Speaking of terms and definitions, I'm definitely not one to know much about those, . .

but as a subject starter, I can sometimes do that.

My PC literacy has improved a little over the last year or so, but still consider myself fairly lucky to have my machine running.

I'm here to make the General Chat or give to it a bit more than a one liner that I so often do.

There are two things on my mind for this;

First I am curious to know, and I assume that the term, "re-direct", has been around for awhile.

Have you noticed it on the surface these days or is it just a brand new viral nasty thing, some poor derelict digital, nerd dreamt up.

I sometimes think, that some of those viral things are simply the product of dis-jointed software associations that are the-by products of a scurrying competitive. "for profit" commercial PC market and become rumored to be viral agents.

The other thing is that I was going to say and now that I'm about to, it seems a little less important, . . but, I was going to suggest that some day in the years to come, that each forum might have a general Chat, that would regard the Subject of that form, yet would set it apart from the direct technical stuff that is going on there.
