  • Questions asking for master passwords to a computer. We have no way of knowing if the computer was stolen, you are trying to break into one, or if it is actually yours.
  • Questions pertaining to any illegal activity.

Illegal Drug Questions
Questions asking street value of illegal drugs are acceptable on site. Questions about how to obtain or use drugs are not allowed.

Asking for Online Account Usernames and Passwords
If you are asking about an online game try asking people how they got that item or how they got to that level instead of just asking for their item or account. In the case of email you can sign up for an email with various online email services so why would you need another person's email password? Finally asking for passwords for servers and admin accounts on websites is considered an attempt at hacking which is a federal offense.
