On the matter of shooting down Amazon delivery drones with shotguns

doctechnical

I'd never hunt for Amazon drones using a firearm! That's silly.

I'd use a Tesla coil.

Auturun == leaving your doors unlocked

>>Why is it "thick" to not disable autorun?

Because it implies utter and complete trust that anything you connect to your computer (CD/USB/DVD/What have you) is harmless.

It would be trivial for me to create a CD that would run rampant on your system, delete any number of files (or worse yet, scramble them just a *little* bit so you wouldn't suspect), install spyware, keyloggers, any other malware you can imagine. Autorun makes it simple.

My suggestion: Don't be so trusting. Don't leave your doors unlocked, don't put your keys under the mat, and disable autorun.

Seriously.
