O.P. Microsoft requests 'Cloning' Plus! scripts to be removed
Yuna Software was contacted by Microsoft with the request to remove 'cloning' scripts from the download database.

This type of script allows you to imitate the person you are talking to by copying certain elements, like their name, personal status message (PSM), and display picture. We don't see any harm in this kind of script. These are things which can also be done by copy/pasting, although that takes a bit more time without a script, but it will result in exactly the same thing.

Microsoft however doesn't see this as a practical joke and contacted us to remove this type of script from the site, referring to CeX Clone in particular, calling these 'malicious scripts'.


We don't want to upset Microsoft, Messenger Plus! wouldn't exist without them. Although I wonder how many people really see this type of script as 'malicious'.

Because of Microsoft's request the following scripts are removed (and their developers informed):
CeX Clone 3.00 by Pedro_Cex, 538,711 downloads
Duplicator 1.2 by Whiz @ WhizWeb Community, 9,282 downloads
Huhu Clone 1.0 by Manix, 474,876 downloads
Huhu Clone 1.3 (FR) by Manix, 143,331 downloads
Steal Contact 1.3 by Florian van Oirschot, 1,208,167 downloads :(
TNT Clone 1.0 (IT) by Massimo Martinez, 115,370 downloads


We will also not allow any new scripts of this type until further notice.

Probably happened because someone pissed off a guy at M$ by imitating him using the CeX script :P

Note that I'm sorry about this, I don't really understand it either but it's out of my control.
