Attention all members:

Please check your public profile page (e.g. http://mises.org/Community/members/DanielMuffinburg/default.aspx) and check to see if there is a huge "ENTER" button in the middle of it or if it is otherwise "hacked." Report any cases of this to this thread and your profile page will be fixed.

Thanks,
Daniel, Master Spam Slayer Lvl VIII

So it is hacked if there is ENTER button? Or not? (sorry, bad english, couldn't quite understand) blush I don't have that button.

If I wrote it more than a few weeks ago, I probably hate it by now.

What happens when you click "ENTER"?

I didn't feel like trying, to be honest.

I suggest you don't click ENTER.

Mine was hacked, now apparently fixed. Thank you all.

Regards, onebornfree.

P.S. is it normal , with the new software here , for me to have 2 completely different text boxes to fill out when replying to posts [every time!] ?

[If I only fill out 1 of 2 boxes the post does not go through. If both boxes do not exactly match in text content etc. - likewise, or post self edits to something I don't want.]

MacOS 10.5, Safari browser.

Onebornfree, can you post a screen shot of it?

OK here goes [assuming you meant the double text box, and not the "ENTER" thingy]

Thanks I Ryan and Daniel.  Mine's fixed now.

Sphairon - did you mention somewhere that you got a blank private message from user "ShKPf2sDq"?  Me too.  Probably related.

onebornfree - I sometimes get two boxes like that, but it's intermittant, and if it happens, I just go back and click on reply again.  Then usually there will only be one box (the new one).  The quote button and preview still don't work though.  I'm using IE.

Actually, I didn't. And I didn't notice any unusual activity with regards to my profile either, so I'm a little concerned about what happened.

I got that message from the same person [ShKPf2sDq], - but it was not blank- original source code for the "ENTER" button was included in my message.

I get the double text box every time, regardless, even if I go back and click again. [ I had to copy and paste this entire message and original quote I'm replying to into the first box just to make this very post- just as I've had to do with every post since the change].

The quote function appears to work just fine for me.

Quote works for me; but I've lost my text editor.... Now my posts are tiny text and not double spaced.

Do I need to use a specific browser to see the hack?  

I've unwittingly been using the latest Google Chromium builds instead of a my usual Mozilla Seamonkey (which is more or less the same as Firefox since 2.0, but that's an argument in a different universe for now...), so I'd feel a bit better if a few people were to post "error" type reports (what they used to view site, etc.) when they found the hack.

Also, more importantly, I think the latest nonsense by the spammers just reiterates that changing software might be necessary, if only to ultimatley buy more time in the on-going evolutionary arms race against the pond scum of the internet (not 4chan, they are mis-understood planktons).

To see the "hack," you have go to a profile that been "hacked."

Common sense eluded me of course, but I can't seem to see the button on said profiles regardless :\

That's because I already fixed those pages. :P I think Lilburne has a screen shot of it.

Mine is ok, but I have seen it on other users profile pages come and go over the last few weeks (maybe months). Wasn't sure if you knew about it, but looks like you have it under control now.
