I flagged this question to the moderators, as the poster admitted to illegally downloading Visual Studio. And herein lies the rub. I abhor piracy in any way, shape, or form. The moderator who declined my flag, stated "Not the software police".
That's fine, but where does SO stand on these issues? I personally believe that the site shouldn't be seen to promote piracy by allowing the question to exist in that form. In fact, the OP didn't even have to admit it - a simple "I tried it on this version and it didn't work either" would have sufficed.
What are your views on this, am I overreacting, and I'd appreciate feedback on why the flag was declined. If we're not software police, then fine - I won't flag that kind of stuff again, but I don't think it promotes a good image either.
