Made the account activation by admins required for now. Will see if I can find the time to get a structural fix for this.

I doubt that, or if it is, there are definitely more disgruntled amiga user, since I definitely notice differences between spam accounts.

The location of the IP of the spam you replied to was one of the Netherlands, that is assigned to a Russian hosting company. With a squid proxy server listening on port 80 5555 7777 and 55555. And a deserted apache server on port 8080.

But the spamming is getting really frequent now. I've block quite a few e-mail hosts that have been used for spamming and isn't used for legitimate mail.

Most of these accounts are very easy to detect before they even posted something. So I could quite easily block them out automagically; I've just been too lazy to do it. But now it's getting to a point where I'm deleting around 30 spam accounts a day, and like 3-5spam messages daily. So I'll find a more permanent solution.

Anything you mentioned above is legally risky. There is no such thing as a guide to stay out of risk when doing reverse engineering. Depending on what your reverse engineering and how, you can follow some guidelines to mitigate the risk you could take, and if it would be for a commercial product, a lawyer should in any case be consulted.

Yes, aros has done reverse engineering and without it aros would not exist, leaving the specifics aside, there is no guarantee of potential lawsuits.

Off topic posts are fine but at the very least provide some insight regarding your shared link, a summary at the very least. If you wish to simply share a link because it's interesting, post it on sites like hacker news.

I've deleted ~700 spam accounts and 7 spam posts today; Don't be indistinguishable from a spam bot.

AROS isn't covered under a proprietary license, but a software license (open source). While there are some minor issues with the license these could be solved by a subsequent version which once was talked about but abandoned due to the lack of clarification on the meaning of 'AROS development team'.

Some parts are used in Morphos, under the terms of the AROS public license, and respected as such.

Debian legals issue is with the termination clauses.

There is plenty of interesting case studies regarding software licenses if you'd like to understand these things more.

Thanks for the patch!

Patch applied and committed on both trunk and one of the V0 branches.

It's probably better than the bugs are put on the bug tracker instead of aros-exec, since it'll get simply buried here. I do wish we had a more visible bug tracker, it's a bit hidden away on source forge. (It's also sad that we still use source forge)

Could someone tell me why we still have V0 branches? and what the difference is between the two we have?

Just tried it, it worked for me. If you'd like I can mirror it somewhere.

I've added a tongue-in-cheek one, mainly because I was more inclined to remove the feature all together rather than really reviving it, because to me polls seem a bit silly. But if people really care for it, surely I can create polls once in a while.

Synergy (software kvm) would make for a nice port.
