    What's the reason why the warez requests and warez links made against the rules? Some newcomers wanted to put the warez request and links.

    And can the GBAtemp staff remove the rules about no warez requests and warez links? Why or why not? Taking out the rules about no warez links and requests would help the newcomers.

    Why the GBAtemp staff didn't risk the community about no warez?

    Because the community itself is worth so much more than allowing warez and thereby threatening the existence of the community.

    I imagine there's probably lots of suit-wearing businesslike people that would love to find a way to shut down GBATemp.

    Banning warez prevents that from happening, and everyone lives happily ever after.

    And why the ROMs would no longer be available to download from GBAtemp in 2003? Get back the ROM downloads on GBAtemp!
