    I'm sure a few modifications could make it easier for moderators to see whether or not there's an img tag in a post.
    Yes, look at the source code

    Users report it, though.

    If so, maybe they'll all move over here!

    Regarding a post on the first page, I don't understand how simply putting an image in a post can also put a cookie on my computer. I'm familiar with using JavaScript and PHP to do so... does that mean you can also set cookies using image headers? That seems pretty dodgy.

    Like the one above? Lol.

    Interestingly enough - I visited DP yesterday to see what the fuss was about, it being the only site that I visited outside of my normal set of sites, and I ran a spyware check on my system (I was just about to check my bank details), and lo and behold - I was infected by a high-level spyware program pretending to be an .ico file.

    If I did pick it up from DP - Wow. Talk about dirty.

    headers in the file itself? no.

    but your web server sends exactly the same type of headers to the client (including cookies) as it does when sending html pages. you can do this by either webserver configuration (i.e., .htaccess for apache) or by using a simple script.

    Careful with that DP thread. One of the moderators is banning accounts of anyone that speaks poorly of Shawn.

    Now we Know why Digital Point has got a big name for itself.The owner i beleive is giving hes own website a bad rep. (Only if the accusations are true)I dont think its bigger then sitepoint though. LOL. Digital Point is crazy over there.It feels like a circus everytime i go to the site.The entire website is like a free for all.This will be intresting to see what happens though.Ebay has tons of money there not afraid to sit down in court to sue people stealing money.

    I don't have all the different laws memorized, but yes, it does look like you're right in that I referenced the wrong law. The one I was probably thinking of is Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act of 1996. Particularly the language stating that:

    "no provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider."

    I believe that's the law all (or most) providers use when defending themselves of liability due to what their members or customers do online.

    Maybe greed? Or, maybe his mortgage is about to reset soon? Gambling debts? My point is, nobody really knows.

    We don't even know if he's guilty. You know, "innocent until proven guilty" and all that. Well, "innocent until proven guilty" doesn't seem to be how it works in all cases, but at least in this case it will.

    I think you are referring to me Dan, and yes, I am banned for 1 month for a question not directly accusing the admin...

    I think I was little wrong when I asked "Who is the culprit, Shawn or the members"..

    Either the question is bad for them or good, I know I speeak beyond limit so I will accept the penalty...

    But yes, be careful...

    It's obviously not only you. Just about everyone who didn't particularly speak positively of Shawn was banned.

    Doesn't matter. Getting banned at DP is like getting yelled at by a 2-year old. It kind of makes you laugh.

    Wow! It's amazing what someone will do to make a little more income on top of what
    they are already earning. It's clear Shawn is making a lot of money from DP and has
    been for a long time now... if this is true it's clearly just greed.

    DP seems to be a gathering place for a lot of bad people and they seem to take over a
    lot of the forum. That's why I like SP better, the community is much better.

    Anyway, I hope Shawn get's what he deserves - one way or another!

    I've been thinking, couldn't they use the forum cookies to stuff?

    Also, I think DP has passed it's sell by date, just look at the site it's self and the logo, looks like it was made from a 'B' movie made in the seventies.

    The whole site just does not look like a business compared to SP. To me I think (and looks like) Shawn is just in for the money and thats it, shows no passion for updates, selling books or posting articles.

    Shame really, the more money that site could have made through better managment just like SP.

    One thing you don't get on DP but do get on SP are moderators telling you not to talk to them in a certain way, cause they are moderators (aka threatening you) and another perk of SP are posts you make that get deleted (you can start the countdown till this one is gone) because a moderator had a different opinion on the subject which means your opinion is wrong.

    Shows you how easy it is to point at someone else's yard in order to take attention away from the mess of your own.

    ...I find the moderation here is much better than over at DP. I really think you
    need to take a look over there, you'll find people selling products they don't
    have rights to, website sales going bad and a ton of blackhat methods going on.

    That kind of crap shouldn't be allowed on a forum and I'm glad the mods don't
    allow that here. And if you don't like the moderation here, there is always DP
