First what rule? I mean this one. https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showpost.php?p=1915286 What do I mean by non-malware? I mean any program that is NOT malware in the sense that common people use the word, even if those big AV companies have it on their list of programs that their AV software detects as malware. Non-malware means software that absolutely does NOT cause any damage to your computer or files, and absolutely does NOT steal any personal info or crack your login password, etc. Joke programs such as joke.train are non-malware. The big AV companies add these programs to their list of software that their AV software removes, just so they can use an advertising pitch involving how much stuff their AV software can remove. Maybe it would be 10000 known TRUE malwares can be gotten rid of with their AV software, and 100 joke programs are removed which means that they can claim their software can remove 10100 different malwares. This means that they can use this ARTIFICIALLY INFLATED number to boost their sales and earn themselves a few extra bucks!!!! This is a DISHONEST business practice, and I'm surprised that any legit security advising forum like Wilders Security Forums is actually SO GULLIBLE about this that even WSF here includes joke programs in their own definition of what makes a program malware. How do I know that Wilders forums includes joke programs in their definition of malware? Because when enforcing rules regarding malware discussion on the forums, joke programs get treated as if they were actually malware (even though they are NOT actually malware). The proof that what I'm saying about WSF's rules is true is the fact that my thread here asking for a joke program to be sent to me https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?p=2001605 got locked!!!!! This is ridiculous!!!!! If anyone on here thinks that treating joke programs as malware is ridiculous (even to the point of enforcing the "you can't distribute malware" rule when it comes to joke programs), PLEASE SAY SO!!!!! It's important that the people in charge here at the forums get to hear what the general public thinks about this phony designation of joke programs being called malware! So all users here who think that joke programs should be released from the same tight restrictions regarding of REAL malware, PLEASE SPEAK UP! The people in charge won't change anything until those who are under their authority SPEAK UP!!!!!!!!!!
