I'm not a lawyer but...[edit]

http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/18/1030.html It seems to be that it's all about breaking into so-called "protected computers". Now, does Conservapedia's server fall under either of the following?

  • (A) exclusively for the use of a financial institution or the United States Government, or, in the case of a computer not exclusively for such use, used by or for a financial institution or the United States Government and the conduct constituting the offense affects that use by or for the financial institution or the Government; or
  • (B) which is used in interstate or foreign commerce or communication, including a computer located outside the United States that is used in a manner that affects interstate or foreign commerce or communication of the United States;

Now, even without that, the thing is still all about unauthorized access. As anyone is fully authorised to view web-accessible content that isn't protected by htacess basic authentication or a higher form of security... well, go figure. Scarlet A.pngpathetic 10:41, 16 September 2009 (UTC)

But anyway, it's worth having this info readily available by the relevant article on the subject. Scarlet A.pngpathetic 12:32, 16 September 2009 (UTC)
Does this mean that I can no longer "bump" this site ? NotHuman 13:47, 16 September 2009 (UTC)

proposed additions[edit]

how about a "favorite script" section, which would be purely academic and we wouldn't endorse using any of them.

something like:

while true; do curl -s 'http://www.conservapedia.com/Law_Terms_X' | grep -o 'This .* times.'; done

I've never used that and I don't know if that works and I don't recommend using it, but it might make for an interesting section. — Sincerely, Neveruse513 (Dictated But Not Read) / Talk / Block 13:39, 16 September 2009 (UTC)
