the point is the DCC feature is abused every time it is used as part of mass file trading, plus it's illegal
I assume that should have read 'which is illegal'. Many have drawn conclusions that 'mass file trading' equals 'illegal file trading', nobody denys it is used for that (and it would even be safe to say the majority of mass file trading IS illegal file trading), but the difference still remains, valid uses and legitimate users still remain.
I do not and will not contribute to something like that
And you really believe that helping 'legitimate' users hasn't ever helped illegal file sharing? It's meant to be about morals, but in the case of this webboard it seems more about legal accountability to me. Throw a disclaimer down someones throat then point them on their way to one of the sticky posts.
