Default What is going on with the FAQ's?

Please Login to Remove!

I just looked at a few FAQ articles and they look like they've been fooled with.

Here are some examples

How to wipe ALL personal data from a BlackBerry device? - BlackBerryFAQ

Download BBSAK BlackBerry Swiss Army Knife - BlackBerryFAQ

How do I downgrade the OS on my BlackBerry? - BlackBerryFAQ

I didn't go through and check them all, but wanted to bring it to someone's attention.

Yeah, I just tested and I can edit any page without logging in. You may want to PM Tom.

The FAQ should / needs to be locked down to only allow specific users to edit or add..

To be perfectly honest, the FAQ is so outdated at this point that it should simply be abandoned anyway. Unless it's kept current, which no one has been willing to do for a while, there's no sense in prolonging its life.

Dump it.
