This site is build on openstandards with opensource software and an openmind. That is why all content is licenced under the open content licence.
Drupal evolved towards this from a blog alike system 10 years ago, a content type with user generated comments below. Back then everybody knew that you should filter User Generated Content and stripe the HTML if you cared about the site. Many other systems up to today however do not filter UGC good enough; user signups, search input and many other ways a user can give input ot the system.
Now Drupal is talking to other systems, combining data from multiple sources, devs still need to understand that one should ***never*** trust input data, no matter if the source is another database or a user.
Because, what could possibly go wrong with just displaying this data directly or injecting it in the database? Why should you "checkplain" the TXT fields in zone of a domain? Why?
Op de uitleg pagina staat hoe men aan de data komt. En dat wist ik niet, het is gewoon open(bare) data.
Meer informatie over de data kan je vinden op NDW.
Two friends were funny enough to take this from "a joke" to "a practial joke". Rachel and Stefan created "Tour de Drupal", a community movement to get as many Drupalista as possible to visit DrupalCon Amsterdam 2014 in 330 days by bike!
There is bound to be more funny stuff coming from the community in Amsterdam, I hope to be involved in some of this and will post it here as well. There is for example talk of an Eurosongfestival with Drupal songs and a revival of the Kitten Killers so bring your guitar as well.
So in the closing ceremony we now have lists of the amount Megabits used, liters coffee drunken and number of flat tires… :-)
No-one knows how the police officers find their way back to the exact stadium in which they were born.
The site you are watching is rather old. The first posting is from 2002 and that is only because I deleted the database, the first posts were from around 2000.
So I have seen lots of spam attacks on my site, up to the point that I deleted the posisbility to add comments. I know about captchas and bayesian fingerprinting services like mollom, but this is my site with my rules. You want to expres your opinions, hike to facebook, twitter or start your own blog. My site, my rules.
However, back in 2006 I had comments on and there was a posting with some rather lame comments ("yes, I agree, Drupal is great"). Never gave it much thought. However, there was also a link in the users name. ... Indeed spam links. :-(
Now read this mail I got the other day:
Funny right? They have been spamming the internet for ages and now they found out that the postings they have paid for to be placed on sites like mine, are contra productive for their Google ranking and now they wanted to delete the posts!
Here is my answer, lets see what will be happening :-)
(ps I deleted the spams all the same :-)
