What I said was, a warning won't do anything. People who know not to do those things won't, so would never see the warning. People who take the risk (including people who are careful about what they do and use) would have already made the decision to before the option gets enabled. It's not that every user is an idiot, it's that a warning when enabling the option doesn't solve anything.
This isn't editing the kernel, or editing xorg.conf files or replacing a system32 dll. This is... installing software from the internet. The same thing you do when you install OpenMW.
The entire stance is that even if someone knows
the risk and decides they'll simply be careful, no, you know better than them and can gate them out of it. It's stupid and arrogant and, and this is the part I genuinely take issue with, requires every part involved to go the extra mile. I understand binary compatibility is an issue, and my proposition is that you heartily request that modders upload their binaries along with the sourcecode and compiling instructions, or link to a git repo. Can't you include some licence that basically makes it so any mod that doesn't comply to it must be removed from nexus?
Cammera, did Null ask for some backup again? I'm sure you have better things to do.
...excuse me? No, is that the game now? Anyone you disagree with is... part of the Macabre League of OpenMW Destroyers now, or something? People agrees with you, when did you see anyone asking if you'd gone to ask for support? Do you even realize how bafflingly stupid
If this argument turned into such a shitshow (What a surprise) is because you guys really like acting attacked over different points of view. You're the ones who have directly lied, went to chatrooms to fish for people being meany means in unrelated discussions, and worn tinfoil hats because people disagreed with you.
No one wants to kill MW or tear OpenMW apart by the feelsies; I expect that if someone feels insulted by something outside this argument, they can talk it over in PMs, but clearly I expect wrong.
