What the FSCK is the matter with people? I've posted reasonable corrections or questions in reply to a few posts and then people either edit their posts so history is totally fscked, or they rail against me (in the CB as well) and THEN edit their posts to correct their originals, with no mention of the fact made in the post. Is there or is there not a history at this site? My suggestion is that NOONE be allowed to change the content of their posts *period*. Either make it simply impossible or at the very least make it only possible to *append* to a post (at least an appendum is obvious). Changing history is bad bad bad! No, it is worse than bad, it is a lie. Will we support outright lying? What the hell is the problem with just adding a correction instead of rewriting the answer or the code or whatever? Doesn't anyone here have any freaking integrity?

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;

    [Corion]: Yay. FF now has u2f built-in (behind an about:config setting), so using an USB token to sign in actually works :)
    [Corion]: So, it's not all bad with the new FF :)
    [holli]: 2factor is a bit too much for me. i just use passwords like jhbn8789q27312laks dmaw98^
    [moritz]: isn't there also some about:config setting to enable the old plugin API?
    [Discipulus]: indeed, only the logo is nicer
    [Corion]: moritz: Hmm, I doubt so, as I think they moved away from XUL and other UI stuff, which was used by most plugins I used
