Default Unsecure?

In my short time being here, I have noticed one flaw within this site: Its security.

Just today, there has been one impersation of one member, one member, maybe others, infected with a virus, one member's website defaced, and one member targeted and publically made fun of. Now, according to the rules of the site, that there violates all of them. The security of this site seems to be thin. My suggestion, as this section is for suggestions, is to find a member here who knows about internet security very indepth, and have them help out. There appears to be many flaws within the site, should people want to join this place, they must feel secure.

As a new member, I honestly thougth this place was secure, safe, and nice. It appears as though the place is not secure and is not safe, thoguh friendly, it lacks things that truly matter: your identity. people should not have to worry in the backs of their minds if someone is goign to hack their website or impersonate their account. This is uncalled for. I ask the staff to try and strengthen the security, so that the current members, as well as future members, can feel secure and safe being here, as well as enjoy themselves here.

yea... sure...


things such as email, messenger contacts are optional to put on public view...
and i highly doubt nasha's website was hacked cause of this site... there are about 9 other full pages of websites which had been hacked, its just annoying, but most probably not from here...

who got infected with a virus?

popups only occur if you are using IE... ive never, ever had a popup from here using firefox and adblock...



p.s. user genoxide banned for multiple accounts. you cant just make a new account justin... especially if it was the ADMIN who banned you.

Ok that was uncalled for. First off, that isn't even my IP address. Want proof. Here you go.

http://img19.imageshack.us/my.php?image=untitled8ml.jpg

My IP is not 66.154.192.129. it is 71.117.241.200. Completely off from that. Unless your IP 'check' is the only 'evidence' you have, please, let me have my account back. Did I cause any problems under GenoXide, no. Did I insult or disturb any members? No. What wrong have I done other then you accusing me of being someone else? Absolutly nothing.

However, to reply to the subject.

Hackslayer got infected with a virus when he visited 99nasha's website that he posted. And I never stated that his website was hacked because of this website, I simply suggested that the staff tighten security, you know, IMPROVE the website. But hey, I guess that's breaking a rule too now isn't it? you know, wantign to help out, God forbid we do that!!!
