Oh good! Thank you!
I already got in trouble here (Gee that didn't take long did it?) by using img links in a post, pointing to images that are already hosted in the public domain online.
I hit send, and my screen suddenly went black, smoke started pouring out of my computer, and then an ominous message from Router Forums appeared, saying...
"Thy post hath been submitteth, yet will not appeareth, until first being subject to revieweth by the moderators."
Ok, those may not have been the exact words of the message, but it sounded very god like, and I was worried. How could I possibly get in trouble so quickly? My first post outside of this introduction thread and already here come the sirens.
I think what made it worse was not knowing. Which rule did I violate? Making jokes? Check. Posting photos? Check. Not personally taking the photos I posted? Check. Being a smart aleck? Check. At this point, I'm going to jail without bail. Banned probably, for life.
But I couldn't resist... a fellow had made a post looking for the best wireless router, and I had just bought one. I spent a fair amount of research debating on the various brands before I bought mine too, so I felt confident that the one I chose really was the best, and I wanted to post about it. Only the fellow who asked the question apparently hadn't read one single word already posted on this forum prior to asking.
I'm not even sure if he looked at the banner photos. In fact, when you think about all the steps required to join this forum... from picking a user name no one else has used before, to picking a password meeting 5 different conditions, that I'm not likely to remember again... to picking out cars from a matrix of picture captchas to prove you're not C3PO... that's a lot of screen time to complete all of those activities in order to join this forum. Which means, that is a lot of time staring at a big banner that shows a woodworking router with an edge guide working some 2x, and a descriptive heading in all caps that says "ROUTER AND WOODWORKING DISCUSSION COMMUNITY".
Hard to miss, but it apparently still can be missed, as the poster was asking about wireless internet routers, not woodworking routers.
And that's where I stepped in. Because while I may not know much about either type of router, my sophomoric assessment still enabled me to see that wireless internet routers are not truly wireless, as they require, at minimum, two cords to be connected at all times... power and signal. On the other hand, my spiffy new Makita LXT 18V trim router can function completely wirelessly... no cords connected whatsoever.
So I gleefully pointed this out. By linking photos conveniently found online. And got the smack down. Sorry 'bout that.
I'll upload photos from my hard drive.
