This is in regards to my "Hacker Tips" topic.

Recommended Posts

Bushy

I wasn't going to do this, but hey, what the "heck" <--(That's for you Princess). Why not.

This is in regards to my "Hacker Tips" topic.

First off, I didn't notice the porn banner on the page, I was too busy laughing.

Second, it's just some dumb arab reading off a piece of poster board and "pretending" do download Bonzi Buddy off of Kazaa. Bonzi Buddy installs itself on your computer on it's own!! I don't think it's illegal to download it off Kazaa.

Princess, you seriously need to lighten up. It's a joke, ok? A J - O - K - E. You know what that is? It's a thing that's not serious, and intended to make people laugh. It's some guy pretending to be a leet hacker, just for siths and giggles. I mean, wow, oh no, he's teaching our children how to hack microsoft and obtain illegal mp3s. Let me ask you, how many songs have you downloaded off the internet Princess?

I mean, for crying out loud.

Heh, you asked for it, so I complained here. You obviously didn't want to talk about it on AIM. Happy now?

Yeah, I'm pissed, in case you didn't notice. Excuse my frankness.

Oh let's see, where to begin.

1. When a thread is locked, you do not restart it unless it's one of the threads that we restart because of popularity.

2. When you have a problem with something that happens here, we deal with it here, either via PM or through this thread. Don't start a conversation with me on AIM with the first words being "What the hell? Why did you lock my thread?" I didn't really appreciate that especially considering the fact that you had also PM'd me about the same topic here.

3. Drake removed the link because it had a pornographic banner in it. In your new thread you said:

If you want the link from my other topic, email me or something...

Now, having known that you'd already had a thread locked on the same topic, why, did you repost the thread? Why not just email the video to your friends?

4. The video didn't work for me, all I got was the words push play, but I still objected to the topic because even if it was meant as a joke, hacking is illegal.

5.

Second, it's just some dumb arab reading off a piece of poster board and "pretending" do download Bonzi Buddy off of Kazaa. Bonzi Buddy installs itself on your computer on it's own!! I don't think it's illegal to download it off Kazaa.

Well now I'm going to inform you of part of our forum rules regarding your use of the words dumb arab.

Thou shalt not flame!

Even if you don't realize it, you just flamed a culture. That's unacceptable here. You may think that it's funny but there may be someone here that's of Arabic descent and you don't know it and you just insulted them.

6.

Let me ask you, how many songs have you downloaded off the internet Princess?

Actually, all the music that I have on my computer is paid for or has been sent to me by friends that have paid for it. Not that that really pertains to the issue at hand

7.

Princess, you seriously need to lighten up. It's a joke, ok? A J - O - K - E. You know what that is?

Lighten up for doing my job as an admin here? For making a decision that I'm trusted to make? Nah, that's ok. See, I've had a job before where I dealt with stuff that was a LOT more serious than someone's hurt feelings over a locked thread and I've been told a lot worse than the fact that I need to lighten up. And I do know what a joke is. I like jokes. This, eh I don't really care for.

8. GB's 10 Commandments of Posting

Read that.

Chozen, that post was unneccesary in here.

I know, but I'm bored.

Drake removed the link because it had a pornographic banner in it. In your new thread you said

And yet he once made a post link with the exact same content?

Even if you don't realize it, you just flamed a culture. That's unacceptable here. You may think that it's funny but there may be someone here that's of Arabic descent and you don't know it and you just insulted them.

Um, no he never.

If we just break those two words down it's, Dumb = stupid Arab = A name in which people throughout the Middle East and parts of northern africa, e.g Tunisia fall under. It's no different than saying stupid Chozen or foolish Princess.

Slinkys off.

2. Hmm. Why is it such a big deal that I brought the problem to you personally? YOU are the one who locked my thread. Not the forum feedback. And you responded here anyway, and said the exact same stinking thing. Yeah, that makes a ton of sense.

3. I'm not gonna email stuff to all my friends. I tell them about it, and if they want it, THEN I'll email it to them. Excuse me for trying to do things the "right" way.

4. You're kidding me... The video didn't work, all you got was "push play"? Did you actually TRY pushing play?

"even if it was meant as a joke, hacking is illegal"

Ok, then let's not talk about killing and torturing people here. It's illegal!! What about your torture garden? Hmm. Even if it's meant as a joke, torturing is illegal. Give me a break!!

5. I'm not insulting a race. Like drake said. I said he dumb, and he's an arab. Hmm, very insulting to his race. Like he's the representitave of the entire arab nation.

6. "or has been sent to me by friends that have paid for it" Well, in that case, you didn't pay for it, and that's the same as downloading it without paying for it, and if you and your friend have the same song, and only your friend paid for it, it's the EXACT SAME THING AS DOWNLOADING IT OFF KAZAA. You know how that program works? People put files they want to share in a special folder, files that they either paid for or obtained the same way, and other users can browse that folder and copy their files to their hard drive. Same thing as your friend paying for some music and giving you a copy.

