There was a thread related to antivirus software that eventually led to a member recommending pirated software.
This is unacceptable. Neither illegal activity, nor the promotion of it, will not be tolerated on the forums. I have deleted the offending posts and have warned the poster via PM. Any related activity by any member will result in their immediate suspension.
The forum guidelines have been updated accordingly. No warnings will be given in future.
The distribution of all software, whether open source or proprietary, is protected by legal structures. OpenFree.org respects them all and will honor the law retroactively, via post deletion and user suspension, if a legal authority requests us to do so in cases where the forum membership was previously unaware of the violation and the request is deemed valid.
