Spreading an Assyrian Virus could Create Publicity for us!
« on: December 10, 2006, 12:59:21 AM »
When a distructive computer virus appears on the web, people take notice. Millions of users worldwide take protection just to avoid it. In the process, they learn the name of the virus, the history behind the name etc. For example, the Mellissa virus from 1998, was a name given to the virus by its programmer creator, after a hooker he used to meet in a Miami hooker house.

Now my question to you is: ignoring the issue of ethics, do you think we would get any publicity if we created a computer virus and spread it across the globe? the virus will be mutating but not very disctructive. Just to the point where it makes you take a note of it, and have its name stick on your mind for some time. We would for example name it 'Assyrian Virus' or even 'Assyria'

They say any publicity is good publicity. Do you think this would help us in a positive or negative way? in the short term, it would probably sound bad for us. But in the long term, more people would know about us, which is always a bonus.



I am not advocating for the creating of virsus here, because it is just unethical. This is just a question for you guys to consider and debate.

I'd really have to say this is the worst idea you've ever come up with Ashoor, hypothetical or not.

Besides, is that the first thing you want coming to peoples minds when they hear the word Assyrian?

Thanks Kevin, this is why I posted it here, to see what good and bad can come out of it. Like I said in this line: They say any publicity is good publicity. Do you think this would help us in a positive or negative way?

it is sad that we would have to resort to creating a virus to gain some publicity, cuz we are not smart and hard working enough to create that publicity fore us, using other moe traditional and respected ways.

Remember one thing: when it comes to viruses, people don't usually generalize. So if a virus creator is Brazilian, people will not assume that all Brazilians are virus creators or untrustworthy. After all, you are only giving it such a name, and doesn't have to be related to you as a people or nation.

In other words, a Russian programmer could create a virus and name it after another country. It is not about where it was created. It is simply about making the people aware of the word with which the virus is associated.

You are right Ashoor, any publicity is good publicity but what makes you thing that anyone researching Assyrians will look into our current plight and not just research our great ancient history?

If you do decide to create one id like it to be called AssyrianRights  :angelnot:

I can just see it now -- Kofi Annan coming into his office bright and early, coffee in hand, and ready to check his e-mails.  He clicks on one entitled "Genocide in Iraq!" only to have "Zaynokeh" come blaring out of his speakers while images of Assyrians dressed in joleh d'khomaleh are dancing khigga on his screen.  The Assyrian Virus spreads to all the contacts in his database, and lo and behold, every international leader now knows who the Assyrians are.  Brilliant idea Ashoor!!
