    Default FATAL mistakes you've made on the internet.

    Stuff like:

    Misunderstanding a term,

    Going to the wrong website,

    Donating to a "Nigerian Prince",

    etc.

    And what did you "learn"?

    I took a meme way too seriously one day. Taught me to be extremely cautious online from then on because it was so embarrassing once I found out what it was all about.

    And I kinda sorta deleted an account I had for about eight years on another website because I felt a bit upset. Eight years just down the drain. Don't want to go into details because I still regret it.

    Either of those counts I'd say.

    I watched a video on youtube called "Youtubers react to the weirdest video you will ever see guaranteed". Don't look it up if you value your sanity. It involves a Japanese surrealist arthouse comedy film. Enough said.

    Google searching Muff Diving. On the plus side, I now know something I didn't before.

    I Googled Imaged "Tarutaru," which is a race from Final Fantasy XI. It was a fairly innocent search, but one of the first 10 results...it was just awful. Don't try it now- the image is no longer there.

    When I was a kid I gave a hacker my little brother's neopet's username and password (I was at least unsure enough to give his instead of my own LOL) under the promise that they would go into his account and give him loads of neopoints or whatever... yeah he never got into his account again pft I'm a terrible sibling.

    I also thought that "n_n" was synonymous with "-_-" for the longest time. I used to have an online friend who used "n_n" ALL THE TIME and she was pretty sarcastic/ negative, so I guess that's just how I always viewed that smily lol (n_n is actually the same as ^_^).

    Funny you should capitalize the word "fatal," because I think mine was investigating FATAL any further than the one famous review of the notoriously low-quality and extremely crude RPG.

    I've made a minor one and a major one:

    Minor: Thinking that T_T conveyed seriousness. I used it in a chat several times before realizing that I was sounding like a crybaby.

    Major: Making a post defending feminism on an anti-feminist Youtube video. And after that, entering into a month-long debate on the topic while most everyone seemed to take everyone's side but mine. A similar experience happened recently when I made a post on Facebook defending pedophiles. That caused quite the uproar, and one person even stopped being my friend because of it. Moral of story: Tempting though it may be, never play devil's advocate on the Internet.

    lol, it's like that time I made a comment supporting eating meat on a vegan youtube video. xD That was pretty funny though, they're horrible at defending themselves so everyone just stopped replying after a while. Also why would anybody be anti-feminist... feminism is literally just supporting equal rights for women. -__- I guess you could disagree with certain aspects of it, but still...

    Anti feminism arises because some people take feminism too far. Most anti-feminists are against the feminists who hate men.

    Also, it's getting a get off topic.

    Errrr I don't know what some of you guys are talking about. Fatal? Tarutaru? Maybe I shouldn't know. Biggest mistake for me was letting those scammers from India claiming to be from Microsoft tech support access to my computer. They actually got as far as being able to move my mouse and start looking through my files before I cut it off. Luckily my computer was safe and all my files were intact. I don't keep any banking information on my computer so that's all safe. And I have a new computer now so its all good.

    FATAL might be overkill, unless you click something that eats your hard drive.

    My worst mistake? Well, I actually read My Immortal. And I'm petty sure Pokémon Indigo (I think that's what it was called) was the source of the worst virus my old laptop ever got. It was painstaking nights of work to undo that mess.

    I love when the Microsoft Scammers call, they've taught me I know how to be really annoying, I harass the heck out of them. I irritated one to the point where he hung-up, then called right back so he could shout the F-bomb at me. It's sad how little some of them know about computers and Microsoft too. One of them told me he was with Microsoft's Micro Tech department, uh yeah. . . Micro Tech make military stuff, they're not part of Microsoft.

    Well, being curious also sucks. I did and I don't want to remember it.
    This reminds me of the day I searched Carbuncle. It's a summon from FF if nobody knows. It's also something really gross and disgusting. For some reason I never thought Carbuncle was EVER a word used for some sort of disease or whatever you name it. I always thought it was made-up for fiction purposes.

    Well, i'm not sure how "Fatal" this would be, but curiosity got the best of me and I went and looked up "Insanity Wolf" in a Google Search. While some items that showed up amused me somewhat, a good number of them were just in bad taste.

    Also involving Google Search, looking up "[Enter Franchise here] in Real Life" may or may not make you wish you hadn't...

    did that once, never will again. i did call the store i got my pc halfway thru their process, shut my PC off immediately when i found it was a scam. they called me as they lost connection and wanted me to reconnect them, i told them i was onto them and to bug off. whats worse they time it at deadzones ie weekend evenings when most support tech is closed. i had to reformat, cancel the credit card/paypal and abandon the email account.

    they tried the same scam a few weeks later but i they got nowhere from that.


    the title of the thread is very misleading.
