Hi Dark, Yeah, I know. Being a moderator myself I couldn't do anything like that myself, nor allow anyone to do it here on Audyssey either. I was just thinking it would be funny if someone did actually give them an ultimatom of get with the program or just abandon the games altogether. None of this we are working on something, but won't tell you what it is, or we don't read or e-mail because of spam crap. There comes a time when a company like that is just asking for someone to pirate them out of existance or something. HOwever, straight people like you and I will try to honor them even if they don't really deserve it just on principle.
