No to Software Piracy, No to Spam Comments

Lately we've been getting a lot of spam comments, some relating to "cracked" versions of software. We also receive a fair amount of messages seeking commercial software for free, particularly the subscription product enhancements for Revit from Autodesk. 

To prevent spamming on our site, we moderate all comments, and delete spam ones–they're easy to spot because they usually follow the general form, "Your blog is great, and here's a link to something completely unrelated."

(It cracks me up when spammers try to post a comment, and, when that doesn't work, try again three or four times more for good measure–see Einstein's definition of insanity...)

As far as piracy goes, I want to be unequivocally clear:

Revit Add-ons has a zero-tolerance policy for software piracy

We have a tremendous amount of respect for those in our community who publish software, and any piracy or attempted piracy that we become aware of through our site will be reported as appropriate.

Please join us in helping to stop software piracy.

In addition to this post, we've taken the following actions:

So, spammers and pirates, in short, fuhgeddaboudit!
