It is because people were getting rep and badges just for posting crap in the chillout room.

OK, understood. It is a right decision. I believe. Rep should be given and received for something helpful, not for posting a nice Youtube video or joke.

Excellent idea John, it's just a shame we can't still rep Airbot for posting the original information as it is VERY helpful & informative.

Would be nice to clean this thread up as it's become more of a chat room than an informative thread

Maybe the helpful info that started this thread can be reformatted and moved to another section of the forums and made a sticky, that way this thread can continue to exist as there's nothing wrong with it going on as it is imo.

Who does that??
J/k, I fully agree. The chillout room should be for that, not for hanging out indefinitely (mea culpa, mea maxima culpa)
Do I get in trouble for joking with the Admin?

Fully agreed, Airbot deserves the credit
Couldn't there be a forum for site specific (not necessarily Windows 7 specific) topics? I myself would like to know if somebody has info on how to set up a Blackberry to view the site correctly, but I don't know where to post it.
