mIRC channels (#mIRC) are allowed to distribute mIRC, helpful in the event a user is having difficulties with the download or www.mirc.com.
(Note the FAQ also says "If you have further questions about mIRC, please visit the IRC channel #mIRC on EFnet, IRCnet, Undernet or Dalnet") One would hope a user would realize they should be discussing it with an op in those channels and not accept the file from just "another mIRC user". We (the ops) refer users to www.mirc.com
and/or our own website. We recieve the file from the same source as www.mirc.com
and all other approved download sites ( in other words, from Khaled) and place it on our websites for availability. You would not be getting the file directly from one of us.
