More evidence for The Coding Philosophies of xMule vs aMule
<HopeSeekr> Kubrick was such a member of the Illuminati! i had no idea till i watched [Eyes Wide Shut] [...] <Kry> btw, we should stop talking about (c) stuff... it's against channel rules [...] <HopeSeekr> what's copyrighted? <Kry> the movies, i.e...I'm against the discussion *here* [...] <Kry> Channel owners decide the rules they enforce on their channels [...] <HopeSeekr> I realize that. I also know that aMule is more proprietarily developed than xMule but seeing such blatant proof personally really offends me as a freedom—fighter in an already tyrranical country. P2P is supposed to fight all that. And here you are...bogus rules that do nothing but restrict freedom of thought and expression. <Kry> I don't find it shocking anyway. Happens the same on our forum, and on eMule irc/forum. Call it... preemptive measures.
Full context: Start of #amule buffer: Sat Nov 19 01:42:07 2005 * Now talking in #amule * Topic is '[ http://www.aMule.org — Current Version: 2.0.3 ] — This is an English speaking channel — Please check http://wiki.amule.org and http://forum.amule.org before asking! — MacOS users should visit #MacMule — Don't ask to ask, just ask! — Please do not discuss non—free copyrighted material — Posting ed2k links, violating copyright laws or linking to websites that do, will get you banned.' * Set by Kry on Tue Oct 11 07:59:33 <HopeSeekr> Kry...I see you're on www.incendiary.ws... <HopeSeekr> I had a hell of a time upgrading Drupal; both xmule and incendiary went down, and drupal stayed down until I realized the problem was in the .htaccess file :—/ <HopeSeekr> but both should be up now * bothie|ac has quit IRC (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out)) —> [Kry] TIME —Kry— TIME Too late <Kry> HopeSeekr: I did just look around <Kry> I always do from time to time, saw them down, and guessed some kind of upgrade/etc <HopeSeekr> want to see pretty women? :) <Kry> seems ok now. <HopeSeekr> http://www.incendiary.ws/node/190 <HopeSeekr> pretty pics <Kry> I'm a nicole kidman — centric guy <HopeSeekr> hmm... <HopeSeekr> She's only been in a handful of good movies tho <HopeSeekr> She *requires* a good story to be a good actress <HopeSeekr> Moulin Rouge <HopeSeekr> Eyes Wide Shut <HopeSeekr> and Birth <HopeSeekr> those are my favs /w her in it in that order (best to worst) <HopeSeekr> Kubrick was such a member of the Illuminati! i had no idea till i watched ews <Kry> The Others, I think is the translation of the spanish name "Los Otros" <HopeSeekr> You liked that? <Kry> indeed. <HopeSeekr> She looked hot in it but i found the directing very very subpar <Kry> btw, we should stop talking about (c) stuff <Kry> it's against channel rules <Kry> and I'm sure after enforcing it on lot of people, doing it myself would be slightly incoherent. <HopeSeekr> what's copyrighted? <Kry> the movies, i.e. <HopeSeekr> we're not breaking ANY laws <HopeSeekr> we're having a human discussion <Kry> a human discussion against channel rules <Kry> I'm not against the discussion in any way <Kry> I'm against the discussion *here* <HopeSeekr> ok since this is a public forum and this is shocking, i am posting it on my blog now <Kry> this is not a forum <Kry> and this is public but has rules. <Kry> Channel owners decide the rules they enforce on their channels <Kry> and so, they apply them. this is public as long as you comply to the rules. If you break them, you're out. Simple as that. <HopeSeekr> I realize that. I also know that aMule is more proprietarily developed than xMule but seeing such blatant proof personally really offends me as a freedom—fighter in an already tyrranical country. P2P is supposed to fight all that. And here you are...bogus rules that do nothing but restrict freedom of thought and expression. <Kry> I don't find it shocking anyway.
