Yeah, I mean obviously I could snoop into the database if I really had to, but it's a lot of effort and not something I'd do, but as said, the forum software itself just doesn't have that functionality built in. That's not to say that old archaic platforms didn't have that built in, maybe earlier versions of PHPBB did, but that died a long time ago.  :grin:

I used to contribute to the development of a Perl based (the only Perl based) forum platform, and that didn't have the functionality either. That was Free Forum Software - E-Blah Bulletin Board System The only forum platform to have never had a security breach of any kind ever, which is pretty impressive.

It's not popular any more as it's original purpose was to be database-less, as back then, hosting was reasonably cheap, but hosting that came with a database wasn't. So people wanted a forum platform which had it's own text-based database, and the Perl programming language is excellent for ultra fast text file manipulation. It was ideal and there was/is some very large communities still running it. It's dying now because all hosting comes with DB access now.

Well Carol... if this is you being stand offish, I'm not too sure if seeing you in full flow (so to say)  :rolleyes:

I dont get involved any more outside the forums .......... :cool:

We had endless problems with people  just causeing trouble , i could not get my head round it  :undecided: There was some sort of rivalry between forums , we had mods from other forums joining and causeing trouble tho i wont mention the forum involved .

Its so open here , and good  debate is encouraged without offence ever being taken or read the wrong way , its like a breath of fresh air, I had basicaly packed up with the tank and was thinking of just draining it down when for some weird stroke of serendipidy  I founf here... :grin:

I can even say Bottom  :undecided: :grin: :tongue: :smiley: :cool: :cool:

I know a lot of the moderators on the other forums, like Carpious (Keith), and some from TSB and they're all very decent mature people who wouldn't engage in childish inter-forum rivalry. I've known my moderators six months longer than this place existed too, so know them all to be mature individuals who wouldn't rise to bickering or childish antics.

Thanks for the kind words though Carol. I couldn't be happier with the ethos of this place, and now it's to the point where it's self perpetuating. Places like UltimateReef and RCUK to an extent can be pretty contentious at times.

Id say that this was a misguided isolated incidence, that person is no longer a MOD ,its a thankless job  and I would not honestly want to do it again. I think the internet itself  has grown up a lot , I am talking probably 10 years or more back ,crikey now i think about it  , more like 15 ....


Time flies and i think the spying thing was 3 or 4 years ago ?
