Y'all are a bunch of wankers!

oh bugger john mccain that tech stuff is tricky

John McCain is using Mike Davidson's MySpace template (without attribution) and pulling some images directly from Davidson's server, which is a big no-no in webmaster land. So Davidson modified one of his images displaying on McCain's MySpace page to say that he'd reversed his position on gay marriage, especially "marriage between passionate females

don't myspacers appropriate each others templates all the time? and linking to another's image is par for the www course.

perhaps politicians must adhere to a higher standard, or be reverse graffiti'd.

it's not higher security .. no one hacked anything. it's that if you're a publicly prominent patrician who sources their images like that, be prepared to be taken down to a plebe level.

It is security.  McCain wants to control the images on his page.  The way his page was set-up allowed unauthorized people to manipulate the message that appear on McCain's page.  That's a security failure.

"McCain wants to control the images on his page."

That's called security?

I hope he doesn't become President then. I imagine he'd outsource his Secret Service bodyguards to Burma, Bulgaria or Bolivia and complain that they didn't taste test his food adequately.

Holy shit, this site is jam-packed with idiots.  Idiots crammed in like sardines.  Sardines in a thimble.  A bent, flattened thimble.  At the bottom of the ocean under immense pressure.  The compressed mass of idiots on this site is more dense than a black hole.  A black hole into which disappears all sense and ability to comprehend anything at all beyond basic respiration.

It's a broad view of security.  That's how we make the big money.

Anyone here really think McCain does his own content? This has the pawprints of a contractorwho didn't believe the candidate will make it and so cut corners.
