I want to know why anyone would put this ..feature on their server.
It clearly can do 0% to stop hacking, griefing, jerks, idiots, or anything else that I can imagine you trying to keep out of your server. Anyone can lie on a whietlist app, and even if they don't a few words on a post tell you NOTHING about a person.
ALL WHITE LIST DO IS MAKE PEOPLE NOT PLAY YOUR SERVER because they won't want to wait up to days to be able to even log in and look at it, so many won't even make an app.
But heres my point. WHITELIST =/= filter. it stops NOTHINGGGG bad. So why in blazes do you people use it? PLEASE tell me. Whats the difference between a whitelist and a full open-access server? Unless you are constantly running at capacity and needed to limit who could be on. Even then, its kind of a bad idea. & I wouldn't put it in until you were constantly 100/100
If its limited to friends then it has a point.
But I tend to agree when it comes to 20+ people white lists'.
Although it somewhat does lower the griefing level a tad but only stops the sudden offenders.
