I got a few chuckles from the rules. I tend to scan them unless I see something interesting - then dig deeper. It's nice to see that someone has both a sense of humor and a long history in the "industry."

If everyone read the rules, you'd be able to store the entire forum on a 256KB flash drive.

Cheers.

That's already covered in the rules.

I think this post can apply here, if not, I apologize.
I can access every link in bulletin except "How to read CPU-Z". Wonder why is that?
The message says "..you do not have permition..." What do I need to do to get one?
Thank you

9) NO DISCUSSION OF COMPETITORS:
This forum is here for the express purpose of supporting current and future users of Corsair Memory. Please do not discuss competing products or their suppliers by name on this forum, either in a positive light or a negative one. Such posts or threads will be edited or deleted at our discretion. Please contact the makers of that product for help. As stated above, their names are filtered out from public view.

I understand this, and the reason: however what about this nature..

I have an ****** case with a ******, will this work with a Corsair ??
I noticed that some of my System Specs are blotted out, This is something I have never experinced on any other site...

I guess it is because others have abused it?

I like Corsair very much, and am very proud to sport their product in my systems..
but can be a bit hurtfull when I like other stuff too... and am also proud of..

When looking for Ram & Power Supplies at my favorite E-Tailer (********) I always go strait to Carsair's Products, and do not even consider others.
I also highly recomend Corsair Products to Family and Friends, All my systems will have Carsair & ******* Products. the other's are not even considered.. reguardless of price..
And I have posted many links to Corsair Products on other Support Forums like ******* I am Big part of...
So you see, If these other sites did not allow us to post links to Corsair Products, I would stop using their forums...
EX: I am using *******, and am having issues.... which then brings us to, Recomend a High Quality product like ( ******* )
Or, What Ram works with (********) motherboard, Ohh I would use, (*********)'s Ram

I have Sensored out a Manufactuers name on an image I posted about an Idea,
which I am now having second thoughts about the idea all together...
I even had to copy and rename the image, because *********-??.jpg does not exisit in my websites directory...
I find this battle of other manufactuers very anoying and degrading...

No Offense, Just my feelings on the subject..

There is no battle here and there is no intent to make Corsair customers feel bad. In the past, we have had overzealous members criticizing or slandering other companies on our site. We also occasionally have people that have issues with other brands that come here requesting support. So, the blanket fix is to filter the words.

Also, we can read through the filter, so the only ones that may have a need to read it can read it.

I think the rules should be amended to make it clear because I read Rule #9 a bit differently. The poster does not want to discuss a competitors product, he wants advice on where to mount a Corsair product in a specific case in which he needs to disclose the make and model of the case in order to obtain an accurate answer. In this perticular situation it's mounting a liquid cooling system into a specific case that the poster has.

Wired: I believe it was you that stated that if we don't speak up, the rules will not be changed. I mean lets get real, are you, or really Corsair since it's thier forum, going to deny this poster of some help locating a reasonable spot to mount the item he purchased from Corsair? Is this sending a message that a person can only ask for help on a cooling system product so long as it's only in a Corsair case? It's this type of situation that the rules should be modified. This is my vote if you have any influence on the rules.

-Joe

1 word being omitted will not prevent the poster you are referring to from getting support here, thru TSX Express. or by phone. Unfortunately, the filtering provided by VBulletin is not sophisticated enough to determine usage or context of certain words. Over the very long time we've had this forum, we've found this type of filtering to work best for us in maintaining the type of atmosphere we want that will best benefit our customers.

Thank you for your input. It this becomes an issue, we'll address it.

BOTs and spammers create accounts here to exploit our forum and harass our members. One way to do this is to put prohibited material in their signatures. However bots, and most spammers are not going to post 10 legitimate posts to get to the point where they post a signature. This rule is to help protect our members from spammers.
