What Qualifies as Hack Talk

Recently I have seen moderators warning users not to talk about hacking when they were simply informing them that they were hacked.

Hack talk is loosely defined as discussing actual hacking. If you simply say you were hacked, you are stating your situation and you are not going into detail on how it was done.

In the future I advise that moderators do not kick or ban users for simply stating that they were hacked. If moderators continue doing this, they will be demoted.

Note: No rules were changed here. This is how it was always meant to be enforced. Users should be able to get help when they have been hacked.
