I think Max has that one already taken care of, Margo. The registration does not allow you to register under a name that's already being used. If you change your name on your registration, it changes your name on all the messages you've posted as a registered member. Max is a pretty smart cookie.
I'll be more impressed if he can get my esthetic nonbreaking space in....

Margo, if you post as a member but have changed your cookie to a new nickname, all your past posts will follow that change of name. You can't do a one off posting that way.

Max, there is also something else you could do, and I'm assuming you know a little about programming and CGI scripts already.

You know how on CGI input forms (ie: Feedback Forms sent via Recipient's email, etc.) that are on many business related websites, there is a statement you can add (which is invisible to the sender, but not to the recipient or the recipient's log) that gives you the sender's IP address as well as the browser they're using and other info.

Would it not be possible to create a small script that logs all IP addresses, and then when you have spammers on here, you can block their IP addresses...thus preventing them from posting? While it won't deter someone who is determined to post here (using an IP masking program or other hacking program) it might be worth a thought.....or is this too radical as far as censorship goes.....?

We do track IP addresses, and a few other things as well. Its not so easy to block them though, cause many IP's are dynamically generated each time one connects.

The Login (reset cookie) and Logout feature lets you share a computer with another user.

I like guest, let me change that.

Joe and everyone, this is just a temp solution till I can do it right. Did you read my first post or just jump down here and started posting? TEMPORARY! Don't get used to this and don't bother making recommendations. I'd sure rather be spending my time doing my real job and maybe something like, say... discussing music? I spent 2 hours this morning dealing with this and the NMPA. This is not at all what I want to be doing with my time. Yada, yada, yada, I just deleted the last few lines of this post which really may have caused a fear of the future of the mudcat. See what your doing to me? What the hell is going on around here lately? Everyone just chill and talk about music for christ sakes.

most people don't try to carry guns on board airplanes, but we ALL have to go thru metal detectors now because of a few...most programmers don't write viruses, but we all need virus detection software because of a few...most people don't run red lights...(no, cancel that one *grin*...they do around HERE)...anyway, I guess it comes with growing and being 'open'...you always get a few who 'don't play well with others', so Max has to spend time making it more difficult to mess with folks.
...And I will be eternally grateful that he is tolerant and open in his approach, and only does what seems to be required...VERY little here ever gets censored or stopped.

Guest sounds better than non-member. I tprefer that we should be able to vary our names from time to time, post anonymously, etc if we want. How about not allowing registered members names to be used without a cookie? When members post from another computer, they know they will have to vary their name somewhat, but they can sign their message at the bottom - and we can make up out own minds whether or not they are who they say they are.

I think the danger to the community was less than it would have been in many other communities due to the nature of the people that make up the Mudcat. Our ability to draw together limits the amount of damage an outsider can cause (I hope). Remember, we have a channel of communication in the personal messages that is unavailable to outsiders. If you have any doubts, you might want to use that channel to contact individuals to verify anything that needs verification.

Mbo, in Win98 you may go to Windows Explorer, open \Windows\Internet Temporary Files folder, then Edit/SelectALL, point to the whole blue area and click right, then Delete. You'll be asked wether you want to delete your cookies too. Simply you say No, and everything is wiped out except cookies. If Yes, you delete everything including cookies. In win95 you are asked this for EACH cookie. In other systems (Mac, Linux) I don't know.

I am a new kid on the block who has recieved help and advice here, from total strangers without question or cost.

When I have contributed what may be of help to others, they have said "thank you".

I enjoy the wit, widom and humanity of this site.

I am sorry that you, the regulars, have had problems. The post by Aine (how do you make an acute accent?)points to the cause...there are some sick people around.

Thank you for this site, the sad, pitiful ones will not drive me away

Viva music.... Viva humour.....et Mudcat Slante..Johnp

Hullo Brendy...Yes I am a member but I usually work the net with cookies disabled because I don't like the idea of my hard drive being slowly eaten away without my permission.

I fully understand if the saints who run this site decide to make cookies a condition of access...spammers and other anti socials can then be traced.

