Jolly guacamole! Either that's an old topic that glitched when posted, or someone tapped into it somehow and posted. How on earth did you find that?

It wasn't there in Google's latest cache either.



That's a pretty nasty glitch.

Oh God that's not good :O. If it's a glitch then how did it happen?

EDIT: I found that you could make the login bar visible, but it required the password to the site to go further.

What is the problem? Sure, it's off topic, but it doesn't make sense… Soccer?

i think the user is just a commercial spammer because i entered their name into google and found several other places where their post(s) made no sense at all

but still it's funny how a bot manages to get into the archives but no human has been able to so far

i hate my username

Dang it, I'm afraid we're gonna have to turn off the old archives, folks.
It's taking too much time - and it's a bad security problem. Any old web stack - but especially a PHP web stack - needs constant updating and maintenance to protect it from newly discoverd security holes. We just don't have the bandwidth to manage ye olde archives, keep ‘em secure, and do all the zillion other things we do.

Take your screenshots now, folks! We’ll have to hold a funeral for ye olde forums tomorrow.

Ah…. Well, I am just wondering, and i am sure there's a good answer and i am just ignorant, but why is it a problem if a program can get in a post a stupid topic on a no longer used thread? Posting inappropriate stuff?

Yup, basically that. And other users might be able to get in.

At least we have the waybackmachine….. I hope.

SEO spam. They make money because their spam is on an EDU site, and it increases their page rank in google searches. We aren't cool with that.

This is not the only exploit against old unpatched PHPs either.

Lightnin, will the Way Back Machine still have it, although it'll be gone?

@Lightnin Would it be practical to give us an SQL dump of the old forums' database?
