Just because someone asks about or for the pre-3.0.0 data files does not mean they deserve a harsh response. I doubt most people who ask for them are aware of the legalities involved - I doubt most of the people who are aware of the legalities actually understand the legalities! If someone posts a rude request for the files, then I have no problem with someone giving them a rude response - though I find that polite responses in the face of rude requests works just as well as rude responses and doesn't cause my blood pressure to rise. So I definitely favor polite responses except in response to extremely rude behavior. If someone just asks about the data or wonders where all the splat books are in PCGen, there's a "canned" response I wrote the a number of users have been good about posting in response - and yes, I think it's polite! I'll post on the yahoo board as well just to help diminish the chance that someone will respond rudely to an innocent question.
