I agree. Some of us aren't exactly the most knowledgable on computer
security. That's why we are subscribed to this list. Yes, maybe this guy
doesn't know what he is doing but who cares? What effect does it have on
you? I have a WinXP box for video games and junk and it's probably wide
open. If someone wants to hack my box and check out my counter-strike
config, have at it. Like I have anything worth knowing about on my computer
anyway. Maybe some good porn but that's about it. Anyway, sorry for the
rant, but you shouldn't beat down on someone just because they don't know
what they are doing, much less make it public.
