Important BFP news

I recieved this in my email today. It's worth a read:

--STATEMENT BEGINS--
--------------------------------------------------------------------

OFFICIAL JKMAG ANNOUNCEMENT - BFP2.5 HOAX

It has come to our attention that there are bogus skinpacks being
advertised on various sites as addons to the popular BFP2 series created by
JKMAG.

These files are in NO WAY connected with JKMAG or the BFP2 series of
skinpacks for JK and MotS.

JKMAG HAS NEVER released a BFP2.5. We WILL NEVER release a BFP2.5

The files advertised as BFP2.5 contain TROJANS which will cause severe
damage to your computer systems and possibly allow remote access by others
to your computer whilst online. It is vital that you do not download these
files, and that you report all instances of them to the proper authorities.

If you see a file anywhere that is not the official endorsed JKMAG BFP2 or
BFP2.1 and that is not linked or mentioned on the JKMAG site, then it has
nothing whatsoever to do with JKMAG, and you download it at your own risk.
We take NO RESPONSIBILITY for damage to your system or files if you do so.

Currently JKMAG has NO PLANS to release a follow up to BFP2.1 in the
version 2 series.

IF we do release a follow-up, it will NOT be called BFP2.5, (or 2 point
anything).
IF we do, this file will ONLY be available from JKMAG first, it will NOT
appear anywhere else before it appears on the JKMAG site, and the first
places that hear about it will be jediknight.net, followed by massassi.net

If you see a file anywhere other than JKMAG that claims to be an official
addon
to the BFP2 or BFP2.1 packs, it is a BOGUS file in violation of the JKMAG
copyright on the BFP name. Report such files immediately to the ISP hosts
of the site in question, and to JKMAG and any/all JK related sites.

DO NOT USE ANY FILE OR PACK THAT CONTAINS A VARIATION ON THE BFP NAME THAT
DOES NOT ACCORD WITH THE ABOVE INFORMATION. You could put your system at
risk if you do so.

JKMAG takes NO RESPONSIBILITY for damage incurred to your system from bogus
files downloaded from unofficial sites. Always download from accredited
oficial domains linked on JKMAG.

REPEAT:
The files currently in circulation under the name BFP2.5 contain a TROJAN
virus. Do not install them, and report all such files to the host site as
violations of terms of service.

Thankyou for your attention.

Hey d00d - heh heh - the top part and the bottom part of that message were meant as private words to you, mate! I didn't expect you to post the whole damn thing! I don't want 10 billion people emailing me about who is going to play Anakin in Episode2 - I already get enough of that!!

D'ya wanna edit that for us, Kurgan?

Sorry, I was really tired when I posted that. I just wanted to get it up on the boards as quickly as possible and then get to bed. I'll edit those parts out, my man, doh! ; P
