So he should stop because AJ answered although his questions were
completely answered?

Well I read all emails in the thread and IMO yours was the one that
was closest to a flame. I assume that it wasn't meant to be, but
accusing others of flaming doesn't give you respectability.

Again this logic doesn't seem to work for me. If I was offering warez on
my server I couldn't become legal again by just removing it. My prior
action would still get me sued, doesn't it? And no, just saying I
thought it was okay, doesn't help me either.
