Kool, I'm sorry..
I really did not want sound offensive..

But your replies have dignified the site.. (I think I spelled it right) Dignify, anyway..
I feel better about the situation now, Spammers do intend ruin a forum very quickly..

PS. Yellowbeard, are you also the guy from EVGA forums?
or maybe the Avatar is the same.. IDK..

You weren't offensive at all and to many, at a glance the rules do not make sense. And, unfortunately, it's akin to killing ants with a hammer. But, it's the best overall solution at this time.

Happy Holidays All

Default How do I post my question on here?

I registered and my account says I CANNOT do hardly anything? I really need help with my system and I am looking to maybe purchase some more RAM if it would help my problem(s).

If you need support, make a post in the correct section.

I guess it is because others have abused it?


No Offense, Just my feelings on the subject..
i tend to agree, but it is what it is.
if the forum was sponsored by anyone else other than the OEM this rule would prolly be gone but again, their house...their rules! so it is what it is.

Why are other brands (competitors) censored? I'm not discussing the brand, I'm just listing my specs in detail.

See # 9. http://forum.corsair.com/forums/showthread.php?t=80356

In the past, we have had users criticize other makers here or try to promote other brands. We even get people requesting support for those brands. Therefore, they are filtered.

yea but unfortunately around here you cant even post the products youre talking about. cant have any competition now can we......this forum is like the terminator of censorship. unreal. if you make top notch products, you shouldnt be worried about the competition. furthermore, anyone that thinks you dont have any is clearly in need of therapy. they clearly think that if they make a product you should have theirs and no one elses. youll notice they block all references in the posts. too funny.

This forum is the most extreme I've seen in regards to listing the names of competitive products but what can you do. A little searching and you will find what you are looking for. Corsair makes some good products but they should understand that competition is good for business and the product.

i used to feel the same way and worse about the censorship here until i realized this is not a discussion board for all things computer. this is a Corsair product support BBS only for only Corsair products and nothing else. any discussion about any other brand can be distracting and troublesome. i mean you dont walk into a ford dealer and start talking about your camaro..that would be irrelevant. same goes here. not only that but if you google "blahblah ram" and you get results on the Corsair forum it will not help the searcher in any way either.
Corsair pays to host and support this site, so their house, their rules. if it was member supported im sure things would be different.

i will say that the blocking of the correct spelling of "simanntek" anti virus is blocked as well and is annoying but it is what it is :)

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.
In short, the filter is clearly covered in the rules. Just last week people were asking for support from Corsair about their competitor's products. Why I have no idea, but this is clearly not the place for it. IMHO the best place for discussion of Product A vs Product B are on more general tech forums.

Question Is this company banned - ******** ???

Perhaps I’m missing something or missed something but whenever I type this company’s name Attachment 6989 I get this ********

No matter where I type the name, asterisks show up. Look at my system specs.

Is this company banned from being mentioned here??? Or are the censor filters malfunctioning?

Please inform.

Thanks
