    Look folks ('Quark' in particular),

    No one wants to see a thread slamming another user--whatever the reason. (Especially one with a poll attached.)

    And let's watch the implied language -- a post riddled with ****'ed out words is not something most of us are looking for here. (Mymemory.)

    Enough

    Understood

    My sincerest apologies to everyone.

    I got a bit carried away.

    It won't happen again, and I totally agree with blakespot.

    Again, my sincerest apologies to everyone!

    I just noticed with much dismay that my insightful and funny poo-heads post was removed.

    It ought to be site policy to send a private message to the policy violator with a description of which post was removed and why. This is not the first post of mine to be yanked without warning or explanation. And frankly, without naming names, may I be so arrogant as to say that there are plenty of other posts more moronic and wasteful of bandwidth than mine that are never touched. Just an idea.

    We'll try to do this in the future.

    I'm, not sure which post you are referring to... in general offtopic/flamewars are locked rather than deleted. Things that will buy you instant deletion include warez/serials talk, offensive links/posts, pointless threads (posts just intended to increase your post count... ie 5 posts which say "I agree")

    I agree:D


    Ya, I think that people should be nicer to each other even if they do shoot out anti-mac stuff every 10 seconds. Arn, are you using you own server or is Mac Rumors being hosted by some company? And how would you turn your normal computer into a server?(probably for some other thread, but I was just wondering)

    I agree:D

    MacRumors is hosted on a leased dedicated server. (Linux Machine @ http://www.servint.net ).

    To turn your own computer into a server... you just need to run the proper software - _and_ you need a good connection to the internet.

    It probly is like a T10 connection, no joke

    It CAN get a little uglier:

    OC3 and direct 3 metre satellite make a T3 look like a stir-straw.:D

    Gulp!

    You guys, just a word of advice. Do not talk anything of Serials/Pirating here. Arn will ban you, (he gave me a warning...thank you arn!)
    Just a heads up!

    OC12, OC shmelve..........

    When I say "3 metre satellite" I'm talking a whole transponder's worth of bandwidth. That's enough bandwidth to casually use 1024 bit Encryption.:D
