Simple. Don't mention the job title at all. Questions here should be about your technical problem, not about your job title. As a general rule we don't want or need to know your job title or organization structure. If your question for some reason needs to mention another person, just state the relevant responsibility. This will be far less ambiguous. ...

Or, to look at it from another angle, what sort of old answers about networking were specific to 100Mb ethernet? Apart from a few questions about configuration and compatibility for odd hardware ...

I tried putting what I wanted to say in a comment, but ran out of characters. At home, my four servers are connected via a gigabit switch. This is fast enough for me - I could find fibre cards for the lot and upgrade to a 10gig switch but that's gonna be seriously expensive - something for a home lab doesn't really need fiber.

I believe the closure of your question was mostly due to the kind of reflex action most close-active regulars are developing. It "felt" unprofessional and could have appeared in this form on Yahoo Answers or similar getting a whole bunch of unqualified answers and forgotten forever. Another motivation is that corporate networks normally would not include ...
