My name's Kathleen, I run the site and I tried to contact you weeks ago on the Stardock forum to answer some questions we had. If I would have been able to get hold of you and get the questions answered one way or another, we wouldn't have had to remove your games and none of us would now feel as ambivelent as we do. And it was done with great regret, because almost every single person who works on the site loves your games and usually owns one of them.
Firstly, we were trying to work out whether Goo constituted a DRM, but as you referred to it yourself as a DRM in a previous blog post here, we took you at your word. If you now feel it's not DRM, I'd love to hear what makes you now consider Now, as all of the other content in that section uses no copy protection or DRM of any kind, your content no longer fitted in that category and we ahd to remove it. If we get to the point we've got more straightforward copy protection games listed, we would be able to put those games back.
In relation to the privacy concerns, this is a legitimate issue. Severl people on my forum expressed the same concern. A good chunk of people out there get very worried about what happens to their personal details when they share them with a company.
And in relation to the people who expressed a concern about the necessity of creating an account, I am yet to encounter a website that feels comfortable with random strangers being able to post wherever they like. It's also not a very safe idea. Aside from the work we're doing with Byteshield, our major work involves helping people getting SecuRom off their games. We've been doing that for about a year now, and some of the people we get on our forum are finding their feet with pcs and are not very confident. They do NOT need some spammer making their life difficult.
