Bullshit. All I have to do is post here saying "apply this
patch and bogus blocks will be sent."
That's like saying you have to be a good programmer to break into
systems... you don't. you just have to have someone write a
program to do it for you... which is how most break-ins happen.
If I'm interested in messing up the servers, then it's in my best
interest to see that as many people who want to can do so --
without having to know how to do it themselves.
Darrell... who's somewhat tempted to actually do so, just to
prove his point..
