do not respond to any emails like:


"Planet AMD is currently down, we would appreciate it if you
registered at the
following site and posted, thanks!

http://t-warez.com

Thanks,
PlanetAMD64 Staff"

(anyone that registers at a site with warez in the URL should have a
catscan)

Thanks - I don't usually post on PAMD, so wondered what this was all about.
Down the bitbucket!!!

Really? You know I'd never have guessed there was anything remotely dodgy
with a replacement URL like "t-warez.com"... <gd&r>

But I guess it means I may have to consign that email address to the
bitbucket, since it's now in the hands of scumbags.

I'm not sure a catscan would tell you much.

I was sure that everyone was aware of the meaning of "warez".
Warez is the underground name for "illegally obtained software", "cracked
software" or "software + serial number".
Warez sites are also buddies with "crackz" sites, which provide you serial
numbers for "registering" illegal software, "keygens" (key generators) for
generating valid keys and "register" your illegal software, cracks for
modifying program codes and thus avoid time bombs or pop-up reminders.
I was surprised to see warez sites in planetamd front page.
PlanetAMD is a "clean" space with legal downloads.
Didn't even try to go to the suggested "friendly" sites.
Even though you may not download anything from those sites, your machine
would surely get infected with many virus-like things like adware, cookies,
plugins, etc.
Stay away from warez.

It could definitely determine if there were any living gray matter
occupying your cranium!

If you can register at an internet site (however pathetic) you must have
SOME grey matter.
Probably seriously compromised...

They just took it down again. This is not a good thing. And with the new
upgraded forums.
