    I do accept as true with all of the ideas you have offered for your post. They are very convincing and can certainly work. Still, the posts are too brief for novices. Could you please prolong them a little from next time? Thank you for the post.

      Cheers. Unfortunately I only run off the media posts and walk a line between copyright and educational purposes which is why I feature the original story. The original source is typically fairly short as well, gets to me as well.

      What I’m trying to drive home is that it is not just a big overseas problem, it happens everyday in Australia to every type of business. This is a reference in hindsight. Check the tags/categories at the top of each story what allows you to drive a bit more value out of this.

      Appreciated DW
