Cracker

    "cracker"

    I have noticed that some members have the status "Cracker" below their avatars.

    1. Who designates that status to members?
    2. What does it mean to be a "cracker" anyway?
    3. How do members "earn" that status?

    The mentors & advisors are the watchdogs and the jury. Greg is the judge.

    It's not for people with whom we simply disagree...rather, it's for those who just cause trouble.

    Note that crackers can't post any more messages although they can still lurk.
