Cleaning up a customer's PC, I made the mistake of leaving a tab open on Yahoo's home page. Only 1 minute later: malvertized. Sunuva...
I did it again to pin down the cause, & indeed it's Yahoo's ads breaking out, taking over the page, & loading scary messages that make it difficult to leave.
I can't stress enough, folks, that an ad blocker is Internet SECURITY software.
This is a fascinating article on Donald Knuth, computer scientist, author of the seminal work The Art of Computer Programming, Sunday School teacher. https://nyti.ms/2GjaIjp

Some jerk took down my "No on Prop A" yard sign while I was at work! Caught the suspect on video... https://video.nest.com/clip/4289a6a50e29477a8b891462960f31b5.mp4
"From the balcony of their fourth-floor condo in the Denali building where they’ve lived for four years, Maggie Hostetler and Lorri Sipes, like some of their neighbors, have a south-facing view overlooking the Library Lot and beyond.
"They’d rather look out at a park than the side of a 17-story high-rise blocking out the sun and scenery they now enjoy."
Oh really? FYIGM I guess.

I have been sitting at my desk at home, with a view of my (one-way) street, for about ten minutes this morning, and I've already watched one car go the wrong way down it.
An oncoming car —going the right way — honked at him. He pulled into a driveway, waited for the car to pass, and then pulled back out and continued driving the wrong way.
The next time a driver complains to me about a cyclist doing something they disapprove of, I'll have to leave the room to avoid punching them.
I decided to just use the one Mastodon account after all, regardless of topic. Trying to cut down on social media time as much as I can, and playing the multi-account game feels antithetical to that.
