Not a fan of the python language but he handles it very competently and gets the job done
????????? I didn't understand a bit of it, or why he would want to do it (apart from the fact that he could!)
Ah well, back to my pencil and paper.
Clever--- can see what he's done, and the effect it'll cause, but wouldn't know how to do it.
James Veitch's method made me laugh, though.
This may be of interest
For those that didn't get it...
The text message was a phish, leading the guy to a login page that WASN'T Craigslist. It's a scam to try to con people into giving up their usernames and passwords. What this guy did was write a short program to spam it with 1000 fake email addresses and passwords. The theory is that if anyone did fall for it, maybe the scammer won't be able to find the real stuff from the crud that's just been dumped in there. It was a bit crude, but not bad for 5 minutes of vigilantism against a scammer.
This is so far away from what I need a computer for (emails, MHF, and holiday bookings) Happily I know nothing about this stuff.
You can have some fun even with the ebay scammers
Thanks Hollyberry, that was hilarious, made me laugh too, my sort of humour.
