MCS Identity Theft

I’ve taken steps to prevent any kind of identity theft on MCS.  It would appear that someone figured out that you could just type anything you wanted into the “display name as” field on your profile page, so while that’s still true, we won’t be using that data anywhere of note.

I’ve also linked all the commentor’s UIDs to their public profile page, where it’ll tell you their UID (again?) a link to their home page (again!) and will tell you exactly how many posts they’ve posted.  For the people that haven’t posted anything, it’ll actually tell you how many posts there are on MCS on the whole.

Anyways, that’s my good deed for the night.

Oh, and hotlinking is back on for google reader and bloglines.  lemme know if anything hinky goes on.

    I’ll acknowledge that there’s a difference between actively being malicious and actively being a douche, but really…where’s the limit? The clicks can’t be worth all that, can they?

    I’m not sure sure. If malice is the desire to harm, and harm encompasses psychological damage and wrongdoing . . . from the standpoint of semantics, I respectfully disagree.

    I won’t even link you to his penis.
