Description

Page: https://docs.netgate.com/pfsense/en/latest/network/broadcast-domains.html

Feedback: The section tells what a Broadcast Domain is, but not what its for, what problem it solves, why you need one, and why every network block has one. It says one should avoid switch loops, but doesn't define them, tell why they are bad, or how to correct them,.
