I was thinking the same thing. Asking is one thing, maintaining said forum is another. I don't know I would be willing to deal with the headaches....

I would like to see this done. I use the forum over at dslreports. I would just make a post about firewalls/av and sticky it then if someone posts with that question, point them to sticky and lock it.

This is exactly what I were thinking and have said before.

I also think that this might broaden the audience of NVNEWS because of the high caliber networking posts that we get from evilghost and retsam. MikeC can even up is advertising a bit and make more money!!!

Okay, Okay. I might have taken the previous paragraph a bit over the top ... regarding the money bit.

We'd have 300 locked threads pointing to the sticky. I'd also get tired of the "Halp, i got virus Y and now my internets is disabled!!1!!oneone".

Serious security questions, sure, I love to help, but I can't stomach the daily Win32 "noise" you see like DSLReports.

Networking & Security could be a viable forum if it were moderated in such a fashion to keep legitimately stupid questions out.

Kinda like the flood of "320MB GTS vs 640MB GTS- which one?" threads we have in the GeForce 7 and 8 forum.
