Ah, that's... really strange. Whenever piracy would come up over at the GOG forums, he was always the one arguing fanatically (not an exaggeration) against it. Wonder why he had a sudden change of heart.secondchildren said:Anarki has been suspended for explicitly advocating piracy.

Of course not, and like I told Tommy in another thread, I totally understand why he closed it after seeing what got the first one closed. What I wrote was more to express my displeasure with those people who were saying that stuff than any of the moderators, because the ones who went off-topic with that stuff and got it locked really ruined it for the rest of us.secondchildren said:227,
you're right that topic was not about piracy itself, but about how company deal with it. But the fact is that still lots of people where sublty\less subtly advocating it. You can't deny that those few example I've listed above weren't there.
Honestly, I don't think many of us are in the wrong here. The mods are trying to keep things from crossing over into bad territory, which is their right (and technically what they're there for). Some users were having a good debate about the efficacy and potential repercussions of CDP's methodology when it comes to fighting piracy, which was our right. A few users started to head in a direction that I could see being uncomfortable for mods, and a mod locked it to be on the safe side. A lot of us wish that he hadn't, but I'd imagine that not enforcing the rules puts a lot of pressure on you all.
So we're all still good people. Attractive, too.
