Well I certainly wouldn't support illegality, but there might be a better chance of his reaching a solution to his delemma if he used a pm rather than a public broadcast - btw if you pm me you will be no further ahead than you are now - look around, its easy to spot those who dabble on the dark side and I ain't talking ppc

Morally, this is wrong.
