Easy Sticky

([msg=2113]see Easy Sticky[/msg])

I allowed people to sticky topics here. That way the mods don't have to check every topic to see if its a hacking book. But remember - ONLY hacking/computer books get stickied. If you abuse it you lose it.
Please sticky the proper books!

Seriously...? You did not expect a site about security to protect against XSS? Or were you fooled by the title: "Hackthissite.org"?

I'm just gonna say this since the necro already happened and it's on my mind.

I know it was a bit of a ridiculous post, but I like that this was done. It could have been done better, but I'm going to look past all that and just be glad that this is one person whose first post is a security test. Not only is that way better than it could have been; it's also just refreshing to me.

While I get where you're coming from, I think it's more appropriate to encourage this in our community driven learning environment.

^This makes me feel like a hypocrite for what I said. He's got a point. It is to be encouraged not ridiculed.
Also, he only has to get it right [or lucky] once, and he gets into the Hall of Fame.

A necro is when you make a post on a thread that died way too long ago. The post you responded to was from 2008.

Necro is short for necro-posting, which as parakkafaith said is raising threads from the dead. The term originates from the manner in which a necromancer would raise people from the dead.

Nekros means "Something dead" in ancient Greek, so yeah...

Aye, e'rrybody, if you can't think of anything on topic to say, don't say anything at all. A'ight? A'ight.
