Internet Security Threat Report 2014

In a show of reader empowerment (without you, we're nothing [small tear trickles down feathered cheek]), resident bad boy Mike Magee has persuaded loyal subject Hoodview to become co-moderator on our bulletin board. It's a case of care in the (Web) community and, of course, practicality - Hoodview (aka Hermit) actually reads the board more than we do. Settled high up in the hills of Hood River, Oregon, Mr R. Don Martin has consistently impressed Register readers through inventive use of sarcasm and irony and a general mischievousness. From now on, he will have the power to remove or alter abusive, blasphemous, racist, commercial or just plain stupid postings (hopefully having emailed them to us first). If successful, the position of Readers' Editor may even open up - that's right - wouldn't it be comforting to be told to piss off by an independent source instead of just one of us? Check out the Bulletin Board here. ®
