comment Is using 'dot' and 'at' in email addresses in public text still useful?
@Scott that's only possible when spam can scale up easily to send spam to all random addresses AND naxa's email address. my argument is that they can't. it's neither probable nor feasible.

@Scott you don't know that but neither do mail crawlers. the whole goal is to increase noise to make spamming more expensive.

@Adnan if only one bike among a million is sold (hence the clicks to ads), it's something to consider for thieves yes. because they would be employing a million people just to sell one bike.

comment Is it okay to reveal database's table names?
@acolyte No worries, obviously I should have been more explicit. It's not you I was referring to but the conceited, prejudgemental SE meta-culture partly demonstrated here.

And I cannot be more than glad to be reminded of that StackExchange-spawn web sites have a strict policy against humor in valid answers. That's not the first time I was warned about exposing my humane side and even punished for that. I'm sure that with sufficient effort, all SE users will fail Turing test at some point. Good job.

comment Is it okay to reveal database's table names?
IT history contains many instances of "code/db goes public and becomes a PR scandal" events (such as Windows code containing swearwords, LinkedIn DB containing unsalted passwords). Table names are no exception. A table named after a joke, or containing EULA-violating information can be a big scandal for a company. If this does not makes sense still I don't know what does.

@Adnan my answer isn't a joke. I argued that table names if chosen badly, can put the company at legal/PR risk. It'sa perfectly valid possibility. My example of "single_female_users" was a joke, the rest, claiming that they are unrealistic requires a premise, such as an answer to "why?".

@acolyte no, I was making a joke with single_female_users? oh my god this is getting more and more awkward. I think I'm slightly being pushed to explain the joke itself.

comment Why improvising your own Hash function out of existing hash functions is so bad
why not add a sleep(15000); after each hash? sure benefits are unknown but it certainly doesn't make it less secure :)
