Hey, this has been a problem in the past so I want to re-emphasize it for the 2008-2009 year, what with NAQT and HSAPQ both having several tournaments going on this weekend:
There is to be no discussion of specific questions, answers, or clues from vendor-produced high school questions until such time as those questions are no longer being sold for tournament use. For NAQT, this means nothing from this year's sets should be discussed until at least summer 2009 (and possibly longer). For HSAPQ, this means nothing from the fall semester sets should be discussed before January 1, 2009. I don't know exactly what the timeframe for other vendors is, but it's your responsibility to find out before you talk about their questions.
No hinting at it, no dancing around it, no anything that could give any sort of advantage to someone reading the thread and then playing the tournaments. Board staff will mercilessly edit out anything that could spoil the integrity of a competition, and repeat offenders may find their ability to post further aggravation restricted.
