I'm thinking you should edit out your edit, buddy
Anyways, a Malware Staff
is someone who has gone all the way through GeekU and is deemed competent to remove malware by him/herself. As you've probably figured out, this is pretty impressive
A Tech Staff
is someone who has graduated from the Tech Academy. You don't apply for the Tech Academy; rather, you are selected for it by one of the TA admins. Basically it's like Malware Staff for the tech forums (e.g. Windows XP).
A Malware Expert
is someone that knows so much about malware removal that it's scary. They're also often tool developers, like S!Ri or sUBs. An Expert might also be someone who's a respected teacher or admin at another forum, like 'KotaGuy. Basically, an Expert knows as much as a GUM but don't teach here.
I think MS and TS can see the same staff forums but TS have mod powers on more forums since there are multiple tech forums and only 1 malware forum. I'm not sure about Experts, since I've never been one. I think their mod powers are similar to MS but they might be able to see some additonal staff forums.
sari, how the heck do you type so quickly and accurately on a Blackberry!?
