By "The enemy" I mean that "other" site that uses JTH's logo and slogan to pimp warez.
Back in February I wrote an article pimping the PortableApps.com menu/suite 1.1, and then updated it when 1.5 came out. I need to write a note about 1.6 but maybe I ought to wait till it comes out of beta.
Anyway, that one guy who mirrors the RapidShare files on various anonymous hosts found my blog and left a comment. My first reaction was to just reject it (my blog doesn't post comments without my approval) but then I figured I'd rather just answer him and state our case. I mean, warez is bad, sure, but do we *really* hate people who use it? Do we really put that much effort into it? No, at least I don't, and as I said in my reply, it's them tarnishing the good name and image JTH and others have worked so hard to build. It was making that point that made his comment worth allowing and replying to.
I don't know if anyone else wants to weigh in or what, but here goes:

//edit: I'm almost certain the user who earned himself a week-long banhammer strike here: https://portableapps.com/node/19093 is the same one who posted on my blog. Similar language. I don't think he copied and pasted though, it's more like he just said the same thing twice.
They must really be desperate to get their stuff out. Note how they advertise VLC and 7-Zip. We have those, and we have the latest versions. Makes you wonder why they want people to use theirs so badly.
