Windows 7: Windows 7 tells me to format hard drive...?

28 Oct 2012   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I do follow the rules but more importantly I follow the law. I was just taken aback by what appeared to be hostility as I was browsing through posts. It did not appear to me that the OP had suggested doing anything illegal. Seems someone went back and referenced a previous post and brought up something he may or may not have tried in the past but was not discussing in this thread. Perhaps I have made a mistake. I have encountered enough support sites with this pious hostility.

This is my understanding.
We don't knowingly assist anybody that does things to break our rules or laws of the land. Nothing pious about it. Believe me those that run, moderate, and own this site do monitor for such things. When need be they will jump in a thread and state the Forms position and methods of handling such things. The laws of the land may be hard to understand but are rules are not.
Post by me, Layback Bear are mine alone as a member. I do not run, or own this Forum. I'm not a Moderator. I do like the way this Forum is run along with over a quarter of a million other members.
I hope this helps with any misunderstandings.
