Today, I went to a paid content article from Forbes (linked from CNN) on the “10 best states to make a living”. OK, #10 was Minnesota, with a picture of Minneapolis – and when I clicked to see #9 I got a full screen ad from an email marketing company. I was able to back out of it, but when I tried it again, Chrome would not let me back out, or get back to the computer. I had to power off the machine and “quick start” Windows 10. I restarted it fully, and ran a quick scan on Trend Micro, which found no problems. I’ll restart one more time and run a full scan soon. (Done now.)
I think this little incident gives pause to consider how difficult it is today for some people to make a living, that they are trying silly marketing schemes out of desperation. Make America great again???
