Unfortunately for the kiddies and trolls, we care deeply about our site, and we're taking many measures to ensure that it remains a valuable resource to the KDE community. As of now, things should be mostly back to normal. We've long reenabled posting and we've fixed the Squishdot Name/Email/Title security hole that the kids were exploiting -- Dre reports that there was failed attack attempt no less recently than this morning. On top of this, we're working on some much more strict HTML restrictions and we're also implementing Dot banishments by IP/domain/other for severe cases.
We will eventually have a proper policy in place for dealing with trolls and script kiddies, whether by article marking or deletion, IP banning, or other means. We try to be fair. For example, it's fair to talk about what's wrong with KDE, or what other environments have that KDE does not, as long as there is no obvious abuse. However, what we will not have here is Slashdot-type leniency, for the simple reason that we are not actually Slashdot.
Have any suggestions? Feel free to vent them. If you want to test out potential hacks on an article, please test them in this temporary forum. I'd like to add that we hope to keep the Administrivia to a minimum in the future. You can certainly look forward to much more interesting KDE news and developments on the Dot! Look for some upcoming news on KuickShow...
