I think this has gone on long enough.

Asking others not to host is one thing, but region locking a free homebrew is a joke, and inserting drm with suicide code is flat out malware.
Those are rare things in the PSP scene, and not something to be proud of.
I mean, your homebrew is free. If you were this worried about cannibalizing your iOS sales, you should never have released a free version.
To require users jump though hoops to use a free homebrew, and make veiled threats if they don't do as you ask, is insulting.
Since this, in all, is just a malware laced "demo" edition to boost sales for your iOS version, I see no reason to allow it to remain.

All that was going on here was a debate.
I just made it clear that my software will simply stop working if hosted just in case someone desided to host it to put it to the test and would of just annoyed anyone not knowing about the DRM in this software and think it simply dosn't work, and while malware has never happened on the PSP dosn't mean that it will never get malware someday so that is another reason to keep controll and make clear to users that the official site is the only option and they will be safe 100%
Also since you made the claim this is malware I request you amend your post for legal resons.
