Though on my own RosAsm Board, i am in favour of a "zero sensorship" rule,
for a Board like ReactOS one, keeping completely free from war threads is
a must. There is no limit to what the Anti-Gpl guys are able to do.

Also, forcing to registration would be much more frustrating, IMHO, than
deleting offending and WW3 threads.
