in thread We got hacked again.

How would you like people to be authenticated? Like have someone check copies of ID cards whether they say "BrowserUK" before admitting someone? Run soundex or "graphex" on user names before allowing them? Not admitting users unless they can prove ownership of a like-named account on another forum with at least $n posts?

Can't be "authenticating" as in "checking that the user is actually the owner of the account she's trying to use" as there's nothing wrong with how that's implemented as far as I can see.

[Corion]: marto: Ow, I hope that gets better soonish! But I feel some $work-timecrunch looming at my $work as well
[Corion]: marto: Ah, so you can multiplex work and PM time ;-D
[Corion]: The upside to this is that I've reduced my $work (well, $paid) time to 80%, so I'll be at $work only four days/week, which will hopefully make the crunch less crunchy on me ;)
[marto]: yeah, so that stays as before. But before the boys were born I'd be on quite often at night (GMT) also
[marto]: I had the option during our TUPE transfer to buy 5 more days holiday. They were shocked when I did :P
