You guy are TOO nice! You should neg him to death! Does I have to do all the dirty work around here?

Well, let me say that I don't use pirated software, or condone it. It is theft. OK I can live with a bit of "bending the rules", but not stealing...................
If you wait for SP2, I hear that this does not have anti-pirating features?
Simon...............Bill Gates' dirty work...................yes you are the default value

Bill Gates had nothing to do with that! Either Microsoft! I'm over the compagnie that do software! Computer Software is an industrie that need to be protect if we want feature/security!

See this is what i dont like. I bet yuo guys dont read the FAQ when you come to a new site. Why neg him, it's his first damn post, i know he probably aint coming back cuz he didnt reply by now, but if that was me, i would never come back to AO when i see these responses.

Hey Memory...............I didn't neg him..............I would have thought he would have learned a useful lesson about pirate software from this...........that should be enough?
I actually don't know the answer to the question, as I think it must be fairly obviously pirated stuff, and on some kind of blacklist as a result?
I do not know how it actually works?..........but I do not approve of theft either..........hell If they steal Bill Gates' software, maybe they will steal my wife next..................nah......I don't want to go there now, do I?
