Actually, what people are saying is there is no known instance where caching would not be a benefit. You keep claiming it is possible, yet are not posting the scenario in which it could be tested or discussed. I am sure if you could make a valid case for an instance where caching has a negative impact, the development team would implement a toggle for caching or at least disable it in that situation.

The only negative thing I know about cache is it can be hacked... it happened to me when I had a cache mod installed on phpBB2 board, my cache was hacked so when somebody viewed the forums, it would download an executable file to their hard drive.
That was quickly fixed with a cache clear.

Other than that, I can't think of any negatives to caching and I certainly wouldn't live without it because of the speed difference it makes.

@HoL: sorry...
(type mismatch)

@topic:
tested the new, converted board beside the actual running board on the same server and it looks quite faster.

i think it should stay fast until there will be some bad coded mods installed...

If an attacker can write files to your cache directory, they can easily write files directly into your templates.

The templates directory is not chmodded 777.
That is the reason why cache can be written to.
