Instead of people giving reasons why there shouldn't
be registry manipulation commands in mIRC, why dont you give some reasons why there should
be? I can't think of any reason why it is reasonably necessary
to have that sort of access built into mIRC.
You must keep in mind that not everyone knows how to work with COM Objects, and probably doesn't care too either!
- Well if they really want to use the registry then they've got a reason to care haven't they?
As far as shooting down your idea, I think you'll find most people are simply giving reasons why there's little need for this feature in mIRC. As the 'forum guidelines' thread also says: "You should try to stick to ideas that would help lots of people". I don't see this feature helping many people, do you?
