Virus Instruction?


I was googling to find a solution to the aftermath of a virus on a friend's computer.  What do I find?  Instructions on how to construct a virus.  Most of the posts were incredibly illiterate.  Big surprise, huh?  Why does a site that offers much quality allow this s**t?    Are there any awake moderators out there?

You do realize a site as big as this can't have staff manning the gun 24/7 to shoot down poor quality content out there right?
It HAS been here for three years......
How do you know? The OP did not link or name the instructable he was talking about.
I looked at where the OP left a previous comment - she's right, its nasty, and inimical to the spirit of Instructables.

Really? The OP has "apparently" not left any comments on I'bles. As of now (10:03 pm PDT) they have a total of three comments, but none on an Instructable.
Eh ?
Are we on the same website ?

https://www.instructables.com/community/How-do-you-make-a-computer-virus-that-deletes-prog/

Looks pretty clear to me they HAVE posted.

I don't disagree, Steve, but if you go to the OP's page, their stat's card says "Comments 3", but the main body of the page shows "karena0822 has not posted any comments yet... ". That means that they have made three comments in forum topics or to Questions, but no comments on actual I'bles.

As I recall, those stats generally lag by about 24 hours, depending on which cache server you hit. So presumably by tomorrow the information will be more accurate.
I think the OP is referring to a forum TOPIC, rather than an actual instructable.
I didn't do that, because I know the system counters here are essentially borked, I looked for "How to write a virus" and up came the OPs comment. If you remember some previous correspondence, there are several black holes in this area of the site.

Steve
Comment counters are broken. They are no longer reliable for either forum postings/comments, answers, *or* instructable comments, as I have found. Add it to The List.
