He logged into www.emu-uk.com and posted a message in practically every forum there saying how he'd found this "Amazing" site and how we all should check it out.
He has since been banned

I think this guy also did the same thing here, posting his "ad" to a number of different threads. I don't know if he was banned or not though, but I would suspect that he was. You know, a number of people might be tempted to report somebody like this to the IDSA anyway, but when they really get obnoxious about how they try to advertise, I'd think the likelihood that somebody would actually do it increases an awful lot.

RCK is right, I remember well, how much it costed to have a burner, and how much burned software would cost!!

Pirrys would take your HD and back up all your "g4m3z" to CD, and charge a fortune for that.

This thread makes me wonder how many Amiga cracking groups were offering Amiga disks for sale back in the day. If I recall it was quite a few, usually along with PC and console backup equipment.