And it is relevant to the topic because you're openly bashing what you call "hacking", when you do exactly what the guy in the video was doing. He downloaded Bonzi Buddy, which is free, by the way, using a program that, in and of itself, is completely legal. Nothing illegal was done in that video.

You don't believe me that Bonzi Buddy is free? http://www.bonzi.com/bonzibuddy/bonzibuddyfreehom.asp There. IT'S FREE.

I don't get why you keep saying it's about hacking. The hacking part is a joke. He's not hacking, any more than you actually keep rabid animals in your home to eat people you don't like.

7. Ok, don't lighten up...

8. I've seen a few regulars break rule number 3 many times, and you don't get all up in arms. In fact, I've never seen anybody even care. And I don't see anything in that "10 commandments" list that says anything about reposting something that you locked, and making it more "politically correct".

I didn't see the porn banner the first time. I'm sorry for that. But nothing else about that video breaks ANY rules, nor is illegal in ANY way, and that is why I am pissed. I reposted it, to make YOU happy, saying that if anybody wanted it, I'd send it to them, so this forum is NOT responsible for anything, I am. I even removed the word "hacking", oh, such a bad word. And what, you just lock it again. Thanks.

EDIT: Something else I just realized... That banner at the top? Yeah, the reason I didn't notice the porn the first time is because there WAS NONE. The banner rotates. Now it's some graphics ad. :eek:

He does have a point there Prin.

The swear filter is currently out-of-order, and regulars should be aware of that. Hopefully it'll be sorted soon.

I was gonna say it's probably a rotating banner.

2. Hmm. Why is it such a big deal that I brought the problem to you personally? YOU are the one who locked my thread. Not the forum feedback. And you responded here anyway, and said the exact same stinking thing. Yeah, that makes a ton of sense.

Here's why it's a big deal. There are times that I don't mind people IMing me about stuff here, if I've got the time to take care of it, I will. But then there are times when I'm just online talking to friends and I don't want to deal with GB issues. This may be hard for some people to believe, but my life does not revolve around piddly little messageboard issues. I popped on here for a minute last night, saw a thread that I didn't approve of, and locked it. You then sent me a PM about the thread, and IM'd me on AIM. And then you had the balls to restart the locked thread.

3. I'm not gonna email stuff to all my friends. I tell them about it, and if they want it, THEN I'll email it to them. Excuse me for trying to do things the "right" way.

The right way does NOT constitute restarting a locked thread and advertising to send friends the link that had been removed by a moderator. Why not just talk to your friends on AIM or something and say, "Hey, I found this really cool video, wanna see it?"

4. You're kidding me... The video didn't work, all you got was "push play"? Did you actually TRY pushing play?

Yes I did

Ok, then let's not talk about killing and torturing people here. It's illegal!! What about your torture garden? Hmm. Even if it's meant as a joke, torturing is illegal. Give me a break!!

Ok, let's talk about difference between fantasy and reality shall we? In my opinion, there's a bit of a difference in a thread where you're talking, even as a joke, about something that can happen in real life. In contrast, I really don't see how you could have a genetically altered wampa or rancor eat someone in real life. That's called RP.

5. I'm not insulting a race. Like drake said. I said he dumb, and he's an arab. Hmm, very insulting to his race. Like he's the representitave of the entire arab nation.

Actually that was Chozen. But back to the topic at hand, you could be offending someone here and not realizing it. That was my point

6. "or has been sent to me by friends that have paid for it" Well, in that case, you didn't pay for it, and that's the same as downloading it without paying for it, and if you and your friend have the same song, and only your friend paid for it, it's the EXACT SAME THING AS DOWNLOADING IT OFF KAZAA. You know how that program works? People put files they want to share in a special folder, files that they either paid for or obtained the same way, and other users can browse that folder and copy their files to their hard drive. Same thing as your friend paying for some music and giving you a copy.

I don't do file sharing software though. The 2 or 3 songs that I have that I don't have CDs for have been those "You've got to hear this awesome song" things from my friends

And it is relevant to the topic because you're openly bashing what you call "hacking", when you do exactly what the guy in the video was doing. He downloaded Bonzi Buddy, which is free, by the way, using a program that, in and of itself, is completely legal. Nothing illegal was done in that video.

You don't get it do you. You started a thread called hacking tips. Even if the video may or may not have been funny, I found the thread inappropriate. This site has been hacked before, one of the reasons that I don't find hacking threads very humorous

8. I've seen a few regulars break rule number 3 many times, and you don't get all up in arms. In fact, I've never seen anybody even care.

Then you haven't seen where I've gone and edited F bombs and the like out of posts

And I don't see anything in that "10 commandments" list that says anything about reposting something that you locked, and making it more "politically correct".

Isn't it just common sense to not repost a locked thread?

If I may be allowed to address the issue with the Garden of Torture, seeing as it's my thread and all.

