    It would be good for this to be made a sticky, but then again in my opinion not many people probably even look at the stickied posts because they just think that they would be about the rules, as this thread is. But that is just my opinion.

    Sounds about right.
    Most people who don't read the rules don't read stickies either. They just make an account and post for help.
    One even said directly "the point of downloading is so I don't have to buy the game", needless to say that member got banned quickly after. But that does prove that people don't read the rules.

    ...that flame and insult the staff...
    Thank you for bringing that up, as that is what prompted this in the first place, and I forgot it...
    uh, the whole point of downloading it is so i don't have to buy it... and if i bought it I would just play using the disk i bought...
    Also, I don't care if it's illegal.
    But this is also a community that practically aids in piracy, which is killing the video game industry.
    And it figures, the ONE quote I wanted I forget where it was... and can't find it, but in a nutshell the MODERATOR was talked back to about the content of the thread. These are the things that get to me.
    Give credit where credit is due. If it helps you, click "thanks" on ANY guide I link.

    So that our position is clarified, it takes quite a bit more than this to get banned from Wiihacks, and a ban for legitimate members is only carried out after significant consideration.

    The member in question did receive a reprimand for ignoring our policies and is currently without posting privileges, but is not banned from the forum.

    Is the name of this thread referencing the classic Open Letter to Hobbyist? If so I'm sure it will have as much of an effect on piracy as Bill Gates did nearly 35 years ago. lol Piracy and hacking have gone hand in hand since the beginning of modern technology. There is nothing you, I, or anyone else can do to stop people from asking dumb questions or admitting piracy so the best thing to do is just sit back, let the mods do their job, try not to contribute, and maybe get a good laugh in the process.

    Unless I'm mistaken, Mr. Bill ripped off what... Xerox? Relating to Windows. Technology and know-how are neither "good" nor "evil"; rather the individual's application towards an end that could such a judgment be passed. As far as constructive contribution, all are welcome (though I suspect you mean otherwise, of course).

    I have never actually heard of this reference, I just know that phrase-segment as a standard part of the English lexicon as a whole. Either way, I just felt as tho I could not stand idly by and longer, "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." There is a quotation for you.

    P.S. thank you for bumping this, it would be in bad taste for me to do so. LOL

    I didn't mean any offense by my post and I'm sorry if I did. I wasn't trying to flame or troll. My first question was serious because when I read the thread title and read the content I couldn't help but think the op was referencing Bills classic letter. Maybe I'm being a little too geeky and it wasn't referencing anything. Then I interjected a little of my own opinion on the subject and on the jobs the mods do on this site. Part of the reason I signed up to this site is the way you guys shut people down and change thread titles...Classic. Hence the sit back and laugh part. I personally don't pass judgment on anyone. A person can be as righteous or as much of a pirate as they want for all I care or it effects my life. Without being too specific on my stance I tend to favor the dark side and know a thing or two about a thing or two. And you really don't want to get me started on Gates or Windows.

    No worries, my response was simply a reply --- never came across to me as a troll or antagonizing, relax
