Why can't we have threads on Kazza

I believe that Kazaa is a perfectly legal program as long as it is not used to download copyright material therefore why does the forum editor close down any kazaa threads?

Plenty of discussion here.

It usually gets into a 'NO YUO!' debacle. there are Kazaa forums as a quick Google will reveal.

But sadly 'Eric Jones Snr' the last legal Kazaa user passed away last Wendesday afternoon while searching for African Swallow mating chirps (wave files).

I think they made hand guns illegal for the same reason, some tend to use them for things other than firing at cans.

As per post heading- You can have threads about Kazza, providing it is not recommending any illegal activities and such like.The thread that rev.bem indicates, is still open for further discussions, so why not add to that.

doesn't "close down any kazaa threads", he closes those that involve discussions about how to download music and software illegally. The fact is that the vast majority of people using Kazaa are doing so because they are downloading copyright-protected music without paying for it - which is illegal, and we will not support threads that discuss how to do it.

I hope that's cleared up the confusion?

I thought i read somewhere that they were going to put a tax on blank vhs, audio tapes and cd,s, and the procedes being given to the copyrights board, to cure this problem.