Like Princess said, there is a difference between fantasy and reality. There are extremely strict guidelines on the first page of that thread. The original version was called the House of Pain. And through 500 pages I managed to come up with those guidelines based on old fashion, time-tested experience. The Garden of Torture has been approved by Beeurd and the rest of the administrative staff. Though it is the mod staff's job to keep order on the rest of the site, I take it upon myself to ensure that the guidelines of the GoT are strictly adhered to, and the admins know this. The GoT does not advertise a specific threat to these other members. Hacking does. THAT is the difference.

Drake removed the link because it had a pornographic banner in it. In your new thread you said

And yet he once made a post link with the exact same content?

*runs in late*

Uhhh...that was more like softcore and not as obvious pornography. I also added a warning about it.

*finishes adding his two pointless cents and goes back to downloading a song because it's legal in Canada* :p

You don't get it do you. You started a thread called hacking tips. Even if the video may or may not have been funny, I found the thread inappropriate. This site has been hacked before, one of the reasons that I don't find hacking threads very humorous

Ok, let's see. You locked the thread because you didn't find it humorous? Wow, that's real mod-ly of you.

YOU are the one who doesn't get it.

I do not promote, endorse, of even ENCOURAGE hacking.

It was a joke, IT'S NOT SERIOUS. You understand what a joke is? Obviously not. I don't care if you think it's funny or not, that makes no difference. Lots of other people do, and all I'm trying to do is share it with them.

And yet you insist on locking my second thread which broke no written rule. Common sense? My foot. If you want to enforce something based on what you think is "common sense", maybe you should put it in writing, in which case this wouldn't happen. My second thread was perfectly fine. Since you locked my first one, I had no chance to fix my errors.

If I was in your shoes, I would have edited my post to remove the link because of the pornographic content, and told everyone to contact me if they wanted to see it. That removes the middle-man, GB.net, and takes the responsibility off of your shoulders. Just because YOU don't find it funny is no grounds for you to lock my topic, and say that what I'm doing is illegal and all that, admin or not. Seems to me like you're abusing your power...

And while I'm at it, let's use some of your logic here...

You have 2 or 3 songs eh? Doesn't matter if your friend said "OMG THIS IS SO COOL LISTEN TO IT!!". You didn't pay for it, it's illegal. So since you yourself are guilty of something you so adamantly oppose, I think you should just be quiet.

I say again, that video had nothing to do with hacking. You can't even hack using Kazaa. It's a freaking gag for crying out loud, the guy is a nutbag, or he was put up to it by his friends, or he did it cause he was bored. He used a legal program to download free, legal software. I don't care what he calls it, it's legal and is NOT HACKING. When will you get that through your head?

Just an opinion and observation...

Bushy, you weren't going to get your way before, and I have a feeling you're just digging your grave deeper and deeper. That kind of attitude never got anyone anywhere here. Trust me from experience. LOTS of experience.

I hear you, and I know, but stepping down is not what I do. I feel strongly about this, and will continue to argue about it, admin or no admin. The fact that she can do whatever she damn well pleases changes nothing. Her actions were unwarranted and unnecessary, and that is why I am pissed off.

Thanks though...

I didn't say backing down was in your nature. It's not in mine, and it's not in Princess's. Which is what helped push displeasure in my direction, back when I was still a mod, especially when she and I agreed. And we agree in this instance. It might have been different had you addressed the issue calmly and prepared to acknowledge that you MIGHT have made a mistake. There's no shame in saving your own butt, trust me.

Unwarranted and unncessary because I found a thread calling hacking tricks inappropriate for a message board even if it did contain a joke? I don't think so. And it'd be wise to listen to Pod's advice because I'm starting to get a teensy bit ticked off at you

Consider this Prin..."Hotel del Muertos"...From the title...A Hotel...Death...etc. Perhaps death should not be discussed on a message board? Obviously death is a sensitive subject. But it's a 'game' so it can stay. Obviously a 'game' has nothing to do with a 'joke'.

Bah, hacking. Dling stuff off Kaaza isn't hacking. Hacking isn't illegal either. Hacking other people's stuff is, but you can hack your own stuff all you want or other folks with permission. You know the government hires people to hack stuff all the time? Sure, they try to hack their own systems to see if they can get in and find flaws in security, they hack stuff from foreign countries to find bad guys and their info... Companies like Micro$oft do it too.

And, uh, hacking isn't really the sort of topic to make a joke unacceptable, the porn banner, yes, hacking joke no. In that case, better illegalize leet speach, the language of wannabe hackers world wide.

Now, if he'd posted a list of ways to attack a message board, or a list of warez sites or something, I could see it, but a joke about hacking that didn't even involve hacking (which was the joke, if you didn't get it)...c'mon guys! Sheesh.

Lay off the new guy, huh? I kinda liked him, and you guys (Prin and Pod) berating him all the time over silly things is gonna scare him away.
