    Something I noticed.

    I noticed that you can make accounts with fake e-mail addresses, you don't need to verify them at all.

    For example: if I wanted to start an account I just have to type something like akfsd@yahoo.com in order to start an account. I don't have to verify the account at all by going to that email address and accepting anything. Which means that I can just make up an email and start posting right away.

    I thought it might be a good idea to change this, but maybe there is a reason for not having a verification process.

    Hey guys, I dunno if you noticed this or not, but the lock on the side door is a little shoddy. Someone that would want to break in could totally do it (not that I would know, I'm a saint), anyway, just figured you guys might want to fix that.

    Dean Wormer was wrong. Fat, drunk and stupid was a great way to go through college (all five years of it).
