Start By Learning To Spell

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 24, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

Apparently there is an old saying: if you can’t beat them, join them. Sorry, but I can’t do that in this case, I just can’t. It is something which has annoyed me for such a long time that I simply overlook it now – well, mostly – automatically assume a meaning for what has been […]

Selfies: I Need Some ID For That….

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 11, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

If you imagine that the fad for selfies begins when a person – especially a woman – is mature enough to understand the effect they could have, when she has left puberty and entered that period when almost anything is legal, than you will undoubtedly be surprised, if not shocked, to discover that this simply […]

Oh, You Foolish Few

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 26, 2014 in Immoral Conversations, Internet |

Not so long ago I wrote about how Tumblr is becoming the latest thieves site: shoplifters posting their swag pictures for all to see and admire. Those on Tumblr, however, clearly have a little more in their heads than other people, such as a woman in West Franfort, Illinois who decided to post a selfie […]

Copyright: There’s Something You Haven’t Quite Understood

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 21, 2014 in Internet |

All this talk about copyright, the commercial use of photographs, photo theft and the like reminds me a little of the misconceptions over commercial use of individual images by certain social media web sites we frequent and the means some people go to, to try to protect their property. I am thinking specifically about sites […]

Duckface: Uses For A….

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 22, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

Having written a few words about selfies – yet again – a few days ago, I’m returning to another self-portrait theme which keeps on rearing its (ugly) head: the Duckface. This time, however, I’m not going to ruin your day with instances of excessive cosmetic surgery gone wrong or the horrors of bathroom and toilet […]

Death Of The Selfie

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 20, 2014 in Internet |

It has been hailed as the end of the selfie: the Duke of York took a photograph of himself and guests during a function and posted it to Twitter, apparently a first for the English royal family. And, of course, there was an almost instant uptake on the photograph with many media sites snapping their […]

Twitter: The Double Dog Dare

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 16, 2014 in Immoral Conversations, Internet |

If thirty people re-post this I will do something absolutely amazing or, better yet, amusing and silly. Has anyone not seen this or a similar line on Twitter or Facebook? If you haven’t then you’ve probably got a very stable, upright set of friends or followers. Although, sometimes, there are ‘if you’ messages for something […]

Thieves: Moving From Facebook To Tumblr

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 4, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

Have you heard the story about the man who got caught because he bragged about his crimes on Facebook? If you haven’t, well, that surprises me because when I say ‘man’ I mean many, many people. It was, and perhaps still is, a trend to post details of a big coup on Facebook, to show […]

Twitter: Not Quite Dead Yet

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 2, 2014 in Internet, News & Opinion |

I don’t know who first said it – although it’s probably well documented on the Internet somewhere – but the reports of the death of one or another social media platform are exaggerated. At the moment or, better, once again, it is Twitter that has died or is in its final throes. When you’ve nothing […]

Facebook And Neil Trotter

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 26, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

You’d think that most people who spend any time on the Internet, or who have been a party to the scam mails over Neil Trotter and his lottery win, would have realized by now that there is something wrong with the whole thing. I’ve covered the scam here and here and it has been well […]
