Gotta get this question out of the way, is this video game related? :)

Is aurupt the Boogeyman?

Aurupt = person? place? thing? event?

Were the warnings directly given to you? public at large?

Can the aurupt physically harm you? make you sick? cause you to lose money?

Are ghosts relevant?

Is aurupt related to crimes of some kind?

Were the warnings directly given to you? Not "directly" public at large? Again, not "directly", but...

Can the aurupt physically harm you? make you sick? cause you to lose money? None of these

Are ghosts relevant? No

Is aurupt related to crimes of some kind? No

Are the warning delivered via TV? PC? Radio? in person? newspapers?

Would you have not known to avoid the aurupt if not for the warnings?

Is aurupt related to computers? Technology? Are the warnings genuine? Made for the benefit of people like you? For the benefit of a business? Ads relevant?

Is aurupt a trick?

Is there a function of the smartphone, i.e. texting that is more relevant than others? or is this related to the smartphone in general?

** SPOILER **
Aurupt (from a shortened "Autocorrupt" which is "autocorrect + corrupt"), is when autocorrect turns a word in a message into something else unintended, typically something embarassing or inappropiate. The "warnings" in question are all the "autocorrect fail" images you can find online.



(I actually call this "Autocorrupt" myself, but that would be too obvious)
