OK, I will keep this short and sweet. You all know the rules, or better learn to read them. Here are cliff notes:

No baiting, flaming, trolling, thread crapping, cussing or insulting. So if you have an opinion you can state without insulting people, do so, stating it as an opinion. If you have FACTS on a thread, link to a reputable source and state your summation. Anything else not pertinent to a thread is probably infractionable. Also note, we have revised our infraction/vacation policy in CPU such that repeat offenders are now going to find themselves with less time to make trouble in the forums. Members will now receive a vacation automatically every time they commit a posting infraction starting with their 3rd infraction. (previously no vacation time was served until a member committed their 10th infraction) This includes use of the word fanboy.


Update 1/24/2014
You may have pictures of your benchmarks, so long as there are NO URL's on them. If its obvious that you have a lab with 20 computers, and you are benchmarking them, be careful not to link to your site, that's against the rules, and the thread will be locked and you will be banned for spamming.

edit 08/28/2018:
Do not just drop links without comment. People need to know what are in the links before deciding whether to click on it.
It is your job as a poster to comment on it.
