C'mon man, just let this thing die; we (at least me) won't hold it against you.
I see your point, but couldn't "robbing a bank" still be useful to some people if they don't care about the "ethical" implications? By no means do I think that's the right idea to put across to people, but if you want people to learn, you give them the choice. It's true that you learn from your wrong choices in life.
If I had the choice to go back and time and never write what I did, I probably wouldn't, now knowing the ethical implications involved with such advice, and the anger this would cause.
No it's never a good idea. Even if you don't care about the 'ethical' implications, you're still going to be put behind bars for x years and if you don't have ethics then you may make a mistake like that, which is what the moderators don't want happening; hence, they told you so.
