Follow Up on the No ROMs - March 04,2001 by JoseQ
Update (4/10): Read this. That's the main reason why I took the ROMs offline.
Since there were so many comments posted on the "No ROMs" news from last night, I thought it would be best for me to post a follow-up on the main page to clear a few of the points that seemed to pop-up more consistently. The first one being that the emulation scene is 'dying'. I have said it before, and I will say it again: Emulation will never die. I'm still not sure how this scene has always had this weird feeling as if it were dying, but it's felt like that ever since I started following it three years ago. However, it has never fallen, and I don't think it ever will.
Many developers have also stated numerous times that they don't really care about the popularity of their emulators in particular (check out the Bliss site for example). And it's true. Most of those emulators would continue being developed if the actual user was the developer him/herself. Therefore, emulation will never cease to exist as there will always be someone, somewhere who will want to build a software emulator for some cool gaming hardware out there. I know I would if I had the time, devotion and talent these guys have.
I also want to thank the true EmuViewers that truly support the site, and voiced their liking of the site, even though it won't have any ROM downloads for the time being. I'm very glad you feel that way, and I'm also honored to have you as readers.
There's way too many comments for me to reply to them all, but if you have any concerns, comments, ideas or suggestions, feel free to post them below this article and I'll see if I can reply to them one by one. I was overwhelmed with the response to the initial posting, since I went to bed right after posting it, and woke up to find 52 messages in there already (and counting). Many thanks to all of you, and I hope EmuViews can continue to have a long life... even maybe with ROMs back at some point...

this place is packed with idiots. no wonder you took the roms down -- who wants to cater to idiots?

posting a message is EASY folks. if you can't figure it out or don't have anything to say, visit www.suicide-tips.com instead.

ROMs are only illegal if the person that downloads them does not own the game. ROMs are made for back-ups. Add something to this page that says to only download these if you own the game, then you should have no problems
