One question

Why did one of the Admin delete my previous thread ?
(about : Alternative video...)
Did it go against the forum rules ?

Basically, there was a decision made among certain Admin, that threads just asking for people to e-mail software to them should be deleted on the following grounds:
[list]The software requested may be illegal (such as in this case, you did not specify which recording software, and so people could email illegal software).

It clutters up the forum.

It provides a knock-on effect - you post your email address, someone else posts theirs, etc etc and soon spirals out of control. (as indeed it did - many people were spamming with email addresses)

Spam. Many webbots scour forums such as this and harvest email addresses. The removal of the thread stops 3rd parties getting hold of your address.

And finally.... there are already many discussions on the forum outlining how to obtain the software. Please do a search.[/list:u]

I hope this clears it up a bit, and explains why the topic was removed.

Cheers
