Re: Another Lesson in Computer Security

There wouldnt need to BE a second time...

Did we change something on the board with regards to the quoting? It appears to be carrying prior quotes in requotes and while that may make some things slightly clearer, its making a lot of things really hard to read.

I take it you don't like the new "nested quote" feature?

Just for the record, I'm a big fan of the nested quotes...

Not in the least. Much of the time i end up with a bunch of flotsam and jetsam that I have to edit out or I need to pull up a scoreboard to see where I need to put the quote and unquotes to fit the responses into the pile o' stuff.

Like I said, about 10-20% of the time its nice to provide some clarity to a quote of a quote of a quote. The rest of the time its kinda a pain in the butt...

This response in particular took a bit of time to sort out. :P

I keep removing some extraneous quote/unquotes and when I preview, they get put back in :P :P :P

I'd much rather have a "user ignore" feature than this.

Why would you want everyone to ignore all those posts you type?

The $ might get you a say in these matters, but producing 1/3 "content"?

1/3 volume, yes. But "content"? That's questionable.

I didnt say it was GOOD content. But I will be willing to debate you in a 20,000 post thread on what constitutes content and the relative merits and virtues of volume in the context of content...

After another morning with the nested quotes, they're fine if you want to type a simple reply. If you want to insert comments into other peoples replies here and there, its a pain in the butt. But then again I hate those 10 part replies, both doing them and reading them, and when discussions get to those specific detailed levels, they've usually become one of those worthless mutually destructive diatribes.

Re: Another Lesson in Computer Security

And just to be clear, I didnt say that I had (or wanted) a "say" in any matters. In fact, those with scorecards will remember that I've steadfastly refused any involvement in having any kind of "say" in anything at all.

I simply used the friendly collective "we" when criticizing, rather than the accusatory "All Y'all".

This would be the polar opposite of the old "Jim Kelly" maneuver where anytime anything good happened, it was "me" and "I", and anytime anything bad happened, it was "we" and "us", as in "I threw a couple of touchdowns, but then we also threw some interceptions".

Little tidbit for you old time football fans...
