#redirect [[Talk:Code of conduct]]
And maybe substitute "plugging" for something else. Urban dictionary has some very funny definitions on that: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=plugging

== Is ok that "malignant code" is not tolerated on the forum, but is not ok to say is illegal ==
It says is illegal the creation of "malignant code" (I guess that includes things like trojan horses, viruses etc):
Therefore, do not post discussions about or link to criminal solicitation in any form. This includes, but is not limited (...) creation of malignant code (...)
I'm '''not''' saying it should be tolerated here, mostly because Arch forums are not for that. However, the ''creation'' of '''code with pontential malignant uses''' is LEGAL. (and there is no such thing as "malignant code"; code is not good or evil)
About viruses and other malware, the illegal part is the use you give to the code.
So I think that bit should be moved out from the legality section to another part (not sure which one fits)

:Hi Chrisl,
:The intent of this section seems clear to me from the following section (emphasis is mine):
:''In this context, "criminal solicitation" shall mean, "To actively or '''passively inform about,''' facilitate, incite, move, or persuade others to '''some act of lawlessness''' or '''illegal activity'''."''
:Perhaps it is a legally grey (or even white) area in some countries, but providing such information may indeed "passively inform [others] about" illegal activities. As such, to err on the safe side, the existing content seems proper.

[[Forum_Etiquette#Pasting_Pictures_and_Code]] v. [[Pastebin#Pastebin_clients]] warning. -- [[User:Karol|Karol]] ([[User talk:Karol|talk]]) 12:38, 26 May 2013 (UTC)
:I was about to talk about this myself. Below is a copy of what the warning says. These two pages disagree. --[[User:AdamT|AdamT]] ([[User talk:AdamT|talk]]) 04:51, 18 June 2013 (UTC)
:{{Warning|Do not use [http://pastebin.com/ pastebin.com]. It appears to be the most popular site but it is slow, full of adverts, formats the text badly (it will mess up your code) and many people can not even open the site due to aggressive spam filters.}}
