Folks,<br><br>I would respectfully ask that you not post links or downloads to any software betas that are clearly protected under NDA agreements in the future. I missed the Safari threads, but I can assure you I would have immediately deleted any posts with this kind of material had a I seen it.<br><br>While I understand that we are all excited about new updates, I would ask that you not attempt to make the Café in a place to distribute these. In my opinion it is wrong to begin with, but beyond that, it puts MacMinute in a very sticky positition.<br><br>I do everything in my power not to interfere in the flow of conversation in the Café, as I am sure the regulars know, but please remember the implications of linking pirated and illegal software on MacMinute.<br><br>I don't want to be a stick-in-the-mud here, but I hope you can all see where I am coming from.<br><br>And so, since I can't monitor the Café 24 hours a day, I would ask that the senior members please let me know if someone attempts to post links for pirated software, so I can delete the thread as soon as possible.<br><br>Cheers,<br><br>Stan
I agree with you totally Stan. Pirated software, however it's obtained, shouldn't be linked for download here.<br><br>What about screenshots Stan? Not that I have any, but for future purposes, let's get that settled here now.<br><br>I'm not sure the legality of it (screenshots) so some clarification from you (and nutty) would be nice. <br><br><br><br>
Honestly, that is still illegal material, protected by non-disclosure agreements. This stuff has no place on MacMinute. The individuals who signed these NDA's and then distributed the software/information, do a disservice to everyone, not to mention breaking the law. MacMinute staffers are privvy to many software/hardware items long before release. This helps us to do our job in bringing you the news as fast as possible. I want to make sure we retain those trusted relationships. Downloads, screenshots, technical details and the like, really undermine our efforts.<br><br>Not sure how to make it any clearer than that. <br><br>Cheers,<br><br>Stan

As far as I know, no one posted any links for v67 here. Because we were admonished not to do that sort ot thing when v64 download links appeared here a while ago, I think we all learned our lesson and did not repeat it with v67.<br><br>
No, it was that for v62, the thread was deleted by Stan or someone, then reappeared. I think it was mentioned by someone here (can't recall who) that posting links wasn't a good idea. Then it was done again for v64.<br><br>v67 screenshots were posted by you I think Mike.<br><br>I asked for clarification and I appreciate the quick response Stan. This way it saves any "I didn't know" responses. <br><br><br><br>

I did not post the screenshot of v67. Check the thread, it was not me. <br><br>I don't know if that thread is still around. I remember who posted the screenshot, but I don't want to put anyone on the spot. <br><br>EDIT: Yeah that thread is still to be found if you look for it. It had no links, just a screenshot. <br><br><P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by mikeb_X on 03/24/03 10:08 AM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>
