    Question Whats a "rom/warez/keygen site" anyway?

    Yeah, I saw the post this afternoon, and I pondered a response for a few hours until I got home from work, and when I went to post something (albeit not something the poster was likely happy to hear) the thread was locked. Good.
    But now I'm curious: what are "rom/wares/keygen" sites anyway? A catchall noun for sites related to unethical activities? I've never heard of it.

    Not only with warez and keygen, people need to step it up with burnt copies. I had a friend tell me the other day one of his friend burnt photoshop and illustrator for him... that's stealing over 1200$ and it's reguarded in most places as "no big deal". Just something I thought I'd add... so maybe somebody would see this and change lol
