  • This sounds like those exploits to get around the images that contain the magic word that websites want you to type in, so I blogged the story over at O'Reilly [].
    • I don't think buu crossed any terrible lines, like some people are accusing him of doing. That aside, I'm curious what exactly you meant in your O'Reilly post when you wrote: A poster calling himself only "BUU" I'm curious why it matters what his perlmonks nickname is. I call myself only "japhy"; what's the big deal? It sounds like you're trying to create a sinister atmosphere.

      • I only say that because I have no other way to identify him. You should notice that I also try to attribute quotes and code to real names in my other blogs. I tend to that here either too, if I know who people are or can find out their name.

        I don't mind the use of handles or nicknames, but I think people should own up to who they are. I certainly put my real name with my posts.
