Default Why Was The FairUse4WM Thread Deleted?

Why was the thread about the FairUse4WM program deleted? The thread did not give instructions on how and where to warez anything. It was a tech news thread discussioning a program that just happened to deal with warez.

Really though, let me get this straight. We can't post links to tech news websites like Engadget anymore because it talks about a warez program (keeping in mind it doesn't condone or gives instructions on how to warez anything).

http://www.engadget.com/2006/08/25/f...ows-media-drm/

Am I banned now for providing the above link?

If you can't be quiet I am going to give you a permanent professional response. Your choice.

Not trying to get banned here just trying to figure out why exactly the thread was deleted.

The moderator deleted it not for the content but for the arguing in it.

I'd suggest that Mike was being friendly because "a professional response" is not what you wanted. (Personally, even if he wasn't friendly, I'd never diss a Board Master on his own board.)
