I have noticed that recently there has been a spate of requests for help that seemingly point to illegal actions. By that I mean peeps asking why this or that can not be coppied etc.

Also there have been some back habded comments when respected towards helpers have pointed out that the actions may be illegal! Again, there hve been backhanded comments made to those who who leave an innocuous comment, ok a comment that does not really help but in itself not detracting from the original enquirer but an aside.

Given that this is a well respected forum that posters should at least state that their requests are honourable eg making a copy for backup purposes only?

Is there really anything wrong with the odd or humourous reply to a request for help, so long as it does not detract from the original request even though it does not really help?

I have seen some viscous comments directed towards peeps who have given much help and time to others over a long period just for giving an innocuous comment or pointing out that, due to lack of information given in the request for help, the request is for an answer that would give rise to an ileagal action!
