Okay, I know this happened a while ago as well, but it seems to be happening again. Bolded text, sometimes underlined, with a green link symbol in the right corner. DO NOT CLICK THEM. Most of the time, you can scroll over it and it will show you a download thing. Please please don’t click it, doing so can place viruses on your computer or laptop. So, SIGNAL BOOST PLEASE. Get everyone to know that it’s happening once again, and hopefully it will be fixed so we can all resume tumbling.
I remember I used to get these things, and it was because something had downloaded itself onto my extensions in chrome, so if you see these, check your extensions/apps that you have in your browser and disable/delete any you don’t recognize
If you see your dash spiked with these, then congratulations. You already HAVE a virus. More specifically malware. I can only recommend to install Malwarebytes to get rid of it before it manifests and crashes everything you love. Trust me, I just lost my last laptop to that shit.
best thing i learned working with and learning about kids: when they do shit like this, especially to something they themselves use and enjoy, leave it there for as long as possible. let them return to the fun thing over and over again so that it sinks in that the thing they did was wrong, they ruined something, and now they can’t have fun because of it and they should never do it again. it teaches them consequence of action and cautiousness.
i did this with a 3-year-old kid i babysat who filled his playstation with peanut butter before i got there, just every time he went back to it and asked why it’s not working, i opened it and pointed to the peanut butter stains and said “you did that” and he says “yeah”, “will it work like that?” “…no”, and when he got it and promised to never put anything but games into a game machine again, his parents bought another and he kept his promise. it works, even at that age.
this was a long and unnecessary rant but so many times i’ve seen parents IMMEDIATELY replace their kids’ toys/electronics that they destroy over and over again and i’m just like NO THEY’RE NOT LEARNING ANYTHING THAT WAY
they also don’t learn from being thrown into fires
yeah but they’re quieter that way
