There is nothing wrong with mentioning the "S" word (scanning) here on APUG.
You just need to understand that scanning, as a topic, is something that we have intentionally decided to avoid here.
It is one of the steps taken to ensure that APUG is relatively unique. And surprise, APUG has prospered.
If you want to start a thread, you could always start one on DPUG, link to it here and ask the mods to lock the APUG thread.
