interesting side note - i first discovered newgrounds through a stolen NG assassin movie, which still contained a link to NG when it was stolen and put straight onto the other site. so... stealing isn't all bad :p
so long as the thieves are lazy to remove the link ; )
Considering that a lot of what we make can be cut and pasted, it's upto the developer to either catch a lead on the market (cash in quick) or to invest time making their code a rubics-cube of puzzles and hidden messages that any lazy bod wouldn't have the time or skillz to solve.. but it's a losing battle..

More and more php/database hook-in's and stuff slow the haxxors down, but it's like spending time to buy some time.. :~P
Anywho, no matter how much work we put into a site or a flash, it's still miniscule compared to the effort put into designing our computers, building the whole interweb infrastructure, or developping flash or php etc as someone has pointed out.
I'm in the same boat as far as time invested in insecure scripts - but that was my choice fro the beginning (as i've just explained). While we could sit around and discuss a solution, others are just runnig at the problem head on.. Our challenge is to pay the rent or find enjoymemt doing what we're good at.
