Hosts & Hostees: You both have responsibilities.
This is the entry I’m supposed to apologize in for not blogging in so long whether I actually have any sincere feelings as far as not blogging on this domain in so long goes. I’m also probably supposed to explain the reason it was, for quite some time, merely a blank page. That’s because the themes directory was no where to be found by WordPress or myself at the time. That’s because people with zero lives and dignity felt they had some necessity to go and pull some ignorant, disrespectful and immature act hack my website. An account on the server was hacked, thus creating some kind of bridge that allowed other websites to be hacked. That’s why you should definitely keep whatever scripts you use on your site up to date. It wasn’t something I did; I did my part in keeping my stuff up to date. Personally, I think that is a responsibility all hostees need to have. Any hostee that cannot be bothered to simply keep their scripts up to date and to not use outdated scripts on a server they do not own personally does not deserve the privilege to be hosted.
However, hosts have responsibilities as well.
It’s not okay.
As a hostee, your host trusts you to not put anything harmful on the server, to follow the terms given and to feel like you’re part of a family.
As a host, your hostees trust you to respect them and not invade their privacy. They trust you, and if you think it’s okay to release private details about them, you deserve to lose all of their trust.
Unfortunately, I feel like I’m the only person who sees that such things are a problem. I’m done hiding; I’m pointing them out because I feel like it’s something that really needs to be said. This post is long overdue.
