Trust me. Don't bother touching them if you're an honest person.
I enjoy testing engines, but these ones won't be amongst them.
I'm privy to a lot of things that I can't share.

I wouldn't on principle, but everybody needs to make their own choice.

Please don't shove your morals onto me. I'm not dishonest simply because I have touched the source, compiled it, and made it work in environments that Rybka never will.

You want to treat it like the plague, that's your business. Don't make it mine. The entire forum knows your opinion by now, and I'm tired of reading it every time you post.

Fair enough. You're entitled to your opinion. Sorry you feel annoyed.

Cheers,
Graham.
