent" - so I did a little digging and found the culprit "Gamer's Den" located in a sidebar link on Beng-gee.blogspot.com

  4. Hello Lucas! This may be a very delayed response to this informative post yet I wanna send you my deep appreciation for taking time to find out the culprit that spread virus on my site. I'm no techy person thus the complete ignorance on such malware existence.

    Again, thank you so much for the great help!

    Beng Gee

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
