What do I do with these pins do I bend them back, cut them off?

I guess I never payed any attention to them. Just slide the mobo right in there and went on my way. I have removed them before, this last time I left them alone and had no issues.
Tell me if this is strange....
The W32.Nimda worm crippled the servers and routers at work today, making any browsing of the internet impossible. But this forum has no problems... people walk by and say, "Hey, we can get outside again!" and run back to their desk to find that "work-related" sites are still unavailable... not the good 'ole Overclockers forum, it still runs like a dream still. LOL!!-=The Nightmare Build=-