In the meantime, I reckon ignoring them is the best policy. They feed on reaction...so if they get none they will go elsewhere.

I haven't forgotten the Thackery lyrics, a friend is scanning this very night...I hope.....I will send them on as soon as he finishes.

lang may your lum reek....johnp

dear max and all, ...one of the things I looked forward to on New Year's Eve was watching the Dali Lamai on CNN talking to Larry King... which I did, of course. I think that technology can be used to reduce suffering and should be...to the person or person's using the gargoyle persona, please stop...if you would be a real person to any of us on the forum we might be able to persuade you to join the humane of the human race...I long for the opportunity because this community means a great deal to me at this moment in my life
and I wonder what the 17th karmapa will say...with sorrow and hope...harp

Hi Max!

I got a telephone message from Fergus McMucklefutch in Glasgow today. He asked me to warn you that someone's been using his voice on Mudcat Radio. Do you know anything about this?

from the help page in my security/cookie-crunching program..(AtGuard)....I can set it to block cookies from ALL sites except those I specifically allow, such as Mudcat...there are other programs which do similar things...

"Cookies are bits of information that web servers store on your computer for their later use. Web servers can use cookies to keep track of how many times you've visited and when, and what sort of information you've been surfing for on their site. They can even use cookies to pass that information on to other web servers, such as advertisement servers. On the positive side, cookies can be used to store your own web site configuration, to remember items placed in your "shopping cart" at an online shopping site, or to store account and password information for subscription sites. You may not want to block all cookies, which is why AtGuard lets you permit or block cookies on a per-site basis."

Jon. It was interesting what you did up there. Could you have written Kat's name in the same way though?
Just curious

Brendy, seeing that things have got this far, the simple answer is yes, I have the knowledge necessary to do that... I don't go in for real hacking but someone with that sort of knowledge is likely to be able to do more... Some computer companies spend fortunes in trying to defeat hackers but it is a fact that if somebody is determined enough, almost everything can be broken into.

The real point here to me it seems is the cost, time, effort... that somebody would have to put into making a site completely secure and let's face it this is a non profit organisation run by the good will of a coupe of people.

Maybe some things do/ did need fixing but overall, some of it comes down to us simply ignoring certain posts. If no attention was given, many of the "hacking types" would simply move on to somewhere esle to get thier kicks...

No, when cookies are enabled then your name auto appears,but when disabled you have to type it in the box..the prog adds the guest bit.

I changed between messages to check test the system.

I guess what is happening with the whole issue is that some person or group has their own agenda and is trying to impose it on to a virtual folk club. Sort of internet imperialism. There are plenty of other places to play such games so as I suggested earlier, ignore the rude and loony, they will get bored and look elsewhere for reaction.Boys aged between 14 and 17 often play these games, especially those without friends. A few never grow out of it. Sorry to ramble on . Time for a Guinness and a drop of Chieftans!

I read through your post quickly, John, and I had to double check. I thought you said "they will get bored and look elsewhere for Boys aged between 14 and 17" It must have been the mistook of not putting a space after "reaction".
Sound familiar?.....ssssshhhhh!!

I haven't read all the above messages, so excuse me if I duplicate someone else's suggestion. Members with registered names could have to also have to login with a chosen secret password if they want to use the name. It could be made possible to do this from any computer, not only the one holding the member's cookie. Anybody trying to use a registered name without the login would get a message that the name was in use and that they need to choose another.

The problem I have had is more a matter of getting a response from Max than anything else and I wouldn't worry too much about the security issues mentioned or linked to by "thread watcher".

In case anybody is worried, I must make it clear that the issue concerning member details such as address and phone number was closed and although a hacker could probably find them, it is beyond the reach of most of us (and that includes me) and I do not have and didn't look at anyother member detials except mine and the member I asked to help when I seemed to be unable to persuade Max that there was a real problem.

There are still what I consider to be minor security (this post may demonstrate one) problems here but overall, I believe the site is secure.

Jon
