Dan's Tesla Thread
« on: November 15, 2018, 08:34:34 PM »
This is fascinating -- especially since these multi-level glitches came from an actual high-tech company:  https://www.dansdeals.com/more/dans-commentary/went-tesla-delivery-hell-tesla-giving-control-site-forums-1-5-million-tesla-account-contacts/

The best part would be if your whole "Dan'sDeals" name was on listed as your user ID their forums instead of just "Dan". This would be huge PR and exposure!

Just finished reading, truly a remarkable story and read. And IMO, Dan's honesty was a real Kidush Hashem!

Dan describes the car like he does food.
I just found a new supply of forks!

Leave it to @Dan will probably end up getting paid for having bought the car with the bounty report. Kind of like your Swiss luggage debacle
Plus the publicity from the post.
I think this calls for my favorite quote
How many times do I have to say it
Ein meviim raayah mi'Dan

Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

+1

I'm curious to see Elon Musk's reaction and response to this... I am sure that the online Tesla forum conversation speculations will also get to him shortly.

Was a beautiful, but then again wacky story.
 I enjoyed where he managed to wipe the forum clean.
Can you imagine he accidentally wiped the forum on ddf clean? I can't.

 Was a great story, im sure there's more to the story then what dan disclosed, as dan didn't really say much to what happened after he told them about the data breach.
Yes he got an email...

 Surprising that a company worth a few Billion $ can't have a group of IT ppls who are managing the forum and making sure the sites are secured and well protected from a regular consumer breaching into their system.

 
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.
