    Well, in a topic at GBAtemp, my post is removed by mthrite, and he gives me a warn, becuase I posted about torrent links. So is the torrent link is a warez site? Is the torrent links is against the rules of GBAtemp?

    I guess if a torrent held something such as a homebrew pack or something and not hosted on a torrent site (maybe megaupload?) would that be illegal? Because technically a torrent isn't always illegal but pretty much all of them are. Though it doesn't matter that much since if it was something like a homebrew pack or such, no one would be seeding it and it would be easier to just be downloaded. Just my thoughts I guess.

    Name's mthrnite btw.

    I know you were just trying to help, but you broke rule #1 pretty much. Read over the rules, if you have any questions about any of them, you can pm me and I'll explain in more detail. In the meantime, keep your proverbial nose clean and I'll decrease your warn pretty soon.

    Thanks mthrnite! I'll won't post any torrent links and warez links. I'll have to read the rules.

    And let me just say now, if anyone has any issues with a moderators decision just send the mod in question a PM about it. Dont make a stupid thread about it like antonkan did. The mods know what they are doing here, they are mods for a reason, and they know what the rules of the forum are better then anyone of you fools.

    Thanks.
