I got kinda heated when I first saw this but now I am 100% in support of this as long as the fines stay that reasonable. In the United States the courts would usually levy life-ending or business-bankrupting fines for cyber infractions but if the max penalty for trolling was €320 then I really wouldn't care.
Not to mention that the director of IT at one particular building is such an idiot that he couldn't even keep kiosk computers in the lobby running for more than 2 weeks at a time before they got virus infestations and permanently bluescreened. Had he never heard of Deepfreeze? I was only 20 years old at the time but could have run circles around him with a little common sense.
Back in 2007 my friend and I worked in a crap call center for them and we got bored and found out that all of the shares for all call centers CORPORATION WIDE had effective permissions set to "EVERYONE" meaning that any one person could modify everyone else's files. This included IE favorites and any files on the roaming profile, as well as drop zones for operating system ISOs and installer programs used by IT. Would have been extremely easy at that point to steal everyone's password in the entire building, or just destroy everything, and wreak havoc corporation wide. They also only had restrictions on executables locally but you could craft up batch files to circumvent that. We did the right thing and tried to tell them but he got suspended over it and they threatened to make us "disappear" if we told anyone so I just walked out that day. At any other company all operations would have stopped until this was fixed as it was a severe issue but apparently it was just business as usual for them. A move like this doesn't surprise me. Their IT management is a complete joke. They can play games as much as they want but this is how IT debacles like AOL's internal problems get started.
It's all fun and games and a super awesome idea until you get your door kicked in because someone uses your net to download CP or fraud a bunch of credit cards. You think about these things way differently when it actually happens to you. This is a terrible idea.
I thought I was bad at running a joke out too long. The humour on this ran out at about 8:30 this morning. A few stories of this would have been acceptable, not pages of it. It's like people posting all day on Facebook that they are pregnant; it's just not that funny.
I usually try to stay offline as much as possible and avoid all unnecessary human interaction on this day. Most of the crap that people do isn't even funny; it is just annoying.
I filed in late January and they told me at that time that the IRS wasn't accepting education credit submissions until late February and would delay refunds for about 2 months. Interesting that they now come out and say it was a software glitch.
If life gave you lemons, find someone whom life gave Vodka to and party!
If I've fallen asleep at Ozzfest because of exhaustion after hours on end spent in a mosh pit, and could stay asleep even with bass rattling my teeth and my internal organs, I'm sure these guys could fall asleep after a few days even with "loud" music on.
Heh. A family member of mine is named Madeline and when we tried to use that as her first name when registering for hotmail like 8 years ago it said the name was "inappropriate". Go Microsoft.
Just remember to use the BCC line. I think it's hilarious when people send out email lists like that. I would also say to mail it compliantly, but the mail gets filtered if you're Can-Spam Compliant, so just do whatever. There's nothing wrong with a little mail.
enc.conf writes "Google's GMail security hole allows an attacker to inject a filter on behalf of a user while he/she is loggedin in gmail account and visiting evil site exploiting this hole. There is already one victim who published his story of fiasco which led him to loosing his domain name and damaging his business."
