Hi, I am the moderator for the ChaCha. I received a report for warez. There is no warez posted, and I see no edited posts.
I see a user suggested 4shared (which was reported). He never said adw "EX" which is the paid app, he said adw, which is free. 4shared hosts all kinds of things, free and paid. XDA is not against 4shared, or getting free apps from there, but then honestly just use the market.
Now, if it WAS suggested to go get free, but actually pirated paid apps, XDA is against that. It doesn't support developers, and it's just plain wrong. Also, most apps are cheap.
So please, let's not suggest users to go find pirated apps, I've heard some BAD horror stories about devs adding code that check the files signature/license, and have said apps wipe your sdcard or other things if it's pirated. And again, it's bad to support piracy.
If anyone here has an issue with what I said please PM me.
