I registered on JREF with a false name

Post by xouper »

Just recently (I won't say when), I successfully registered as a new member on the JREF forum and gave a false name.

I hope they have fun trying to find it.

And I hope they don't piss off too many people by suspending accounts they think are mine but really aren't.

Didn't everybody?
The most important things in life–beauty, grace, redemption, compassion, loyalty, love–are beyond the reach of reason. Which doesn’t make them any less real. Stay far back: I'm allergic to Stupid.

The simple rule, the greatest plan, that he should keep who has the power, and he should take who can.

I'm right 98% of the time; who cares about the other 3%?

I am surprised that THERE has lasted as long as it has since we all know, according to Darat, UpChurch, PaulA, and the Rest of the Toadies, we cannot possibly trust xouper because, like, he could have secret information that, like, well they have themselves put at risk, but, like, he cannot be trusted because he, like, irritated Darat by not posting for six months and, like, that is dissension and we, like, cannot have dissension on a skeptical and freethought board because, like, the movement is more important than the movement and stuff.

He has probably damaged THERE in ways we will never truly appreciate.

I, for one, am hoping mad!

I give THERE 17 days--17 DAYS!--to rectify this Serious Security Breach which, is, like, far greater than any security breach they have had.

Or, barring that, they could all just grow up.

At one time the SC was hacked, fortunately by a rather beniegn hacker, who did nothing more than change a few titles to posts. At the time Claus came over here and had hysterics because of the hack and because the upgrade that would have prevented the hack had been available for 17 days prior to the hack. So now it is a running joke about the 17 days thing.

I wonder if they'd get thrown off by two or more people with the same name. I don't know if I'm still active at the JREF boards but the banning of Xouper ought to have triggered mine as well, assuming they actually bother to look at member's real names.
If it's good enough for Nelson, it's quite good enough for me.

Ah yeah, I remember that.

The point is, php/vbulletin is inherently insecure and should never be used to warehouse any potentially abuseable information. By mandating the collection of personal information in an insecure manner the JREF put themselves and their users at uneeded risk.

Which is ironic considering thats what this whole exercise was supposed to avoid.
