Submitted by Alexander Sotirov
Alexander Sotirov (666) writes "The Pwnie Awards are an award ceremony celebrating the achievements and failures of security researchers during the last year. It will take place during the BlackHat/DefCon conference in Las Vegas next week. The awards are both serious and funny, featuring categories such as Best Server-Side Bug, Mass 0wnage, Lamest Vendor Response and of course Best Song! Slashdot readers are invited to submit nominations. What is your favorite security bug?"

Journal: What is the Profanity Blacklist?

Journal by Profanity Blacklist

The Profanity Blacklist is a way to avoid, at least partially, profanity and vulgarity on Slashdot. To use it, mark Profanity Blacklist as a friend and in your profile set "Foe of Friend" to a negative number. This will lower the score of posts of users that have posted with profanity or vulgarity.

Real programmers don't bring brown-bag lunches. If the vending machine doesn't sell it, they don't eat it. Vending machines don't sell quiche.
