I think maybe you should do something abou the METAs, JP. People might get the wrong impression.... just a thought.

Good Idea, could make the Scriptkiddy percentage drop with about 10 or 20 percent..

I know I've had a problem with it before. I went out of town a few weeks ago to visit my family and my only connection to the world was through my parents filtered internet provider. Their service classified AO as a criminal behaviour site and wouldn't let me access it. I filled out a form to have someone take another look at the site, and I explained that it wasn't pro-hacking, but rather anti-hacking, but I never got any answer back.

I was at my school, checking AO, only to find it blocked by Novell Bordermanager. I was given a little user/password prompt for what I must assume was an override. Figuring I didn't want to spend my 15 minutes of time trying methods of circumvention, I just typed in a username "WhyDidYouBlockThis?ItHasGoodForumsAndIsn'TIllegal" (or something of that vein, I don't remember)
Surprise surprise, next week unblocked? Who can say? It's nice when the technology coordinator's computer-laden office is a short walk away...

I didn't think that those parental thingys worked on METAs, I thought that they already had a huge long encrypted list of sites to block. But maybe that is just some of them.

While on the subject of headers... you could include a favicon header to each generated page :P

hmm i think JP could just get rid of the following META names..
coz those are the ones that attracts kiddies..
Hacking,Hacker,Crackers,Virus,Virii,spoofing,key logger and phreaking

I haven't seen many posts about "phreaking" ever. So maybe he should get rid of that anyway.

just my 10 c
JP is running a buisness of this site.. so he wants all the attention he can get?? works well as he reguraly has 200 + ppl on at one time
he earns most of his living of this to take away his flow of script kiddies / possible clients etc etc
May 12th, 2002, 01:14 PM
Yeah, I guess. That makes sense. So maybe taking script kiddies away from the site is a bad idea. But something has to be done, because some people are getting really annoyed and some old member are starting to leave.
