Besides, spammers aren't usually the smartest people.

Well, they might not be very smart, but they pay smart people. Any filter designed now will most likely be useless in 1-2 months. However, as long as they are useful, it never hurts having them.

I think Novus' one is a very good idea, although it might be hard to implement.

The hackers managed cause www.bluesecurity.com to be inaccessible for from May 1st to May 4th. But it’s now up again.

Seems that it's down again...

Anyway, I'd like to know exactly how that software works. If it sends few messages to the spammers, it will do more harm than good, because the spam-senders will know that your e-mail is active.

First, Pages of Now and Forever used to have at least a large fraction of the dialogue from SC2 stored at their site. As far as I can tell this is no longer their, though it may be new computer/brower trouble. If any one knows where I could find an archive of conversations, preferably both PC and 3DO, but I'll settle for anything, please reply.

Yep, most of the Pages of Now and Forever's links are broken.
Anyway, the dialogue is stored in one of the data files that UQM installs - I can't remember which one now. To read it, change the file's extension from .uqm to .zip and unzip it. All the dialogue should be there, in standard text files (.txt).

So, this game is like both Escape Velocity and Star Control 2? I've definitely got to buy it.

About Starforce: Never heard about it before, but it's now #1 in my list of things to remove from my computer. (Well, it was till I removed it Wink). I've found this page: http://www.glop.org/starforce/remove.php, with information about it; it's not a very good site but the "unofficial removal method" works (at least for me).

They would probably enslave the humans first - we are the weakest race after all.

Let's see... First skin him (putting tobasco sauce on the wounds, like Terrell so wisely suggested  Smiley), then impale him and burn him slowly. I think that would do Grin.

And publishing pictures of minors when their legal guardians have not signed releases is a good way to get your ass in court- so are veiled threats.

Heh, burning and skinning people are better ways to get yourself detained... Smiley
