    the inglourious basterds thread.

    My comment from the thread i presume your refering to.

I know of tons of other well established "big" sites that would delete this thread in a flash. Could be seen as allowing the promotion of piracy.

    People were advertising the fact that the film was available to illegally aquire now.

    Just one of those things m8. Same as why can you sell a modded xbox360 but as soon as you mention Nintendo DS carts you get thread pulled. Modded 360s are aimed at one thing - NDS carts can also be used for legit media players and homebrew.

    Some things just dont make sense... but its not worth it tbh

    I didn't say there was. I'm just asking why they allow the advertising of piracy on this site. I don't think their affiliates would be best pleased.

    This thread was also meant for feedback.

    if they allow the illegal sale of modded consoles (which is a criminal offence) then I hardly think they will have a problem with letting people do things that are perfectly legal (ie talking about films being available to download)

    no they can't as you are selling a modchip along with the console.

    I'm not sure what you're suggesting/asking there.

    But, i'll admit, i do pirate some stuff (mainly US TV). But I don't think that it should be talked about in here.

    That's why i want a mod to respond.

    As long as the posts within the thread don't link to any download sites/torrents then it's just another discussion topic in misc.

    We don't condone piracy and indeed won't tolerate any post which contains links to material of a dubious nature.

    then its flashed not modded surely?
    Having said that I know someone who was raided by TS for flashing xboxes, not sure if it went to court, but he lost all his stuff, so not too sure if thats illegal too.

    modded/modified.

    Same can be said for modchip really though. As flashing is modifying the chipset.

    Modchip selling (including installed in a console) is most definately against the law as it has been tested in court, and the appeal failed. It's also a criminal offence, unlike downloading, which is what I meant by if they allow them to be sold, talking about downloading is highly unlikely ever to be stopped. Not saying i agree with it, but thats my view. I don't allow it on my forum!
    Obviously the chances of someone selling one console getting a knock on the door is practically zero, but as this site is allowing it, then Paul could.
    Don't understand why certain types of mods aren't allowed and others are though!

    But i don't mind if you think i'm racist.............whatever floats your boat.

    Who cares about piracy anyway?
    Its a victimless crime (as long as you do it yourself, not buy from the bloke in the pub)
