Hi Justin - in the General Hardware forum under :-

Alt key has stopped working - 24/09

response #1 contains a link that is highly suspect, connecting to a hacking site.

Please can this be checked out.

Perhaps sometime you could review the 'reasons' choice when reporting a suspect posting.
e.g. what is flaming?
Would have though there need not be that many choices, but have found on occasion those current do not cover.

Thanks - Mike

Hey Mike,

Thanks for the heads up. I have removed the link... Maybe I will add another reason to the box tomorrow. I'm not sure removing some of the other reasons is really necessary, as there are only a few. I do agree that there are some cases where the pre-existing reasons might not apply though.

Thanks again,

You asked "what is flaming". Rather than give you my version I put it in Google.

This is what Wikipedia came up with (in summary):
"Hostile and insulting interaction between Internet users"

I went ahead and added the option for "Security Issue."

Thanks for the feedback!

re: "Hostile and insulting interaction between Internet users"

I've never known "interaction between Internet users" to be a necessary part of a flame.

If I thought your posting of the definition really sucked, I could flame you but if you didn't respond, there would no "interaction". However, my post would still be a flame.

If other users piled on and all posted flames in your direction, the posts would still be flames even though there was no "interaction" between any users.

Now, if we want to talk about a "flame war" then interaction would need to be involved.

Ah yes, but that was Wikipedia's definition.
Mine of course would be far better LOL.
