The same rules apply to the FTP as they do to the Zone. Anything still sold or supported commercially is not allowed to be uploaded. The only thing being discouraged is breaking the rules and putting the FTP and/or abime.net under threat. It's nothing to do with "points of view", and there is no reason to think it'll be "destroyed".
All I want is not to worry about people uploading stuff which is blatantly breaking these rules despite being reminded several times not to do it, and to stop receiving emails asking for certain files to be removed because they've been uploaded for the 368,661st time.
