I believe until HIFI can provide us with the securities we all crave the users who have been asked to shoulder the burden of hosting the community needs to think about creating a shared whitelist system.
Everyone and their dog who wants to can wreak havoc in seemingly endless ways.
Trust is one thing, but the whitelist is the only lock that prevents this proxy shit.
But Judas that would stop new users enjoying the platform.
I think a comprehensive user list can be taken from the forum. Invite only didn’t stop gmail taking off.
The griefing fraternity are likely responsible for HIFIs change of direction, endless bullshit.
Who would go on this list?
Well by and large even the people I don’t like aren’t hell bent on destroying the community and platform.
In 5 years, I’ve only seen a couple.
Is it possible to cut paste a whitelist of names into the sandbox thing?
Is it possible to link a whitelist to a server holding the names?
