Legally again, that is something of a sticky whickit and they could quite probably object.

As I said I'll think of a more correct way of phraising this sort of thing on the forum and see what comes about.

Beware the Grue!

Thing is we don't have to share a thing. they won't know that however and they'll actually think we'll do it. so they'll be forced to respond or they'll be left wondering and worrying if we'd actually go through with it. We just need to be convincing about it.

I agree with this principle... but like you, I think it would be interesting to see how long it would take them to get off their butts and say something. I entertain the thought, but am also straight.... so will leave it as just that. An idea.

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.

Smile.
