 Yes, Indeed, Anonymous has a Diary

Assuming this works, going to this URL while not logged in will let you post a diary anonymously.

[editor's note, by Clifton] Ça too much, mon nég. Tout moun la apé hacker Adequacy asteur! Mo go beat you up. Pi tout moun ki anonymous la tendé bligé ça mo dit: Hack pas Adequacy la.

Why oh why is it letting me post a diary as anonymous reader?
What happened?
Kittie Pr0n, did I do the right thing?
The most beautiful display of utter crap I have ever had the mispleasure of seeing discovered the flaw. I'm releasing the details because the harm that can be done by this hole is pretty small, so the benefits of increased global knowledge outweigh the risks.

I think I fixed this bug.<P>
Unfrtunately it means that Anonymous Readers can't submit stories now, but I'm sure we will think of a workaround.

You have just brazenly admitted to "fixing" this "bug" - we all know this is a pejorative for "h4x0ring" some "b0x3n".

I'll bet you used one of those nefarious "text editors" to commit your foul deed. No, don't try to defend your criminal behaviour - I won't allow my ears to be sullied with your illicit commentary. -- because it isn't

To fix it I clicked a little check box on a special admin page. No use of text editors, keyboards or programming of any sort. I leave programming to the professionals.

I don't want to break the law.

I tried several times to submit a diary while logged out, and the only bug I discovered was a malformed bit of HTML that loads the Adequacy logo from "images/logo.gif" (rather than "../../images/logo.gif"), which, only when trying to anonymously post diaries in Netscape on Lunix, causes the logo to be incorrectly loaded from http:/../../

I think Adequacy has been "hacked". - love it or leave it.
