If what he/she's suggesting breaks the forum's rules, it does so whether it's done in threads or in forum PMs. Pure and simple. If you're uncertain if something is against the rules, err on the side of caution and don't post or talk about it here. Just trying to look out for folks and
keep OCN clean.

Correct. Just like paying for internet access doesn't make downloading copyrighted content without permission legal.
