Once again it's necessary to remind some people that we have a strict rule about inappropriate language in our forum - and that includes words that have asterisks (or other symbols) in place of some of the letters. It isn't necessary for me to go into details about which words are allowed and which aren't - common sense should tell you that - and in any case, if you replace letters with asterisks you're doing it because you know the word isn't acceptable here.
We will not tolerate the posting of links to sites that offer illegal software serial numbers or registration keys.
Neither will we allow threads/posts that ask for, or offer methods of circumventing CD copy protection or other ways of flouting the copyright laws.
We're running a responsible online forum for computer help and advice, and we will not allow it to be used as a vehicle for anything that is illegal, or anything that aids and abets illegal activities.
From today any thread or post that contravenes the above conditions will be deleted immediately it comes to our notice. There'll be no warning, and no further explanation.
We have reason to believe that the vast majority of our forum members support this policy.
If by "someone" you mean VoG then no - my response was to fakir, not you.
I also support the site policy, although I must admit to having transgressed in the past in the "heat of the moment".
There does seem to me to be a slightly grey area - "forgotten passwords", especially to password protected Excel or Word files or similar. I can believe that users could "fit and forget" one of these. I am deeply suspicious of threads about forgotten Windows passwords.
I also totally agree with the site policy.I have in the past been responsible for the closing/deleting of posts by inserting links to sites containing humor of an adult nature and although i try to stop it sometimes i just can't resist it(very childish i know)so i apologise and i will do my best to keep my filthy mind to myself in the future.
