    Yes I do...

    I don't know you from a can of spray paint and I always check if it is safe by sourcing a page before I click on an unknown link... Your obfuscation only served to make me suspicious and before any of my other fellow members clicked on your link I wanted to make sure it was safe for them to do so....

    Why would you post a link in a developers forum to an obfuscated script and ask for comments on it? What did you expect?

    Ok, by c1lonewolf's request, the decrypted source code Willy posted is now deleted. I don't know whether you gave clear warning to people looking at your page that the script within would be encrypted and what the nature of the script is, but if not, I can certaily understand Willy being cautious, and decrypting it to make sure there's nothing "fishy" with it. It's just good common sense. If you clearly posted a warning about the nature of the script and requested the plain source of the script not be posted, then that's another story.

    Anyhow, perhaps it's time to close this thread. I'll wait a little longer.

    c1lonewolf removed the initial post contents, so I guess this thread is dead. However, just a question for c1lonewolf:

    Come on, we're JavaScript developers here. If you want input on any encrypted code, you shouldn't be surprised if we decrypt it. Besides, since JavaScript is plain text, the only thing he did was to list some already available-to-everyone code, something that he would not have been alone in doing anyways.

    Now, a deeper question: What was valuable with that script that you needed to encrypt it? I have admittedly not seen the scripts it linked in, but why hide their linkage in this way? The script tags would still be available from the DOM, the Windows Script Debugger and Venkman (the Mozilla JavaScript Debugger) would still have allowed anyone to see the runtime and source, anyone could have done like same thing Willy did, and finally, what encryption you did is not without a cost in time for all users.
