Wow guys... I don't see why this bashing has been instituted.
I will admit I go to BOTH here and "another laser forum" and isn't it just all about the expansion of knowledge? The growth in the field to collaborate and learn more? Not about getting more visitors then someone else. Shame on you all.
Come on people... the rule is ‘no spamming by advertising your own forum’, not ‘no discussion of any other forum’.
If the OP corrected the violation and is not someone who was banned using a proxy, then just let the thread die.
I know that we can mention other forums. But like with the incident before, people were banned for notifying previous members of the forum that it was back up after being hacked multiple times in a row. Some things were taken to far but that was the general principal of it all. I just don't want to see people getting attacked because they were involved with that incident and are only helping out the general community giving them another portal to get the information that they are hoping for.
