I have been growing ever more disturbed recently over the exploding number of 'Hamachi' servers. At first I had no clue what this was and indeed I thought it may be an alternative to Bukkit or something. Upon further exploration Ive discovered Hamachi is a tool which among other things is a way for people with a pirated copy of minecraft to play on multiplayer servers. Where typically they would be restricted to SP. IE Hamachi allows people to bypass the copyright protection included in the game by Mojang.
It seems clear the only people who have/host hamachi would be those with pirated/illegitimate copies of Minecraft.

So my question is this:
Does PMC support Hamachi servers knowing full well they are pirated copies of Minecraft?

I strongly urge the community to block all 'Hamachi' servers. Keep this community above board.

Hamachi must be some kind of virus, because it can't be uninstalled, and if you try to uninstall it, it just comes back, and slows down your computer

I disagree. People that host using hamachi because they cant port forward, etc. Though some use it for pirated minecraft servers. I still believe that this isn't justifiable to remove hamachi servers. I also have to remind you that most people can still host pirated servers without hamachi, simply setting their onlinemode to false in their server.properties.

Well they should be removed from listing on PMC at any rate.

Allowing them to be listed, in their own category no less, is blatant approval even support of their existence.
