Can we say "stalker"? There's some quality quoting for you.
Well, duuuh. have you seen my sig pic? i could add your name right next to -ZENON- if you wish :)
And I see you still didn't get the d that other thread. Maybe if you read it a few hundred more times, it'll hit you.
Nope, still don´t get it. Do you get my point? That what maus did was quote, not promote?
It has something to do with NOT mentioning a "C" word on the forums, whether you're quoting it or not. Unless you're talking about an asscrack or the like.
Uhm... by "C" word i assume you mean "crack", as you would use if you wanted to use pirated software or the likes. What you´re saying is that you can´t mention it? There´s, as far as I know only ONE word that´s entirley prohibited, that would be the word "n-word" as the BBS-rules so niceley put it. All other words is apparently a matter of how you use them, right?
So, if i were to go on about piracy here, i would get banned you think? Well, it obviously would depend on HOW i discuss it. If i blatantly promote it, yeah of course ill get banned (well, if a moderator would find its way to this post that is). But there are many angles talking about piracy, of course.
However, the rules clearly state that;
"Discussion of piracy (especially pertaining to Macromedia Flash) is NOT allowed and will result in a ban."
Here´s an excellent example of how to discuss piracy and "get away" with it.
Forum rules are there as guidlines for moderators and users, so things wont get out of hand. There are tons of rules that gets broken every day.
Basicly, when it comes to BBS´s all over the internet, its all about using common sence.
Now quit obsessing, it's getting tiring.
Sure, if you feel an urge to respond to this, just PM me and we´ll discuss it further. What i basicly tried to get hold of here was simply that maus was not promoting, she was quoting. You took it to another level, and i do see why, im not stupid. However i do not think that it is relevant in the discussion about what´s quoting, and what´s promoting. Am i clear bout this now? :-/
