I'm sorry but we can't have that link here.  That site offers a download of the full game Battlezone (PC), which is illegal.  To my knowledge, this site is on the same server BZU was, and BZU had a big issue with the owners of the server hardware threatening to shut the site down due to such links.

For the general safety of the site, I have to remove the links.  I must also note that I do not support piracy, you guys should work to get an actual letter of permission for distribution.  Remember, there is actually no such thing as 'abandon-ware'.

Please don't post such links publicly, it threatens the site.  Get a letter of permission or have the owner of that site get a letter of permission or otherwise find legal precedent that can be argued and its problem solved, but for now, I have to remove those links.

Dude, the guy just said you can't have those links here. We can see you edited your post.

Take them off now.

Battlezone 1 is still under copyright law; redistributing it in any form without permission is illegal.

This site is hosted on a server that previously threatened to have BZU removed for links to the very site you are linking to now. Since then, both BZU and BZ2MD have removed links to it.

You have already received one fair warning from a senior staff member. This is your second. Add the links again and you will receive a one-week ban for linking to illegal content. Re-offend after that and I will permaban you.

just say bz1.net, or somehow not make it a link, and it won't be detected by most searches stupid companies perform.

We are trying to keep this site on the internet, we are not censoring it because we can or due to some kind of old animosity. We try to maintain neutrality as much as we can; links are removed because they must be.

Actually, this is the fault of the users of that site.  They pulled such things (reports to the server host of owning content in BzE) to get links to BzE removed from Battlezone Universe.  As a result, any links to either BzE or Spock's BZ1 made the server host issue warnings and threats to disable the site.  Basically, it you guys hurt yourselves.  As a result, no site hosted on the same same server as BZU was, such as this one, will ever link to either of those two options (unless documented proof of legality can be so linked or included with the link).  Dx is too much of a twit to reproduce his legal permission again so BzE can't be linked.  Spock doesn't have legal permission and is committing an act of piracy (arr maties) and thus cannot be linked either.

Ya guys shot yourselves in the foot.

You are more than welcome to link to your site, so long as it does not host illegal content.

If you do not offer "warez"then linking is fine of course.
