Stardocks did not own the software, the rights belong to Bioware and the publisher, in this case, EA.
Stardocks simply distributes the game, and is ultimately responsible to offer the customer service in case of issues. I understand they were swamped at release. However it took several hours before I decided to make a step-by-step post so people could
1- Avoid the activation issue alltogether if they had not already tried to activate a product and get playing
2- How to fix the problem Stardocks created by forgetting an important package in their distribution package that prevented people from claiming their DLC or Collector Edition items. No official post about the issue was made until morning.
3- The cracked executable did not allow you to play if you did not have a valid serial to install the game, making the "pirated software" argument totally moot and meaningless. It was a temporary solution to allow people to play a product they had paid for, and were unable to play, because on one part from EA's incompetence, and second, from Stardock's mistake in the distribution.
The post was locked after a few hours but let there for everyone to see. It seemed like they wanted to officially say they didn't condode the actions, but if they really thought it was atrocious, they would have deleted the entire post alltogether.
So no, your arguments are flawed and irrelevant to the topic at hand. Stardocks could have deleted that part only. It did not remove the fact I did their job for them by supplying a clear step-by-step guide on how to avoid the issue and second get the DLC working...
In the end, even if they thought it warranted a ban, a simple PM would have been easy and appropriate. I've been modding on a site with millions of visitors for 5 years and also visiting many other communties, never have I heard of being banned without any warning whatsoever.
