You could say I'm trying to preserve the environment of overclock.net by attempting to eliminate the discussion of piracy. Feel free to go looking through my other posts, you'll find that the only time I am ever "mean" to anyone is with good reason.
Your aspect of respect and learning: How is vtech1 not willing to learn? He, his own person, not you, believes in this software reviving his hard drive, piracy or not. Why? Because he is in a desperate situation. Now, granted, the virus may be his fault, but does that mean you have to keep accusing him of that? Now, in my opinion, that is wasting posts (which I realize we are doing in off topic discussion). Instead, use that post to help fix the problem and present ways to prevent this in the future.
Edit: vtech1, Forgive me if you are female as I used the word he in place of your name, not she. If you are male, then there is nothing to worry about is there?
