    • Misleading material
    In the rules it says you are not allowed to talk about Wares or cracked apps. This rule is stupid, banning people from posting links to infringing content is fair enough but to forbid people to talk about it is ridiculous. In my thread about if people are paying for the 3.0 software update someone was banned just for saying the were going to get it illegally.

    The rule states:
    If you are banning discusion of illegal material then the following forums should not exist:

    Its against the law to decompile or modify closed source software, therefore making jailbreaking illegal.

    So people who are just discussing illegal activities are getting banned, but people who are asking how to jailbreak there iPods and how to break the law are not.

    Why should the Customization forum be gone? There is nothing illegal in Customizing your iPod.

    1) Jailbreaking is not illegal. There's nothing to discuss because it has already been discussed on these fora several times.
    2) Apple can, and has, shut down sites for discussing warez, etc. We absolutely will not allow our forum to fall victim to this. So, we come down extra hard on piracy. If you don't like it, go frequent a other forum.
