    Yes, I was hoping to catch you out and bring up the subject of why other forums allow you to talk about fight club...

    I was on a couple of other vx forums over the weekend and I noticed they allow you to talk about ***** but not to post links to dodgy software etc.

    I think it's strange that we cant even mention it on here but ebay is selling loads of the units anyway and other forums allow you to talk about the interface etc?

    Are we over policing?

    Just my $0.02.

    Edit: Forgot to say, by banning it completely we're pressuming that everyone who mentions it has a cracked copy. Guilty 'till proven innocent?

    If there was an issue with ilegal copies of opcom then surely Ebay would remove the items.
    I have to agree with Lofty as well regarding opcom, its on other VX sites and does not cause an issue. It does seem stange that we cannot discuss the use of Opcom yet we discuss/mention EPC and TIS all the time

    iv seen this on many forums and you can see why they kick off...

    they dont want to be seen allowing piracy for obvious legal resons and thats fair enough but what nobs me off is everyone is allowed to talk about windows xp/vista/7 and i bet a good 80% of the copies they are running are piratated!..

    but they never get asked if its a pirate copy of windows but mention opcom and all hell lets loose.

    We have no problem with users using Opcom at their own risk and many have including me and many post codes on forum to get help

    However if we start offering support for Opcom it opens up a can of worms for example:

    Lets say im having trouble with my Opcom unit and it wont connect to my car, You then get others asking what software im running and they tell me to try such and such version, OH NO where can i get this ? Then we have links, Offers to pm link or software...
    I have used a pirated version and it cost me over £100 to put car right afterwards these are cheap for a reason, Maybe ok for reading codes but i wouldn't suggest using them or even suggest we should offer advise or support for coding items to members cars
    If other forums want to openly discuss Opcom support then that's up to them

    Ok so we need to stop people asking for Part numbers incase we give them the wrong one unless its from a 100% certified VX dealer who always get them right

    The same goes for Wiring diagrams from TIS, remedies from TIS, where do you want me to stop??????

    We can discuss Opcom for codes but we will not be brought into the support side of things, All threads that ask for support whether it be by asking why it doesn't connect or how they can apply crack get deleted No threads as far as i know get deleted if a OP says " I got my Opcom to day and found codes p1234 p12345.
    Any discussions regarding where members can get EPC or TIS get deleted to however afaik anyone asking another member for help with part numbers from EPC stay on forum as long as no pics of EPC or TIS are uploaded

    You shouldn't need to ask because if they want support for Opcom and its genuine they have a full support website at Ilexa we always point them in that direction, And yes their is a law regarding Piracy and for legal reasons we dont want to get involved so best way is not to offer support for these items then we dont open a can of worms where members are asking for links,downloads,support

    Lee no one's saying that ! The linking to illegal pirated copies are not allowed full stop .. No one has said you cant buy them or use them for that fact if a member asks for help with EPC or TIS and another member posts some information from said software then afaik that's ok ( As long as screen shots of software are not posted or if they are only diagram is viewable and not software version or name )were not trying to be a dictatorship where you follow our rules or your gone, We simply ask members not to post links to downloads or Openly discuss support for these items.
    If we did we would have every tom,Dick,Harry asking why EPC wont load on Windows 7 or where can i get latest version of Opcom software.
