Seriously, this forum needs to be upgraded.

Also, it could use a Slashdot-like auto-moderation system, so all the buzz, trolls, spam & some scammers are automatically filtered out.
It's too loud here to even discuss seriously about anything. A bunch of schoolkids, spammers, scammers & other screwed people are making this place miserable. It should be fixed long ago.

I don't know about SMF, but surely there is some plugin like that avaiable for PHPBB.

Would you filter out "some scammers", but leave others behind? Or would you just get rid of them all, especially Bruce Wagner?
According to NIST and ECRYPT II, the cryptographic algorithms used in Bitcoin are expected to be strong until at least 2030. (After that, it will not be too difficult to transition to different algorithms.)

I could be slightly more impressed had your avatar not been replaced.  But only slightly, and not a whole lot more amused.  Ach...back to work.

If bitcointalk.org didn't want to be hacked, they wouldn't leave their system open like this.

1. I haven't investigated Bruce Wagner enough to have a 100% opinion, however after doing some reading i think there is at least 63% probability that he is a scammer. That is my, subjective opinion however.

2. Check out yourself how the slashdot moderation system works. It really nicely mods out any spamming/scamming practices very quickly. I think it is the best on the net.

That's true, I really like Slashdot.

It is more appropriate to say the avatar was "covered up" by something else. With CSS/DHTML you can position floating elements wherever you want on the page.

Is there something with me that I've intentionally left js enabled and have been reloading forum pages to see all of the wacky hijinks?

That might be beer on my pants, or I could've peed myself from the hilarity of the first refresh after my initial WTF.

Back to reloading pages. Oh Cos, you so silly. Where's mah Jello Puddin'!?

I'd just love to know what immense level of immaturity it took to keep the site offline for almost 2 full days after this little putzy Javascript-hack (BTW, putting a Flash animation on your page does NOT open your server up to hacks, WTF kind of cause/effect misconception is that?)... I mean, talk about a great way to drive the value of Bitcoin through the floor: take its #1 communications hub and keep it offline for a few days. Hello? I'd've been glad to help out with getting the server back online if the admins here couldn't figure it out... *rolleyes.tga*

And we're still using the same archaic SMF version? *facepalm.wmf*
