    Well when you need some answer about Dev or other stuff, that site seems to put up often in google.

    Well i'm tired of their listing that shows up but you can't see the solutions unless you have a premium membership. WELL NO MORE

    Here is how to Hack or Bypass their security, since they want to be listed in google, they allow google to spider their forum. Well next time they pop up, just hit CACHED under their listing. Well when you go to page, will still show the Solution saying you have to pay for premium, but go at bottom of page, it's a long way, but it's there :)

    That will show you the page the spider saw :) oh yeah that is right, you see the Solutions without paying for premium membership. This hack works on many forum list this or sites.

    Have fun :)

    i don't know about you guys, but most answers I find that way on the site are still rather cryptic, or unhelpful. maybe i'm just looking up the wrong questions.
    but i avoid the site completely...

    I always find my answers outside of EE. Never had a problem. If I see an EE link i skip it all together.

    This is kinda old, back when it still was ExpertSexChange.c0m *lol* I still wonder why google does not ban them for cloacking?

    I think we should now all head over to penisland.net for all our questions

    Maybe you need to learn programming or other stuff better :p or learn to google better. I have been coding and server admin for many years (10 i think) and never i had to pay a forum to help me find a answer to a question.

    But i could be wrong, could be very well worth it, and if it is, keep it up with tehm, and i'll keep my free ways :)

    I thought every knows how to get in for free. Actuall what you could do is sign up as an expert. That way you could just browse any question for FREE. You're an expert now so u could answer or reply those threads without paying a dime.. but u can't make any thread.... Just answer 10 question and you'll be a paid member.. that's what i usually do... Some of those people are noobs, like some members here...:D

    Nice solution to this annoying freakin site. It got me excited two or three times only to find out they wanted money for a simple answer. Nice share.

    this is a good technique but i have one better. use a VCC with a very small balance on it - like $1. signup and join their premium trial membership. you have full access and they answer all your questions for you. when your trial converts and they try to charge your VCC you'll have to go make a new acct. No pay, full access.... priceless.

    Hey Guys, You can do the cached trick as above, but its not always current.

    If you just select the text and hit ctr + a to select all, then open up notepad and paste it in. Scroll to the bottom of the text and there are the answers.

    I have an EE account too, as it can be a great resource when you are in a time crunch due to an outage or something like that.

    Like Dev-Gank said, the answers are listed at the bottom of the page unencoded.
    You should be able to scroll right down to the very bottom of the page and see the full, complete answers for the question.

    Just tested it, and it only works if you come from Google.
    Easy way to fix that, download the refspoof extension for Firefox, and in the white box by "spoof:", put in "http://www.g00gle.com" and press enter.
