    1. possibly because it contains sensitive information
    2. may keep the text file from corrupting during transfer (not sure)
    3. so we can have hacking/cracking discussons which arent allowed
    I am just a worthless liar. I am just an imbecile.
    I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well.
    I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave.
    I will work to elevate you just enough to bring you down.

    Agreed. Excellent software.

    a lot of hack/crack groups like to use ASCII art (text art) in their readme files, and while Notepad is a fine text editor, Notepad does not display such text art correctly. so they use the nfo extension and recommend using nfo viewers.

    if you want to see what nfo files are intended to look like, go over to WWW.NFORCE.NL and look at some of the nfos that they&#39;ve converted into picture files. the text art looks very different from how Notepad displays it.
