Warning to those of Lusenet

greenspun.com : LUSENET : (Payton's Place) : One Thread

I am taking my time to warn you of the troll happenings of Uncs Wild West. The people (should you choose to call them that) are screwing around with each Lusenet board. Be careful what you click upon.

Thank you. It seems to be taken care of now.

This is actually too crazy... I landed in Fulton, MO, themescape for Petton Place and the Ronald Reagon movie "King's Row" yIKES...

"Just why, exactly, do you think someone would want to do that anyway? "

When someone doesn't know how to create anything useful or beautiful, destroying something can become the only avenue they have for feeling powerful or important.

I'm sorry. I'm not used to have my posts float to the top. My question was directed to Little Nipper.

Thanks for the heads up, Little Nipper. Just why, exactly, do you think someone would want to do that anyway?

It's Unk's Wild Wild West. Or it was. Rampaging vandalism caused Unk to shut it down yesterday.

The fact that users can easily insert HTML or Javascript into their postings on LUSENET forums also opens the door for some very malicious mischief. The forum moderator can remove it, but that can get very time-consuming and irksome - like scraping gum off the sidewalk with a wire brush. Eventually Unk got tired of it.
