comment How to apply group policy settings to specific local accounts in Windows
@Pacerier if you don't open it through mmc, it'll apply the policies to the whole computer. When you open through mmc, you can choose whether to only apply them to a certain account.

comment Hide Win 8.1 “tip” about “Switch between apps”?
Hey @rudolph you flagged saying your answer was edited with "spam keywords and hyperlinks" but I'm not seeing any recent edits. Is it possible your computer got some kind of toolbar or plugin installed that's adding spam links to pages?

comment How do I press Ctrl+Alt+Delete in VirtualBox?
@Pacerier I had 826 reputation points on May 13th, 2010, and at that time suggested edits weren't a thing, so there would not have been any edit button available. Back then the only way to view source was to know the URL to see the source view, there was no button for it exposed in the UI.

I think the better question is, why are you trying to install Windows 98?

comment USB flash drive not working or is appearing as an empty disk drive, Disk Management reports “No Media” with 0 bytes size
@JakeGould ultimately you should respect the wishes of the person who originally wrote a post if there's disagreement about an edit (unless we're talking something completely inappropriate). I agree though that heading formatting shouldn't be abused to make text stand out (it should be used for headings in long posts), and I think your edits were appropriate.

comment Can I configure Firefox to only show images when purposefully clicked on?
I have edited your question pretty heavily to ensure that it remains an on-topic question for this site. There is no way to ensure that you will block all adult content, so the only solution is the one you already identified: to only allow content to be shown when you specifically click on it. I have therefore changed the question to fit that. If you'd like you can further edit it, just make sure it remains focused on the technical content, not your motivations for doing so.

@Akumaburn I would counter that the voting system is doing a very good job at identifying posts with potential problems. Your perception of "the truth" seems to be tainted by your pursuit of personal profit under the guise of an answer.
