Talk:Sanitize user input

From Rosetta Code

Delete? Is this task meant to be serious or someone's idea of a mickey-take? The link to Bobby tables takes me to a wiki explaining comics. Clearly this rc contributor's input is not to be trusted--Nigel Galloway (talk) 13:50, 9 September 2021 (UTC)

Not too fussed. I think it is mildly interesting that sometimes you have to sanitize your own source code in much the same way as user input, but otherwise I agree this is "not a task". Delete or "orphan" by removing the {{draft task}} tag would both be fine by me. --Pete Lomax (talk) 14:20, 9 September 2021 (UTC)
OK, I've gone ahead and removed "task", we'll see what portals to hell open up for me. As I said I'm fine with this being on rc, as a mildly interesting diversion/discussion, but it does not qualify as a task. --Pete Lomax (talk) 10:31, 11 September 2021 (UTC)
If Thundergnat is agreeable, might as well just delete it as there's not much point in leaving orphaned stuff around. --PureFox (talk) 13:32, 11 September 2021 (UTC)
It can still be found by typing sanitize into the search box.... --Pete Lomax (talk) 16:36, 11 September 2021 (UTC)
Well I suppose it can, though if no more solutions are added, it's not going to be very illuminating.
It's a pity that the author hasn't tied down the task a bit more - he has added some clarification but it didn't help much - and also provided an example, preferably in a language other than assembler. It's not easy to come up with ideas for new tasks and it's a shame when people are put off from trying their hand at this. --PureFox (talk) 18:53, 11 September 2021 (UTC)
Well, the author has responded to at least some of the criticisms and it seems to me that the requirements are now clear enough for folks to tackle it in a meaningful way. I suggest therefore that its 'draft task' status should be restored. --PureFox (talk) 19:24, 13 September 2021 (UTC)
Restored 'draft task' status since this was appearing in and messing up the completed tasks count for Phix and no doubt others. --Pete Lomax (talk) 10:22, 13 December 2021 (UTC)
