In the light of the recent events I realised that I don't seem to understand most of the wii homebrew dev community. If there wasen't such strict rules about who was allowed to run dev builds and who not there would not be much reason for a leak in the first place. What is there to loose if some additional people test it? Without the (failed) secrecy this wouldn't be news at all. The final product will be free of cost after all and a dire warning of the dangers of untested software is added easily. But while I do not understand it I can accept it. (Including removal of leaked stuff) And why would restricting access even more be a appropriate reaction? If anything it will create anger(on the leaker too but more at the dev imho) and even more interest in leaking it. Imho its immature and counterproductive. But I can accept that too. Not being allowed to talk of upcoming stuff is another matter. Why do you think we should not talk about upcoming homebrew? And why does in not apply upcoming commercial soft and hardware? They have much more to lose after all. Another thing I don't understand is the deletion of whole posts and threads without(!) explanation. What is the rationale behind that? It will inevitably cause someone to ask why it was removed and bring back the original offending content. Why not always close/edit AND give a reason? This seems to be done most of the time. I don’t want to start a flamewar or anything, I only want to understand the reasons. Well and maybe a discussion about a change in policy in case of the later questions.
