I received the private message referenced below from Nini Reed today with no explanation as to where a violation occurred. All of my posts and documents are of a helpful nature and I have never posted anything that is not already posted publicly by Cisco. I have two questions.
1.) What does this violation warning mean precisely? It references possible loss of certification and possible ban from future certifications yet provides no substance in the form of an example of a violation.
2.) Why are moderators sending private messages that claim someone violated Cisco policy when not providing an example. I am 100% certain that Nini Reed is mistaken. I have not violated the Cisco candidate conduct policy.
Here is the private message that I received.
" Take note:
To maintain the credibility of Cisco Certification exams, please be mindful of posting information regarding exam questions and details. Please note that releasing such information may be in violation of the Cisco Candidate Conduct Policy http://www.cisco.com/web/learning/downloads/guest/learning/c644/ccmigration_09186a00803641d2.pdf.
Any candidate determined by Cisco to have violated the Candidate Conduct Policy shall, if determined necessary or appropriate by Cisco based upon the seriousness of the incident or violation be made ineligible to register and/or schedule any Cisco examination up to including a lifetime ban and voiding of all previous certifications from the date of such determination.
Also, Cisco does not publish exam passing scores because exam questions and passing scores are subject to change without notice. The number of questions on each exam differs and the number of points per question differs, therefore we are unable to provide you with an exact passmark for any Cisco Career Certification exams. The passing score and the exact number of questions will be displayed on the screen at the beginning your exam. After completing an exam, candidates receive an individualized score report including a score breakout by exam section for pinpointing areas of strength and weakness.
