Man these spammers are geniuses...put (NO SPAM) in the thread title to hide the spam.  It's brilliant.  Hopefully this doesn't catch on...what if rapists wear signs that say (NOT A RAPIST)?  They will be raping everybody! D:

I would bet that it is the dual config, stacked fans is just silly.

Stacked fans really only works if they spins in opposite directions.
