Never said that wasn't true.
Just that this wasn't the place for trolling, there's BeShare, IRC and web 
forums for that :^)

Btw I don't know if it is, but I know it's possible, I saw more incredible 
things on BeShare recently, so...

There I should agree, and everyone should.

I suggest everyone who has this stuff to either delete it, or if they are 
sentimental, to put it into a vault and swallow the key.

I imagine it's frustrating to have all this, and not being able to do anything 
with. Personnally I'm dying to see some parts I always wondered how it was, and 
I don't know what I would do if I had it, but I hope those who got this are 
wise enough not to missuse it, BeOS' sake depends on that.
