We'd better start fortifying our northern border to keep out all those frostback refugees, too.


Ridicule is the only weapon which can be used against unintelligible propositions. Ideas must be distinct before reason can act upon them; and no man ever had a distinct idea of the trinity. It is the mere Abracadabra of the mountebanks calling themselves the priests of Jesus. -- Thomas Jefferson

For we know that our patchwork heritage is a strength, not a weakness. We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus -- and non-believers. -- Barack Obama

We see monsters where science shows us windmills. -- Phat

It has always struck me as odd that fundies devote so much time and effort into trying to find a naturalistic explanation for their mythical flood, while looking for magical explanations for things that actually happened. -- Dr. Adequate

You might not store password in plain-text anymore, however your cookie should be implemented the same way.

Comparing md5_dbpass to md5_hashpass. Or better yet learn how to use sessions. I don't know why you code in perl and cgi. I would transition to php and code plugins and add-ons for punbb (fluxbb).

Because it's cheaper than hiring a dominatrix?

So it appears by "my" post #17 that I am the person whose ID got hacked.

Who are these 'fine young gentlemen'?

As near as I can gather, high school students. One is in Toronto. They can be found on-line at:

URL: http://chat.mibbit.com/
Room: #clubhouse

Anyone can get in, though you can get booted. Someone gave me admin privileges for some reason.

They could be a very positive resource for us to the extent they're willing to share what they learn about our security holes.

Should we change our passwords again?

Also, I see you only suspended the asshole for 24 hours. Might want to change that.

In looking at Message 402, Did Mod cause the collapse of evcforum?, I see that Adminnemooseus is suspended indefinitely - probably the work of the hacker. And the color of his avatar looks wrong.

Checking the member list, I see AdminPD, AdminNosy and AdminSlev in the same condition.
