Fair enough. I still think it's silly ...
Actually, it's quite reasonable. Neko has already been harrassed a few times for things that would seem silly. The only way to avoid those hassles entirely is to avoid that subject entirely. If you screw teenaged girls, one day you'll get one who says she's 18 but is really only 17. Boom ! End of life.
Easier to avoid sex with teenagers entirely.
On the other hand, we would welcome it if you put up a site dedicated to abandonware.
On the abandonware part - its legal aspect is questionable, and varies from state to state and country to country,
even if *someone* thinks it's fine to share 20-year-old software created by nonexistent publisher, the legal rights are still out there somewhere,
the publisher could have been taken-over, and even if it were shut down, the legal rights *may* in fact still belong to the debtors or employees and I could keep this going on forever.
Think of a software house that goes bankrupt, gives away its assets to the shareholders (that may include patents and previously released (even unreleased) software) who may have nothing to do with them but to stow away in the basement, but suddenly 20 years later they recall something about the software that shows up on a website and would like to execute on their legally obtained right to recover their money - want to battle them ? no thanks.
It's just too much risk, neko has enough work on the site anyway...
This topic is over I think...
