When did dcemulation start sponsering backup sites?

Post by JuddWack » Tue Feb 24, 2004 1:31 pm

I found this link on the front page

too bad!

THis is what I mean about consistency. No one can ask about backups, where to get them, how to burn them, how to use them, but it is being advertised for sale on front page? That is the worst type of backups too. Doing it yourself and keeping it yourself is one thing, but this is making money off someone elses hard work.

That site is gonna start making money because of all the people here who want backups or that don't know how to do it or what not, I bet people are gonna be willing to pay 2.00 each. What I would do is remove the link that is in the topic because you can do something about that, that way it would look like we don't support back-ups and not go against our own rules. If someone finds it on the front page, that is fine untill something can be done about it, however they shouldn't find it in this topic.

I was about to remove that link but someone beat me to it... ZacMc *cough'*


I don't know whats lamer:

The fact hes selling backups

The fact he doesn't even have *self booting backups*

The fact he's selling the boot disks and getting referrals from a site that offers it to download for free

:guffaw: :headbash: :? :guffaw:
