Reiteration of Rules (with regards to Social Engineering) #1
Reiteration of Rules (with regards to Social Engineering)

It has recently come to my attention that people were selling stolen items and items resulting from warranty fraud. We've never allowed these types of transactions and we do not promote this type of behavior. Many of the of the transactions we learned of occurred on Discord, which we are unable to moderate on. We do not want the reputation or implications that come with allowing such content. Staff is encouraged to do their job, as usual.

As per our rules:
Quote:Posts involving financial fraud, identity theft, or any other blatantly illegal activities are not allowed. We don't care if you torrent music or movies, but we don't take federal crimes lightly. Take that discussion elsewhere.
These rules are for our protection and yours. Our host doesn't allow it and we don't want it here either.

All threads of this nature have been and will continue to be removed. That said, discussion of ideas and concepts of Social Engineering are (and will always be) allowed. There is a big difference between discussing an activity and actually partaking in it. It is against our forum's principles to encourage behavior that harms others and I want us to have a positive impact on the internet.


Follow the law.

Does this make account cracking against the rules? It's not social engineering but I'm not sure if you'd consider it identity fraud.

isn't torrenting a federal crime as well? https://www.copyright.gov/title17/92chap5.html#506

Yeah it has been for a while now I think. I'm surprised the government hasn't gotten stiffer on companies like BitTorrent. At least I haven't heard them doing so.

I'm not a lawyer, though I do have some experience. My general aim is to allow any discussion, so long as it doesn't harm others or cause us legal trouble. Certain things like fraud or selling stolen items aren't up for discussion.

The act of torrenting? Not at all. It's just a way to share files. Many games/software are available via torrents legally. Whether someone is committing copyright infringement and whether we can be blamed for it is a separate matter.

I'm assuming you mean discussion of bruteforce techniques. Such information can be used to help or harm others. The intent of the reader is something I have no control over.
