how much of an expert to you have to be to be an expert?

i'm a student and thought becoming an expert in Delphi section would help my studies as exploring interesting problems seems like kinda fun. Some of these questions seem like obvious attempts at trying to do nasty things. do you still answer questions about people who ask how to create nasty code?

most people on E-E are wannabes

I am the #1 wannabe =)

if you want to be an E-E expert in Delphi, you need no qualifications...just answer what you can answer

How have to measure if your answer will not be used to harm other folks.

I've found users here collecting bits of code, that, put all together later would be very dangerous. I don't answer that kinda stuff, and leave a message to the user acknowledging him I know if his bad intentions.

Folks who ask "How do I write a virus" don't get that kinda treatment. We report that to the Customer Service at once.

Hmmmm...

Well I registered as an 'expert' so I could make comments from time to time..... maybe someday I can actually begin giving good answers
for people here... buy I'm not there yet... just jump on in and register as an expert and put your 2 cents in :-)


And as for 'nasty code?' I didn't need to ask anybody here for pointers on how to write code that could mess up/crash/spindle/mutilate someones computer... I was able to write delphi code from the very beginning that would give you the 'Blue Screen of Death'  ;-)

You may look at API documentation like at instruction to write nasty code ;-). And Windows written with it)))

OOOh yeah, just do something like:

  Asm INT 10h End;

and you've got yourself a handful of bluescreen.

I must admit, I'm guilty of all charges:
1) Signing in as an Expert while I was just starting to code (though I've been in the Pascal area quite a time before then).
2) Writing a Trojan Horse. Now, before I get kicked of EE, I want you to know I have only used it to send annoying messages to my friends while we were playing games on a LAN, and I have *NOT* released the Trojan on the internet and I have *NOT* given anyone the source to it.
Please forgive me... :-)
