Locked: BYOND Terms of Service in BYOND Discussion
Your analogy is terribly flawed, while the knife analogy is perfect. BYOND cannot be cited for supplying you with tools to break laws, as the purpose is to create games that don't.
A gun is produced with the purpose of defense, or sport (hunting etc).
If I owned a gun factory, sold a gun to the army, and that gun was smuggled out of the army warehouse and given to a murderer, I wouldn't be in trouble (and I shouldn't be for that matter). The person who smuggled it out and the murderer would be the people in trouble.
However, what if I sold the gun to a store, which sold it to a respectable hunter that just happened to lose his patience and kill someone, neither the store nor I would be in trouble; only the hunter.
The intent of the seller is all that matters and your intent was to make money off of several games, 3 of which are fan games.
As for the developing thing, it's my opinion that I'm better than you. As it's also your opinion that you're better than everyone else on BYOND.
What if selling a gun to this thug is perfectly legal? If the seller denied giving them this gun, they would probably end up in trouble for this stereotype.
As far as the gun problem goes, criminals would manage to get them regardless. Giving no one a gun could possibly reduce gun crimes in the home, though the number of crimes involving knives and heavy blunt objects would surge.
If BYOND honestly cared about people breaking the copyright laws theyd stop all the ripped games. Since that code, once officialy released for the first time, becomes soul property of the original writer. Basicaly anyone on byond who owns a rip is breaknig copyright laws.
A gun is produced with the purpose of killing. End of story.
You sure as hell SHOULD be in trouble for that. If they actualy punished the people at fault it would probably reduce gun crimes by 50%; because creators would stop throwing guns around so carelessly
My intent is to make money off of MY games. Im not pawning off burnt copies of Burst Limit for my own profit. I'm selling subscriptions to several games of my own that are all 100% originaly coded by me. Though they may use ideas/designs from other games/animes my "intent" is not to make money from those other games/animes. Its not like im selling something that already exists to steal profit away from the original creator. I'm selling something of my own creation
Unless you get some proof (which will be impossible)
Why would it be impossible?
I say we make a BYOND-wide contest to judge who is better than Falacy. We would need some very skilled judges, though.
Why would this require any kind of judges? You just post some code and Ill tell you all the things that suck about it
Ah, yea. I'd forgotten you've shown yourself to be so very adept at that already.
Actually, I was being incredibly sarcastic there. Every bit of your criticisms was pointed out as flawed in replies, meaning your ability at critiquing, quite simply, sucks.
