To be honest, I saw this day coming for a long time. I knew that the more people used scripts on their profiles, sooner or later some hacker will catch on and try to do something dirty with it.
I knew that as soon as that happened, scripts on profiles would be permanently banned and all I can do is accept that. Because as a programmer, it’s exactly what I would do if I were in the staffs situation.
In fact, I would have never even allowed scripts on profiles in the first place as I understand the numerous security threats it posed. That’s why I refused to tell people how to mod their profile.
Blocking scripts isn’t hard either. The forum already used it so banning it from profiles was just one click away for the KYM developer. If he wanted to end the madness after seeing it abused, he could do so after one lunch break…and so he did.
Oh well. It’s only a profile.
