Clickjack

He finished the e-mail and paused to reread. He was disconcerted to see, instead of a polite request to be removed from the course, nothing but “FEAR IS WHAT THE PREY CAN CATCH FEAR IS WHAT THE PREY CAN CATCH FEAR IS WHAT”

He hit control-A and delete almost instinctively. The page was blank, and he was suddenly unsure what he’d seen. Control-Z. Nothing. He pressed a button experimentally. “B” floated peacefully on the screen, as expected, black on white. He started retyping the e-mail.

The letters appeared one by one, not at all matching his busy keystrokes:

“E-H-I-N-D Y-O-U”

I hear you can eliminate this problem by using the Dvorak keyboard, because most spirits & specters don't wish to be bothered making the switch.

Well done! "Fear is what the prey can catch" is a superb piece of writing in just seven words!

Yeah. I woke up from a dream in which that phrase was being repeated endlessly. No idea where it came from. It doesn't make a lot of sense, grammatically, though.
