Due to what we've experienced because of hackers and security issues, I would like to encourage everyone who is not a Supporting Member to consider becoming one. Now more than ever. When I found out the hackers were in Egypt, it all fell into place and made sense with their anti-American BS. It's like we are fighting "terrorists" of our own on this forum which we call home and we need to keep it the way it is.

I don't like the idea of permanantly losing the ability to post any pics or even lose the freedom to change my avatar at will......but that's just ONE of the possible effects of actions like these.

Thanks.

yes , throwing money at it will make it go away ....does dubya run this site ?
Don't know about Dubya, but

throwing some money into more and updated security might make it go away........for now. apparently Sal had to bring in a security guy (not cheap) and it might only be a "one-time deal."

you guessed it, I'm as mad as HE** that they took Vicky and Natasha from me! :mad2:

Like I mentioned somewhere else, it too bad we can't give those buggers a nice virus! :stirpot:

Wait, can someone explain to me how taking our avatars and picture attachments away will help keep hackers out... I'm confused...:confused: ... I didn't realize how inexpesive it was to become a supporting member though, I'll do it after I get out of college and back to my home comp.


...my name looks naked without the avatar...:eek:

NICO had a huge problem with middle eastern hackers for quite some time. FreshAlloy had a security breach as recently as two weeks ago from a Palestinian group. Updating software, paying server admins, and fixing glitches all costs money.
Nevermind, answered my own question.

Are you telling me that the loss of avatars is due to terrorism?

I thought the Patriot Act protected us from all of that.
