in reply to Cool code for your home node

In order to prove that JavaScript is evil, I had the following code on my node (which raised some complaints, so I took it down)
<!-- // This is the B10m "JavaScript is evil" trap ... // Yes, these are pieces snatched from multiple sources and // glued together by me ;) // // A cookie will be set, to ensure that we don't fill up te // Chatterbox with just these silly messages. And to ensure // people won't fear to enter my home node again ... // // Thanx to JSchmitz for the idea of posting to the CB ;) // --> <form name="b10m_trap" method="post" action="/" enctype="appli +cation/x-www-form-urlencoded"> <input type="hidden" name="node_id" value="295259" /> <input type="hidden" name="op" value="message" /> <input type="hidden" name="message" value="/me declares: 'JavaScript i +s the work of Satan!'" /> </form> <script language="JavaScript"> var b10m = document.cookie; function getCookie(name) { var index = b10m.indexOf(name + "="); if (index == -1) return null; index = b10m.indexOf("=", index) + 1; var endstr = b10m.indexOf(";", index); if (endstr == -1) endstr = b10m.length; return unescape(b10m.substring(index, endstr)) } if (!getCookie("trapped")) { var today = new Date(); var expire = new Date(); expire.setTime(today.getTime() + 3600000*24*365); document.cookie = "trapped=you_becha" + ";expires="+expire.toGMTStr +ing(); document.b10m_trap.submit(); } </script>
Updated: Spelling can be hard ... changed a few words to correct spelling.
