In order to ensure that all content is informative for members and guests, please ensure you adhere to the following rules before posting in the War Room:

Prior to creating a thread:
  1. Use the Search feature for both the War Room and the War Room Archives. If your question remains unanswered, feel free to create a thread.

Creating a thread:
  1. The thread title (and the poll) should list the full product name and version.
  2. The "Why I want to compare" field must contain a legitimate reason. "Which is the best?" or anything of the sort is not acceptable.
  3. Ensure you add a poll so members can opt to vote without posting why, should they wish to do so.

Replying to a thread:
  1. Members reserve the right to simply vote on the poll without posting.
  2. When replying to War Room threads, please ensure you post why you chose your answer. By giving your opinion on all sides, it will greatly allow other members and guests to understand the reasoning behind your choice.
  3. Any response that does not have reasoning/opinion regarding all products being compared will be deleted. Should your post be deleted, you will be notified with the reason so that a new response can be made.
  4. Ensure you stay within the topic of the thread. If you have questions about how a product works, visit the Software Discussions and Security Software sections and post your questions there.
  5. The Report function exists for a reason. Please use this feature instead of going off-topic in a post and highlighting someone else's mistake in public.

Failure to adhere to the rules will result in thread or post removed.

Further rules will be listed in due course.
