Seems more and more threads are recently showing up concerning questionable practices. An easy tipoff for Bit and Lite miners is when a rather large number of graphics cards are involved. It was good to see a forum moderator the other day make it clear that the forum is not going to offer any support to posters that may or may not be involved in shady endeavors.
For the sake of argument, let's say one poster has nothing but good intent, and will be conducting everything legal. The problem with helping that one honest person is this, if he is assisted to get the machine functional, nothing will stop the bad guys from reading the thread and copying the resolve. In essence, the bad guys end up getting helped. So the policy of no help is the right policy.
How many times have we seen threads started of someone that can't remember their password? Yeah, right. That has 'stolen property' stamped all over it. Either that or the owner is a real el stupido to have forgotten it.
Last but not least, then comes the software thieves. Thanks to those morons, we are forced with install limits, mandatory online registrations to even play a game we bought and paid for. This stuff still gets hacked and cracked in spite of all the efforts to stop it and is easily available at a number of pirate sites. Some countries, which I won't openly mention, are S/W bootleggers to the extreme.
Some are snickering reading this right now on how they think they are beating the system and the honest people of this world. May the fleas of a thousand camels infest your armpits!
And for the record, of which has nothing to do with s/w pirate activities, the definition of the user name PirateDog = one who sniffs out, hunts down, and crushes bad guys like a grape! Release the hounds! The hunt is on!
