Shouldn't "22 Spam" be merged into "9 Advertising/Solicitation"? Why keep them separate separate?

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 "maligant 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)
