      We do not allow threads asking for the community to stress test or throughput test an IP, URL, or any other network resource. The potential for DDOS abuse is too great. Rules have been updated to reflect this.

      Yeah it seems like such requests have been popping up now and then.

      Wasnt that covered under the white-hat clause already?

      I like my uptime down low and my servers all hacked. Can see me droppin' twenty-fours with a router in the rack.
      Ya like ya Switch-Ports hot and ya servers all hacked. If ya pings real high and ya networks pitch black.

      No doubt, but at the same time, stating it explicitly makes it a rule that is easy to cite and leaves no room for ambiguity

      Yes, though it's possible some people may have opened those types of threads with honest intentions. Just clarifying that we can't tell what people's intentions are so these kinds of threads are not allowed.

      Over the past few months we have been met with many challenges within the moderation business. Some that have not been overcome.

      • Speed Qualifiers: We ask you to meet some pretty low minimums to qualify for the Provider tag (5 posts, 14 days). When you spam five quick "+1 good idea" replies to get to the limit, it disappoints us.

      Just for some clarification, it's actually 15 posts correct?

      PS: You’ve essentially told us all that you’ve either 1) neglected to read the selling rules; or 2) are posting seemingly legitimate questions to get to fifteen posts.

      In the OP of THIS current thread (community rules) it's listed as 5 posts, at least at the time of him posting that comment.

      So his question is very legitimate and the text in the OP of this thread should be updated.

      I didn't neglect to read the selling rules nor am I trying to drum up a post count. Just seeking clarification. This thread and the other were conflicting. With this stating it was updating in November 2019.

      Thanks. The way I see it is I'd get the proper information and allow the mods to update the relevant posts.

      My bad. It's rare to see someone post something legitimate in this thread :/

      No problem and completely understand. I've seen a quite a few people spamming random comments or necroing dead threads. Typically named ABCXYZHost variant trying to hit that post count.

    • is there any shortest version of this rules?

      LEMPer is yet another LEMP stack installer (plus cli-based LEMP stack management tool).
      Start your LEMP stack on the realiable cloud VPS instance starting from around $5usd/mo.

    • @masedi said:

      Yes. Break one and getting banned is the shortest version.

      Why do I have the impression that you're pointing a gun at us?

      Yes, but it's well hidden and you'll have to find it. :tongue:

      Don't be so serious. It's just a forum. No one cares what you think anyway.

      The LET Support desk does not allow login or creating tickets, anything wrong there?

      Nvm... Found https://support.lowend.party

      They’re pretty short...unless you don’t read much.
