Complexo de culpa (GUILT COMPLEX)?

Circula na Internet uma fotografia de um navio que, diz a legenda, teria supostamente levado milhares de europeus para o norte da África em 1945, imediatamente após o fim da segunda guerra mundial, percorrendo o caminho inverso ao que agora percorrem os refugiados muçulmanos da Síria, e ao mesmo tempo tentando mostrar como os europeus e os caucasianos, em geral, são os piores seres do gênero HOMO (do Latim homem, e não do Grego, igual), espécie Sapiens, subespécie Sapiens (Homo sapiens sapiens).

A foto é esta:

Pois logo alguém pesquisou na internet e deixou claro que isso é a uma deslavada mentira. O navio Vlora Durres , segundo o site www.migrantsatsea.org, estava transportando, ilegalmente, junto com vários outros barcos, 15.000 refugiados da decadente Albânia comunista para a Itália, em 08 de agosto de 1991, conforme a manchete abaixo, e não europeus fugindo para o Norte da África em 1945.

20th Anniversary of the Arrival at Bari, Italy of 15,000 Albanian Boat People

Twenty years ago, on 8 August 1991, several ships carrying approximately 15,000 Albanian migrants succeeded in entering the port of Bari, Italy. The Italian government’s response was harsh. Most of the Albanians were detained in a sports stadium without adequate food, water, or access to bathrooms. Italian authorities dropped supplies to the detained migrants by helicopter. Within several weeks most of the migrants were deported to Albania. Their harsh treatment was criticized by human rights organizations and the Pope, but was justified by the Italian government as necessary to deter further irregular migration from Albania.

Ou seja, como de costume, é importante que as notícias recebidas via Internet sejam sempre conferidas antes de serem repassadas.

Nos EUA recentemente aumentaram as tentativas telefônicas de malfeitores com o objetivo que entrar, com permissão da vítima potencial, em seus computadores, para a instalação das mais variadas porcarias, através do acesso remoto do Windows. Vejam esta nota da CNET sobre o assunto:

Fake Microsoft support calls still alive and making the rounds

Dear CNET members,

Have you ever received a call from someone claiming to be Microsoft technical support notifying you that your computer has been infected by viruses and the company would like gain access to your computer to fix it? If you have, you aren't alone. It's a scam, please don't fall for it! Their goal is to get into your computer to do who knows what! I brought this topic to our readers' attention a few years back and gauging from this recent post in the CNET forums by member Liz Friedrich titled "A call from the technical department of Microsoft" I can see that this scam is still alive and making the rounds around the world. So I thought I'd bring it to your attention again. Tell your friends and family to be aware and to never allow anyone to access your computer remotely. Microsoft technicians will not call you for that reason.

Many members have already responded in the discussion telling their stories of what they did and how the perpetrators lure you into it. Some of the scammers are clever and persistent, but not as clever as some of our members who responded to them with all sorts of mischievous tactics to make them give up. So give this discussion a read. If you've been called by one of these fake Microsoft technical reps asking you to let them into your computer to fix problems, come join us and share your story. I hope that this warning goes beyond our readership and spreads to everyone so that no one will fall victim to this scam. Be safe out there, everyone, and spread the word! I look forward to reading your stories.

Meus votos de um excelente fim de semana.
