    I don't really see how this totally involves "warez". If a post like that does come up, I think they should be encouraged not to use those type of programs, but also help them. Slapping them on the hand wouldn't help them, it's their device and can do whatever they want. Now, if someone asks "how do i use **********" or some other type of warez, then I think they should be warned not to ask those questions here. Let's not forget, people are stupid and have to be guided.

    That would generate more spam from noobs who are posting random crap just to raise their post count.

    I can agree with this. People that post those 'Is this site legit' posts would also be at a bit of trouble. Trying to stop spammers has become harder...
