Re: Dialogue Tips

I don't think clicking the link in itself is harmful. On the page is a keylogging software download (supposedly to monitor children's usage), which I should have mentioned I would have SEVERE privacy concerns about installing. Okay, that makes sense.

Re: In need of a critique

I'm sure RSchibler is able to provide better feedback than I can, but if you would like a second perspective then I'd be happy to do my best. Just send me a PM. :)
