Pretty much as headshot stated.

Most computer enthusiast websites have very strict restrictions on their BST forums because it is a feature implemented as a service for the communities members, rather than the primary purpose of the website.

It's like store's with the policy "Washroom is for Customer use only"; it is a service for the customers, they're not in the business of providing a porta potty.

Aren't those the rules Arinoth just finished stating too? Along the lines of "If you're here just to use and abuse the BST section, then you'll be banned". Hmmmm....

100 may be a bit excess IMO.


Another reason, astro_man, that we asked this requirement be imposed is that often there were spamming bots that would actually come in and drop a list of five-finger-discount garbage in the BST section without warning. It had to be stopped, and this limit has helped actually...

Oh, and welcome to the forum. Me n dangtx are also from Mtl.... so if you spam too much, we'll find you

Wow, it is impressive to see so many people who are so quick to speculate on banning people....

The fact that I don't 'care' for the forum doesn't mean I'll spam and be an a$$.

See for yourself... look up my posts

thx for the Greetings CMetaphor and others!

I can assure you, that you will NOT be banned for just using the BST forum, provided forum rules are followed. All members are welcome equally, despite which topics they choose (or don't choose) to participate in.


I'd say this thread has run it's course. The OP has been made aware of the rules and their purpose. Thanks to those with quality input.
