Ebay dodgy

Sorry if I am wrong, but that hand holding the CD and the "ARTWORK FOR ILLUSTRATION ONLY" disclaimer always arouses my suspicion...

Unfortunately, we see this time and time again.

Leechers from a community they probably are no part of except to suck dry for their own needs.

Really are scum, damaging and exploiting the hard work of others in a free community. These are the arseholes that cause companies to come down hard on emulation, spoiling it for everyone.

This too has a *small* advantage.
If everybody downloads ALL of those installs, the traffic on the WHDload site will increase rapidly.

Hopefully nobody will bid and keep scumbags like that from making money out of the WHDLoad team's free work. It wouldn't surprise me if the package is supplied with a blacklisted keyfile to boot...

It's a pity there isn't a link on the page where you can instantly report a dodgy product and reasons why. I had a quick look but I'd rather spend time patching than worrying about scum like that...

That fuckwit is also selling a 200 million opt-in email addresses CD. Real nice piece of work eh...

It's probably original in the fact that it is him who has compiled it and produced the shitty label.

But I would be very impressed if it came on a pressed CD, rather than a burned one.

Also the line "CD IS COPYRIGHT TO THE PUBLISHER OF THIS TITLE." is quite impressive. How good the guy has been to go to the extremeties of getting Codetapper's permission to copyright HIS work. I expect Codetapper must have been paid by this guy or gets a commision - yeah, we should all buy this CD !
