cnm quoted this:
...There have been too many instances where folks are providing inaccurate or incomplete advice. There is a real possibility this could cause damage or unecessary grief therefore this policy is in effect immediately.

Interesting stance to take... I wonder if that might be needed here and on other boards... People used to learn by observing and trying things, but now that we have Boot Camp and other classes that isn't necessary and inexperienced people posting fixes can cause problems. I cringe when I think of some of the suggestions I made before I had some training....
There were a few more replies then Eagle1 said
Actually there is precedence for the position I took. And given the fact there is schooling to guide and encourage folks into learning it makes all the more sense.
It was getting out of hand. If it wasn't for a couple of alert advisors there could have been problems for a couple folks. It had to be brought under control. The potential adverse affects require it actually IMO.
Another post, then I said
Paul Wilders has done something similar. Wilder's no longer allows guest posting in the hijack forum. Not only that, they have some tweak that prohibits even registered users from posting in other peoples topics. You can only post in the topic you created. Obviously, board staff can post in any topic. They still allow guest posting in all other areas of the board.
Anyways, I thought this was interesting, so I brought it over to the new board here.
