When posting, we're not allowed to link to abandonware sites. And that's fine, since abandonware is illegal. And the rules state that:
That clearly states that we're not allowed to post any links to abandonware sites. However, nowhere does it mention about linking to FREEWARE sites. Freeware is different from abandonware, and it is fully legal.a. Do not ask for copies of full games that have yet to be released as freeware (“Abandonware” or “Warez”), unless you are interested in legally buying said games. Likewise, do not post any links to any website hosting Abandonware or Warez downloads.
Now I've been told in a post that linking to freeware sites is also forbidden. I don't understand why - as said before, freeware is not abandonware, it's not warez, it's not illegal.
So if freeware is also forbidden, can it be added to the rules please? I asked about this already, and was told to post here.
