    What happened to my post???

    I posted a thread about the MS keygen controversy...why was it deleted? I received nothing via a PM or anything and it's just news.

    If you read the article...it's basically saying...if you are using it...you will get caught or shutout of XP.

    Whoever deleted it...could you please explain to me what is wrong...I don't think that I've broken any written or unwritten rule here. Sorry about this but I'm just confused.

    I moved it.

    It looked to me that it addressed how to get around MS licensing. Another message in the thread asked for a location to get a warez copy.

    Wouldn't it be easier to just delete the posts of the perspective pirates?

    Thanks for the reply....just keep in mind that awareness of this situation is a must since MS may not be able to differentiate between legitimate copies and illegal copies.

    So, if all of a sudden, YOUR bought and paid for legit copy of XP gets the ax from MS for being a suspect warez copy...you'll hopefully have all your ducks inline (meaning original receipts, upc symbols) in order to be reactivated.

    I do however think that we need to keep open about this for that very reason...

    Do you guys ever sleep?
    The tools of conquest do not necessarily come with bombs and explosions and fallout. There are weapons that are simply thoughts, attitudes, and prejudices to be found only in the minds of men. For the record, prejudices can kill and suspicion can destroy and a thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has a fallout all of its own for the children and the children yet unborn and the pity of it is that these things cannot be confined to the Twilight Zone.
