This is the most hypocrital bunch I have ever dealt with. They post all kinds of Warez news & info on the Neo Homepage, and then go Ape **** over things we write. This is my visit to this bull**** site...

I invite you guys' interested in Warez to go to these Warez boards.

Criticism is ok, but please dont post warez on this board.. that includes links to them - Neowin Admin.

I have decided to reply, as if it isnt clear enough with the message board rules, our visitors posting warez or cd-keys, cracks or serials will get us pushed offline eventually. Please remember that we are SPONSORED that means a host has found us to be resourceful enough to host us. That same Host has a very strict policy on warez that we also must abide by. If Microsoft complain to our host that we are posting illegal software (which they did on one occasion months ago with the MSN4 software) that is grounds for removal already.

We have since then only posted what can be considered legal INFO.. not software or crack, serials etc etc, that has not happened. We are NOT responsible for the content on other sites including our affiliates (this is common practice)

I am sorry to see you go.but if you post CD Keys here then expect them to be removed very quickly that is our policy.

Remember ieXbeta? That site posted all sorts of links, uploaded M$ software and had FTP's with WinXP beta version on. They got clamped down on by M$ and then went to a sh*tty news site so M$ DOES stop any warez being promoted.

Lots of people download / have downloaded warez ... the point is links to warez and other stuff like that is ILLEGAL [so is using warez - people do so at THEIR OWN risk].

Half the people on the Neowin forums have downloaded WinXP. Is it for me to criticise them? No. Many people speed and many people steal and then there are people that murder other people... they do so at their own risk. But on an officially run site like Neowin, then don't want to get shutdown when it can be avoided. Asking for info on how to burn WinXP to CD or where to download it from is just too far!

I can read, But it seems that the rules are totally ignored here.

All you have to do is go to the XP discusion center and see all the people who have Windows XP....Humm, and don't try and tell me they are ALL beta testers!!

I know what you mean but we want to give the visitors some freedom.

Discussions about XP are allowed (we don't care where you got your copy from, we are not the MsPolice)

Just don't ask for copies of non free software (or registration keys) and don't post links to warez sites because these things have a more negative effect on Neoin.net than discussions about XP.

That's it really.
