Software developer. On my spare time I'm sometimes building a hopefully better discussion system for blogs and forums:

comment How can I hide whois information?
How did they realize that the address is incorrect? (Or why else would they have sent you the letter?) Didn't you specify a seemingly correct address?

comment SEO: do we need to redirect also pages with final slash?
I think it depents on which Web server you use, and your particular application, whether or not the trailing slash helps in the manner you describe. In my case, with the Scala / Lift-Web application I'm building, the trailing slash does not matter at all, w.r.t. performance: I store the documents in a database not in the filesystem.

comment Letting hosted forum users design their own forums?
Adapting a free CMS is a really good idea. Actually I did that: I started with implementing a plugin to JSP Wiki (a Java Wiki). However there were lots of legacy code that I didn't need so I thought I might as well build my own stuff. Now I've done that, and I'm fairly happy with having everything written in Scala, and having no code to understand or worry about (w.r.t. security issues) that isn't related to what I want to build. (I'm planning to build a plugin to e.g. WordPress :-) )

comment Letting hosted forum users design their own forums?
The priority list is a good idea. I'd guess a few percent of the users would appreciate the possibility to configure HTML and CSS themselves -- but those few percent would be very valuable users I guess :-) The other users? Well, initially perhaps I could help them configuring their pages, so a few of them would benefit too. Later on I'd implement a click-and-choose CSS/html-layout for everyone (based on my experiences from the initial trivial implementation).

comment Can I use asterisks in URLs?
When I read the URI spec, my interpretation is that in the HTTP scheme it's fine for a webapp to use !*+ etc as it sees fit. The HTTP scheme isn't very strict (in comparison to the other schemes listed), as far as I can tell from Wikipedia. Well perhaps I should open another question about the HTTP scheme and the URI spec. Anyway, I'll probably have to accept the other answer, which argues from an end user's point of view, since I don't understand whether or not this URI spec answer is correct.

Hashbangs were new to me, an interesting read :-) There was a link to another interesting article too: Cool URLs never change.

comment When to reply 400 Bad Request
Why not a custom 400 page sometimes, and a custom 404 sometimes? (I just tested in my webapp and, on my computer, Chrome & Firefox shows the plain text message in the status 400 page)

I don't know if I agree with that general answer. A way to learn new stuff, is to do something that you don't know how it works, and then you'll learn and find out. How would our future be if people in general did only things that they knew exactly how they were working? (It's a pre-alpha-version that I'd be releasing, so it's not meant for production :-)) -- Thanks for the info and links anyway :-)

(In case anyone wonders about the reference to Asterix: I misspelled Asterisk, I thought it was Asterix :-))
