Security Hole

Aug 11, 1998, 2:28pm

I've been following this thread and I see you all have now covered:

1) security flaws in email software,
2) the prevalence and degrees of destructiveness of certain viruses,
3) jumpered vs. jumperless flash bios on motherboards,
4) custom built vs. brand name computer systems, and
5) the relative quality of various hard drives.

Over 50 meandering messages (being crossposted to 3 separate AW newsgroups
no less)... and related to AW exactly how?

Oh, and I nearly forgot the thread about the security of Java vs. ActiveX.

You guys have heard of Usenet newsgroups, right? Believe it or not, they
have newsgroups dedicated to just this sort of thing. Or would you feel too
much like small fish in the big pond over there? Would discussing this
stuff with people who actually know what they're talking about be too hard
on your egos?

Don't make me phone my pal JP about this violation of the newsgroup charter
and get you all banned from here. Maybe I should just crosspost this to the
Beta newsgroup and let Roland have at ya?

What about the "worldbuilders" and "wishlist" readers? I guess they're just
lucky to share in your community discussions.

>I skip threads I don't care to read quite a lot. You are free to do the

How about if instead of following your advice to skip threads I instead
decide to just follow your example of posting off topic in all the
newsgroups. :)

Get a clue Paul, there is no excuse for boorishly imposing your interests on
people in 3 different newsgroups at the same time.

:) That's more like it. You gotta know how to play the game.

I'm with Veto on this one. Shamus should be thanked for asking our opinions
before he just went ahead and started making changes.

We should encourage this type of behaviour from AWCOM staff and not hold
Shamus personally responsible for the bad judgement of others at AWCOM.

Now I just hope that those at AWCOM who are supposed to influence or make
policy decisions or be some kind of customer reps will be so bold as to
follow Shamus' good example and start asking opinions in here, be more
forthcoming with information, and answer questions when they are asked.
