Your post needs to be appropriate to the forum that you post into.
Only staff may respond in the Am I infected forum or HJT forum.
One just needs to be circumspect in posting and insure the post is relevant.
ask then why, when ordinary members (myself included)DO reply to threads in the Am I Infected Section , we do NOT see a note similar to this http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/50278/hijackthis-rules-violation/
If the 'Am I Infected' Section is intended FOR staff only
to reply to maybe it could be moved TO be within the auspices OF the HJT section ????
Also, if the Am I Infected Section IS for Staff only to reply to, how may NON staff members 'demonstrate' to the Staff any skills they may have with identifying and cleaning infections from computers and, therefore gain accreditation/approval for possible promotion TO a Staff position?
