Do you consider yourself paranoid sense you visit this forum

What do you all think ? Are we all paranoid people because we visit this forum or even read it?

If I were pressed for a one word definition I'd select the word 'curious'.
For sure, it's a curious group

Paranoid?

Who are you, and where did you come from? Why are you asking that question? Who are you? Are you a member of any Law enforcement agency, or the Government?

Paranoid? Hah!

I think that it makes sense to visit this forum, since forewarned is forearmed, and the paranoid among us may even need more help than others (even the paranoid can have real enemies).

We need to witness our own limits transgressed, and some life pasturing freely where we never wander.

What does paranoia have to do with this forum? We are all addicted to the Security forum! Just like we are addicted to dslreports.com.

I will say though, if the "average Joe user" reads too many threads around here every day, it's quite possible if he wasn't already paranoid, he may end up that way.

Funnily enough, being here actually helps prevents/lessens/diminishes bouts of paranoia

I was paranoid before I had even heard of this forum.

"Just because I am paranoid, it doesn't mean that they are not out to get me."

[Actually, I think "cautious" would be a more accurate term than "paranoid", at least in my case]

Only a paranoid would ask that question.

The rest of us are just trying to stay ahead of any potential problems.

Hmmm..I considered myself informed. Others, especially in my family consider me paranoid..
It's funny. I own an IPad too which isn't software FW (behind router) or AV protected but I use a windows pc or a linux live cd to do sensitive stuff. As far as a Mac is concerned, I'm more paranoid because I'm not certain of how to or if there are adequate tools for securing it properly.

That why we need to all get a Windows 8 Pro Tablet so we can install all our x86 programs on it for our security! That plus Firefox and all our addons finally on a tablet!

Internet security is the only area where paranoia ceases to be a psychiatric disorder and becomes a useful survival trait.

On the Internet, there really are people out to get you, everywhere.

Keep calm and carry on.

Speak for yourself.

Since paranoia is defined as "suspicion and mistrust of people or their actions without evidence or justification" and this forum documents evidence and justification for concern almost daily, it's a silly question.
