Among Digg's and StumbleUpon's tens of millions of users, the social bookmarking sites have successfully dealt with numerous troublemakers who try to "game" the voting systems.

New websites allow patients to rate doctors, doctors seek gag orders to silence them

New websites allow patients to rate doctors, doctors seek gag orders to silence them

The anonymous comment on the Web site RateMDs.com was unsparing: "Very unhelpful, arrogant," it said of a doctor. "Did not listen and cut me off, seemed much too happy to have power (and abuse it!) over suffering people." Such reviews are becoming more common as consumer ratings services like Zagat's and Angie's List expand beyond restaurants and [...]

Overly Judgemental IE6 Splash Pages

Overly Judgemental IE6 Splash Pages

While working on this site, I made jokes to Mike Yuan about having really confrontational splash pages for anybody that visited the site using IE6. I swear, I’m not this much of a dick to my users, but as a former PC user/Xbox owner, I have enough pent up MS-Hate to fill a water tower. Just remember it’s completely a joke, I don’t care what [...]

The house that Best Buy built

The house that Best Buy built

Russell Cole once called his extravagant Deerfield home "the house that Best Buy built," according to federal court documents that outline how more than $31 million allegedly was swindled from the national retail giant. The $2.75 million that Cole and his wife, Abby, used to buy the land and build their two-story house with its distinctive [...]

Time Magazine from 1999

I'm sorry, but was there ever a point in history when Time was a credible publication? I mean c'mon they even elected Hitler Man of the Year.

Parking ticket leads to a virus

Hackers have discovered a new way of duping users onto fraudulent websites: fake parking tickets. Cars in the US had traffic violation tickets placed on the windscreen, which then directed users to a website. The website claimed to have photos of the alleged parking violation, but then tricks users into downloading a virus. Anti-virus [...]

Celebrity Twitter Accounts Hacked

Celebrity Twitter Accounts Hacked

My guess is this has nothing to do with the phishing attacks that started on Twitter a couple of days ago. But a few minutes ago the official Fox News Twitter account posted “Breaking: Bill O Riley is gay” (referring to the host of the popular Fox show O’Reilly Factor), right after a legitimate message about making turkey lettuce [...]

Ron Paul Supporters Stage Internet Coup

Ron Paul Supporters Stage Internet Coup

Say what you want about Ron Paul and his legion of tech-savvy supporters, but they do make the Republican party a whole lot more interesting to watch. Case in point? As Politico's Ben Stein reports, Ron Paul supporters have recently flocked to a Digg-like webstie set up by the RNC and flooded it with questions for the debate between candidates for [...]

McCain Campaign Sells Info-Loaded Blackberry to Reporter

McCain Campaign Sells Info-Loaded Blackberry to Reporter

ARLINGTON, Va. - Private information at bargain prices.  It was a high-tech flub at the McCain-Palin campaign headquarters in Arlington when Fox 5’s Investigative Reporter Tisha Thompson bought a Blackberry device containing confidential campaign information. It started with a snippet we read on page A23 in Thursday’s Washington Post.  [...]

Barry Cooper’s KopBusters Reality Series

Like Mark Draughn, I've been somewhat skeptical of Barry Cooper, the former drug cop turned pitchman for how-to-beat-the-cops videos. He comes off as more of a huckster than a principled whistle-blower, which I think does the good ideas he stands for (police reform) more harm than good. But damn... I have to hand it to him. This might be one [...]
