I'm very glad that you have returned and I for one thank whoever is responsible for the necessary work to re-activate this board.

Now when some others get registered again, we can go back to all the clowning and serious comments about our Pirates.


The site was hacked. They erased everything.


I bring this up because with all the junk that has been being posted (the links that don't make any sense and the porn) i am afraid there is going to be another attempt at hacking this board. I don't know if you can back up what is on here or not but it is coming up on 1 year that the board was hacked and i am afraid whoever did it is going to try to hack it on or around the same day this year.

Spam is not the same thing as hacking. It's fairly easy to spam this board, as long as you register with BB. Hacking requires the dismantling and destruction of this board, which is what happened last year.

Just by looking at these images, we can see how much more dangerous hacking is when compared to spam.

An easy way to hack a site is to get somebody to open a link through spamming. All those links in those bullsh*t posts makes me think it is somebody trying to hack it. I know this because i did some myspace hacking back a couple years ago and the way i had to do it was i had to send somebody a message and have a fake link in it and when they opened it, it gave me access to all their myspace account information.

Things We've Learned About Colin

* He's written malicious code to obtain people's personal info on myspace.
* He's used a dummy account to artificially inflate bids on items he's selling on eBay.
* He doesn't drink.

My advice, Colin? Start drinking. Now.
