Why this forum sucks:

Recommended Posts

I have to criticize a couple of things:

  • Plaintext passwords: Passwords should never be transmitted in plaintext! Especially not when your domain clearly has a TLS certificate. Yet it's happening even when you're on the HTTPS page.
  • HTTP dy default: Almost all links on this site appear to be HTTP, leaking your cookies, making session hijacking child's play.
  • Using captchas during registration and then still requiring manual moderator approval: Super annoying.

I noticed there''s a lot of spam posts on this forum as well. My first post had to be approved, I don't know how other spammers get away with putting links in their comment.

Also, yes, a SSL certificate is the least to be expected.

This site has had an SSL cert since day 1. No idea why it wasn't active since the latest upgrade, but I've re-enabled it, so it's SSL by default again.

All 'spammers' are verified exactly the same way as everyone else. They just didn't spam in their first post.
