Thankyou Dan would be nice to know what i did tho , so i dont repeat it , as i dont know i could once again do the same thing , surely someone should say why , so at least the error if it was one is not repeated or is this just a way to say ones presence is not wanted ?

When I read your post....

In reply to: thx

... I wondered if it was spam or a redirection away from a product by a competitor. A mod could have thought the same thing and removed it per TOS.

Your post didn't bother me, but maybe someone else complained?

In reply to: When I read your post....

Thx grim ,i dont think it could of been mistaken for spam as i have posted several things on different topics but i can see your reasoning and once again thankyou for your feed back , the fact still remains that the software is a pile of junk and if it was touted as anti-spyware and bogus it would have been left alone as i do keep in touch with Eric Howes at spyware warrior and all my postings about bogus/rogue anti-spyware have never been touched , ironically if you type in " reg cure bogus " on yahoo , CNET have put my comments about it and other applications onto the net , last time someone looked it was ranked 7th on yahoo so someones taking notice , guess the bad guys dont like me lol , thx again much appreciated , i did enquire of two moderators and even the top brass so to speak but of yet no reply , odd lol .

It was posted mainly to show the lengths these vendors of junk software will go to , just to justify there software ,i thought it was a good pratical example of how the general public get fobbed off when they take these crooks on , the fact that i never even mentioned spyware made me suspicious straight away , i just told them no thx its crap , then again the powers that be lol , but it would be nice to know why it was removed as it was not only imformative but just got funnier and funnier , well obviously as i have found about to my cost before they probably advertise on cnet lol.

You'd think.

This is not the first time this has come up.

once again thx

In reply to: You'd think.

It would appear that this is not a new subject just a taboo one lol,like i said in previous posts CNET post my opinions on other programs on the net , yet this was nothing more than several emails between me and some moron at the company , who obviously didn't know his **** from his elbow or hers even , i think that who ever removed should come clean and say why , after all the whole purpose of most forums is to inform and help others and not the crooks who try to sell dodgy software using scare tactics , otherwise they might just as well shut it all down and not bother , once again thankyou Dan.
