    somewhere
    warez has different definitions
    in your case it was probably a link to a backup of a game which breaks the rule on piracy
    another definition is shovelware
    its when a software or game is rushed or made so bad with little testing just to make quick cash

    The "Create thread" process already makes you look into a "Similar threads" list before it let's you create a thread, perhaps it should get a "let me google that for you" check also.

    As Scarlet said, Warez is anything pirated that has copyright on it.
    Don't share warez, it's illegal and against forum rules :teach:

    Edit: closed per OP his request.
