Let us edit it to read true:
"No console belongs on sp-int unless it is authorised and still owned and used by the people holding the license."
Now let us apply this truth..
1: Anyone that owns a TEST console and is not authorised but accesses sp-int is committing the same offence as anyone doing this using REBUG.
2: Anyone who has modded their RETAIL PS3 to be a true but still UNAUTHORISED TEST console and has accessed sp-int is committing the same offence as anyone doing this using REBUG (To the person who first did this, I know how you did it and it was far far from legal and at least one non-disclosure agreement had to be broken to do it).
Now that the truth is there..
Q: What makes anyone that owns a TEST console but is not authorised to use it on sp-int ANY different to someone using REBUG?
A: NOTHING!! (Apart from a few tantrums because they are no longer part of a small group of people that had ILLEGAL access to sp-int through the use of a PS3 that they ARE NOT authorised to use).
As much as I don't condone piracy the argument that it will affect the developers is weak. If/When this is fixed all AUTHORISED developers will still have access to their network. All UNAUTHORISED access will be shut off more than likely including TEST consoles which is what the UNAUTHORISED people that are complaining are probably truly worried about but are trying to hide behind what appear to be righteous statements.
Now keeping in mind that PSGROOVE like Codename: REBUG claim not to condone piracy, ask yourself this..
Which do you think is the bigger evil unleashed 'without intention' against the developers?
1: Releasing an open source solution like PSGROOVE or it's equivalent that now millions of people are using to hire/download games and pirate them.
2: Releasing a firmware that now a few thousand are doing the wrong thing with on sp-int and can be fixed by S@NY if they really wanted to.
I will finish by saying..
If you own a TEST console and are not authorised and say you DO NOT access sp-int then you are either a LIAR or one of a very very small group of people telling the truth.
For those telling the truth, I respect you.
As for the LIARS and the UNAUTHORISED people that are complaining..
STOP BEING A BUNCH OF F*#KING WHINING HYPOCRITES AND PULL YOUR HEADS IN. YOU SOUND LIKE SPOILED CHILDREN THAT HAVE JUST FOUND OUT THEY HAVE TO SHARE THEIR TOYS. IT IS UP TO THE END USER HOW THEY USE REBUG. JUST LIKE PSGROOVE!!
THERE IS SOMETHING SERIOUSLY WRONG IN A PERSONS MIND WHEN THEY HONESTLY BELIEVE ONLY THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO STEAL SOMETHING WHEN THERE IS NO RIGHT AT ALL.
