is it is it fair to say these are all issues
1. flash cart -- in my opinion not a real issue both from precedent on this track as well as repeated arguments over and over on this site where at arguemnt end flash always wins
2. controllers -- while this is a little more extreme than most cases, where do you draw the line? i dont think the controller argument wins either
3. modifications to actual board --ok thats fair, i can see that one both ways, we allow repairs, and most repairs arent just snapping something back in position most repairs invovle replacing a component so arguable a modificavion, i think we need to admit if we're gonna allow repairs then we need to be reasonable on mods. still i wont cry if this gets rejected for the mod i do think thats a reasonable concern
4. concern if the boards are original or repro -- we dont allow even perfect reproducictions that you get with fpga, so if proven repros, yeah, sorry its a reject, the only issue with this argument is i dont know how you prove it. so is burden of proof on submitter to prove its not a repro or is burden of proof on disputer? inc ases when we're unsure either way, what wins?
