Nature Girl, I hope you read this, just because it's so silly.

So NG just posted about her in-laws never reaching out to her and I said I've had the same experience. My MIL got one of those viruses that emails itself to everyone in your address book several months ago, and it emailed itself to me. I sent her a cordial response and she ignored it, and I was pissed, but whatever.

So you know what just happened? She emailed me ANOTHER fucking VIRUS! For God's sake, take me out of your damn address book, if you're going to do nothing but send me shit that will ruin my computer! I mean, I know better than to click on the links, but geez. She's pissed at me over whatever story her son has told her, so fine, but quit emailing me viruses. Get some antivirus software and stop following suspicious links! Plus, if you're going to treat me like crap over whatever garbage you believe, get rid of my email address!

Can you block their email address to stop any further infections?

Nice to know your IL's aren't sophisticated enough to install anti-virus software on their computer, yes?

I hear from my kids that STBX's computer has again fully crashed from a virus. I know why. He gets these viruses from the porn sites he visits. They're really bad one, so he goes through computers the way you & I go through cheap drug-store flip flops.

Coraline -

After NatureGirl's post, I kind of wonder if the viruses your MIL is getting might be due to your X using her computer for porn.

My MIL lives thousands of miles away, so I know it's not my STBX's fault. She must just be opening links other people send her. Or maybe she gets them some other way? I don't know. It's just so...fitting, almost...that the only things I get from her now are computer viruses. lol

Editing because I forgot to say that I hadn't wanted to block her because I kept hoping she would come around, and eventually I'll have the kids almost all the time, since STBX is military, so I thought she'd want to get in touch with them. I unfriended them on Facebook because STBX was making so many threats about taking the kids, accusing me of being crazy, etc. I sent them a nice message when I did it, saying I appreciated the time I was in their family and just needed to erect some boundaries. Maybe that pissed them off. If they knew how he'd been acting, they'd have understood. I needed distance between myself and anyone who might be willing to assist him in his war to destroy me. So anyway, I wanted some line of communication available. Clearly this one isn't going to work, lol.
