It would take up less Forum real estate if it where only posted here. :)
but, by posting Only here, it would not be easy to 'discuss', with all the different topics it would be confusing, maybe the better solution is open a new room (category) in the forum for these threads.

exactly, don't know why that needs to be repeated again, it's so obvious that a dedicated thread can't be used for discussion at all. Already nice that those starting new threads still drop a note here as well  ;)

Consolidating into one thread frees up forum clutter.
Posting here and in it's own thread only causes more clutter.

And why can't it be discussed in this thread ???

discuss in this thread, when ten different sorts of warnings about new web threats are posted everyday, would be the worse mess ever...weren't you the one asking me (kindly  ;D ) one day to avoid commenting posts in the "updates" thread, isn't it the same here ???

Updates are simply notifications of program updates.

Security warnings sometimes require a discussion.

Just trying to keep the pages from scrolling by.
If it doesn't bother you, then be my guest, post away.

thanks  ;D But I'd rather stick to what I think is the best, and it seems a few others are sharing my views. I can't seriously imagine a discussion about Chrome last vulnerability, suddenly interrupted by three posts about Adobe Flash, and eventually a new discussion starting in the middle of that. That would drive everyone nuts here. And updates can also be discussed by the way  :)

agree!

Bob, Logos said it well, imagine you post a spam warning and I post a warning about a new security hole, others want to talk about spam to you and some other want to talk about that security hole to me, how we can do both together? I don't think opening a new thread bother the site forum resources, but I just think doing that in general forum together with new users question would speed up that category too fast and some questions would move to next page unanswered.

so I think it would be better to have different category in forum home page for that.

It isn't site resources but site clutter that concerns me.
At present, I can't keep up with all the posts but as I said before, What ever...  ( I'm not a moderator so whatever I or any ofthe others say and do,
really doesn't matter anyway}

Bob, both your age and forum reputation tell me that I must listen to you and do same what you say ;)
and I only told you my own opinion.  :)

Hi folks,

Opening up this thread was a good idea by Charley's. I fully agree and try to put the various threats I stumble upon linked here. Only thing I find is that sometimes one misses out on some of the issues and topics treated here, just because they are not obvious in sight and that is why a lot of visitors do not see them apparently.....
On the other hand I agree with Logos here that the long topic thread gives less room to discuss a particular topic. That is another point.
The "cluttering and resources take"n is not such a good argument, because I only give a link to click through to read the extensive message in the subject thread that I would have posted anyways. One more link and hi malware fighters... polonus, is not much of eating up resources, well that is m.h.o. and that is why there is different people and different views in this world,

Cybersecurity is more of an attitude than anything else. Avast Evangelists.

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!

There is a big difference between clutter and resources.   One really has nothing to do with the other.
