My personal view is that no Sym Employee should be asking technical questions about our products on this forum ...

I think it is reasonable to ask things such as 3rd party product /hardware questions, or 'environmental' questions as it is not always possible to recreate a big environment in-house, but questions about the product should be asked inside symantec only.
