what stops people from using metafilter like metababy? April 17, 2000 11:27 PM   Subscribe

what stops people from using metafilter like metababy? Is it understood? Is some sort of Hive Mind at work here? Although you retain final edit control Matt, what stops someone from entering malicious code or javascript that provides information about members to a second source unnoticed? Is there some sort of preventative measure I don't know about?

Just seeing what's possible. Security issues clear yet Matt?

Err... as I'm talking to myself, just wanted to point out that for obvious reasons I'm not doing this on the main page...

Yes, Neale, you *were* doing that on the main page; and the webcam picture is hanging over the next 3 comments...

But not the main main page. One more reason for an edit function :)

i've often wondered the same thing neale. but the signal to noise ratio on metafilter is definitely not what it used to be, in my opinion. i'm convinced it's just a matter of time and increased popularity before metafilter either becomes impossible to read without moderation or something. i just hope it never gets as bad as slashdot.
