Does anyone remember who actual broke the story (started the thread)?
and included a type in the opening post?
I did not, but NOW I do!
modding seems much better these days
In my head I thought everyone would all turn on sean and laugh at his broken website #Snowden then everyone would do this to me http://bit.ly/1pkEJkC
It wasn't a very considerate thing to do.
I'd just feel really sorry for anyone reading through mine. It's all boring job advice, boring minor legal advice and vile, vile hate mail from Casseroles.
and kicking you in the shins
At least this way we don't have to read it till a couple months down the line when the dis homepage is just links to every single PM and the email addresses associated with every account.
Seems like that's a pretty big oversight. You can delete received ones
Is it deliberate or just an oversight?
that essentially notes are just posts that only one user can read as sent, and one can read is inbox.
so if you deleted your sent, it'd delete it from the other person's inbox
which would be pretty snide
ALTHOUGH if that were true surely deleting fromthe inbox would delete from sent. going to PM TD some nonsense and ask that he delete it and i see what happens
i was talking shite apparently
so you may be joshing me OR has anyone ever noticed that this site is a bit broken?
then pushed delete. Maybe a caching thing where it takes a while to be properly shown as deleted?
for your valuable work
Haven't sent a PM in months
shows as "unread" in my sent notes
We're several £1000 in debt, so no developer work is going to be done until things pick up.
to letting the 6th former whizzgeeks developer wannabees of DiS tinker about with your code one day?
I obviously know nothing about websites or IT, but can't you make a clone of your site and then fiddle about with it and if it works, use the new site and disable the old one? If that's the case then let some volunteers have a go at carrying out a few fixzes. I actually think that the site works ok (now that Chris_budgie showed me how to revert to an old browser and document mode).
But what a 5 minutes they were eh?
is, well lacking morals.
The upside is that 5 minutes was about 10 minutes for me,.
in case i sent something salacious or private that i've completely forgotten about.
^this this post if you read a pm where i mention my penis please
but AQOS answers ain't one
Kind of weird in hindsight that anyone who posted a message, or talked about reading a message wasn't automatically banned
Think anyone would agree hacking private communications is a serious thing which shouldn't be allowed on a message board, just because this form of hacking required no technical skill don't see why that should absolve people of responsibility
its understandable but that doesn't make it right, it is the same mentality that covers everything from the news of the world hacking to the MPs expenses scandal and all kinds of other wrongdoing, people expecting there to be a system in place to stop them from doing something wrong, and if there is not thinking it is fair game, rather than just not doing something because it is wrong. don't think it would have been wrong to ban people who breached other privacy like that at all, I steered clear of dis that day felt very uncomfortable with the whole thing and don't think I had any notes to worry about so must have been a lot worse for people who did
he was probably the most gleeful at the time, and still seems to show no understanding whatsoever of why it was bad
might try not to be a prick for a bit
it's ok, nobody's perfect. I think I'll be fine as long as I only post in this subthread
I've got a theory that untrue was able to download them en masse before the issue was fixed and is just biding his time sorting through them. Which is why he doesn't post any more.
the only consolation is that, with the way they were ordered, it would take a heckuva effort to sort through them all. And at the end of the day... someone knows personal things communicated between two others big wup
then search specific terms from messages with salacious words in them
eg find "i want to eat your quim in totteridge", then search "totteridge"
[DOWNLOADING NOTES DATABASE]
"come on, come on!"
(door opens) "hey! what are you doing in here? you're not allowed in here!"
[ERROR CONNECTION TO DATABASE LOST]
bad guys win
was how quickly this was fixed after the issue was MADE PUBLIC rather than reported.
...They would get sorted quicker
Why focus on the car crash? No-one ever talks about how quickly they scraped the bodies off the road.
i didn't :'(
given the sheer number he must've sent over the years, nobody managed to accidentally unearth a HoFo cock pic.
