Server Crash Exploit News

Due to some nimrod publicly posting an exploit he found in Minecraft's handling of NBT data, we will probably have to deal with at least a few people trying to get access to our servers so they can crash them as a form of griefing. 

Fortunately, this exploit will only work if they can actually connect to the server with their game client, so our whitelists protect the servers from this attack.  However, in light of this we should be especially careful about whitelisting new players.  I have just banned Person358 or whatever the name was, as I really can't believe he is a member of our community from what he posted.  I will be banning and/or deleting anyone new who seems suspicious, and I recommend others with the authority do the same.
