8. Don't use crime drama shows as a source when replying to forensics questions unless the original poster says it's okay. Those shows are fiction.I'd like to remind everybody that this community is all about getting things right. It's not about getting things wrong.
In practical terms, this means that from now on, I'm going to be giving people who use shows like CSI* as if they're a legitimate source on actual forensic work a warning.
