Clarify in community standards...

... that the "No bypassing security restrictions" rule applies even if people are trying to gain access to their own equipment.

 

I think it is fairly clear why this is a thing (how can we be sure that they are telling the truth about it being their own equipment) but considering how often threads get locked for it, I think it would make sense for it to be explicitly stated in the community standards like this (see my underlined addition):

 

  • Discussion on engaging in hacking or cracking is not allowed, including:
    • Bypassing security features (even if you own the device or data you are trying to access), restrictions, or filters (including parental filters, school restrictions, or workplace monitoring)

Thanks for reading all this by the way!

By the way, my desktop is a docked laptop. Get over it, No seriously, I have an exterrnal monitor, keyboard, mouse, headset, ethernet and cooling fans all connected. Using it feels no different to a desktop, it works for several hours if the power goes out, and disconnecting just a few cables gives me something I can take on the go. There's enough power for all games I play and it even copes with basic (and some not-so-basic) video editing. Give it a go - you might just love it.

The rule does not point out if it applies only to yours or someone else's device so you should treat it as an overall ban on any discussion regarding what the rule states.

 

In short, if the rule is not specific, the prohibition is general.

I require no glory, only results.
