Okay, now you've just pissed me off 2005-06-05 23:08:54

So we've had 4 users in the last 4 weeks who think they're cute and want to either futilely attempt to root our boxes, or send out lots of bank email scams from our systems. I'm not in the mood to deal with this kind of bullshit, so signups are off due to an influx of assholes.

We're gonna have to develop some new form of user approval - something with a little more substance to it than our current "honor system" process.

i agree. i am just a (l)user, but i don't wanna be a part of the monkey doing everything against others. if it will keep the Vectorstar running, stronger the rules.

Unfortunately the count of users has gone from 4 to 9. I'm still thinking about different ways to solve the problem of keeping jackasses out of our systems. Too many more of these users and our network provider is gonna cut us off!

Okay, lets be honest. You give people an inch and they take a mile. These jerkoffs have no care into the amount of work you have invested in this little project, nor the problems they cause with this kind of abuse. So, I say with all the seriousness I can scavenge from my tired little mind that from now on whenver someone signs up, agrees to the accepted limits of use with every intention to break those limits and then does it ... we find there home, kick the shit out of them and microwave every piece of electronics found therein. Then give them a warning or something until next time. Just a thought.

Oh, believe me... if these people were anywhere near this area (instead of in romania, brazil, china, etc), I'd be more than happy to make a house call or two. The problem is that it's too damn easy for people to be dickheads from across the world!
