    ATTENTION MEMBERS
    Our "News Anchor", Fuitybud, will be useing HxxP rather than the usual HTTP for posting links to news articles. I would like to thank Fuitybud for his aid in protecting our membership with this.

    Quote:
    Here are some of the uses:

    * To avoid passing the HTTP referer header which would reveal the referring web site to the target. (MP in this case)

    * Making sure that a user doesn't accidentally click on a potentially harmful link, in applications that automatically recognize links in plain text.

    * To bypass overzealous link spam protection in, for example blog comments.

    * Avoiding automated web crawlers from following the links. While effective, legitimate web crawlers can be avoided through the use of a robots exclusion standard on the target web site. To avoid advancing the search engine rank of the target web site, nofollow attributes can be used instead.

    For a user to follow the links, it is usually necessary to manually copy-paste the link onto the web browser's address bar and replace the 'x'es with 't's.

    It is possible for anyone to post an article or any other link where the 'site' is actually LEO built, they list on a site like this one and they know all the hits the site gets are from people on this forum and they have your ISP, be careful out there people.

    That is why I do not click on a link from this site (MP) to any another. Always the chance for a "set up" website.

    HUH and here i had thought thats why if we were posting a link to an outside site we were just to leave off the HTTP and the www and just leave the rest so it could be copied and pasted into any browser and then linked to like in the funny videos thread. Either way im happy im safe :D

    Same same dubb'... "IMHO" ALL the members would benefit from the safety, security.. "IF" we could get everyone to post their links in that manner.

    Hick, is it possible to filter live links out and auto replace with a non working link? a bit like how swear words are filtered out and **** is in its place, could something silmilar be done to web addresses? taking the http or www and ****bla bla.com shows as a simple line of text and the user then c&p, it would stop innocent people who havnt read this or the site rules from posting live links and protect members without people even knowing.

    :D :eek:
    I'll look into it hippy. I would "think" there is a processs/filter plugin for the vb boards, but don't recall ever running across one. And I have belonged to sites that would ban a member for posting a direct link.
    I'm glad to see some concern about it from 'some' members. In most cases, when this subject is brought up, it is met with opposition and negative replies.
    When you think about it, it isn't a difficult nor time consuming process, to simply c/p an addy into a "new" browser window or tab.

    I did find an option to "disallow" auto parsing of links, but MarP(Administrative Options only) will have to impliment it. :)

    what about links to a part of this forum ??? can we just post those or do we need to still keep out the http and the www stuff ??? I would assume that if it is for this site to this site it would be alright ....right ?

    i do however think that is a good idea either way ....

    Id have to think that so long as the link was back to our site it wouldn't be a problem, I'm under the impression that this is for the links that go to other sites like you tube, MySpace. and other MJ sites ( like there really is any better :D) or places that will track where and what sites you visit or have in the same browser window.

    How do you turn on a computer??

    Why with promises of ram upgrades and proving to it that you have the biggest processor of course :D :rofl:

    leo can't set up a site where if you click from mp it'll log you. i mean it can log you but nothing there can be used against you unless you fill out any type of information on that certain site.

    ex: Win free beans, fill this form, need address, name, DL #. wutever

    there are too much public traffic that a simple click of a website is not enough as incriminating evidence.

    by clicking, ip is normally log but **** if a google user that was researching for school clicks the same link, he's in it too.

    I heard of a federal sting called {candyman} where perverts were looking at child-porn. feds ran the site and arrested anyone who looked at the pics. I didnt follow the prosecutions of those arrested but I do know for a fact it happened. If LEO wants to bust you, they WILL bust you. I'd suggest you just dont give them a reason to want too, eh?? :hubba:

    Everyone needs to keep their selves safe as well as all our friends here on the site. I love this site and would hate to see anyone get in any trouble. Just play it safe, unfortunately that is why there are rules, because the man can‘t stay out of peoples business. You would think they would have more important things to do, like protect our families, and catching people who are killing people and leave all the pot smokers alone. How can a plant put here by GOD be illegal? I never did understand that.
