    When we're talking about banning at the drop of a hat, I don't think it's funny.
    I'd like a straight up answer. It's fair enough if infractions can be given as a warning, you take it on the chin and live with it. But if a minor infraction causes a ban I'll turn into a lurker and not contribute anymore just in case I say something a mod doesn't like.

    Yes - I still have mine logged even though it was withdrawn.

    Blow out of all proportion again!!! Seems to be becoming a regular thing on here

    Why is everyone so quick to over react?

    Why not give the guy a friendly warning in the thread! Where everyone else can see why has has been warned, and it also stops others repeating the error.
    Everyone is entitled to ask questions, surely it should be those who post up the answer to cracking DRM or were to get warez stuff etc that get the infraction, not the guy who asked the question!!!

    And what about apps like Map Monkey, and DestiPlus, using an illegal SDK! No ones pulled them before and all the peeps who posted howto crack the dll etc! Double standards or what!!!

    It must make some people feel really important this forum


    Automating things like this, if thats what has been done, will ultimately drive other users away IMO, its like all those computer answering machines. There's no personal touch!!!
    That and the seemingly ever hostile little Hitler attitude from certain people.

    If disabling PM's can cause such problems, why is it even there as an option??? PM's from Admin & Mods shouldn't be able to be blocked, only from other forum users.

    All my opinion BTW

    Rant over

    Shame it was Bugbyte that made the original post that I referred to.

    As I said, I tried to talk to him about it. He doesn't wish to be contacted. I see your point about the warning in the thread.

    You could buy the SDK from destinator at one stage. That explains MM. I am not sure about Destiplus. If you believe a forum rule has been broken, report the post and the mods and admins will look at it.

    You are quite entitled to your opinion. There was no automation here. I have not seen anyone except the OP be hostile about this. It is also his right not to receive pm's and emails.

    I believe that I am on the mafia list, so that must mean me as well.

    Well that makes DP one of the My Thread Mafia then

    Which is just as well since you are one of the My Thread Mafia.
