In this thread a member posts some questions from the Actual Tests practice exam for CEH. We could debate the legality of how they get their questions and answers, but the real question lies in whether to allow this. Another member was quite adament in his thoughts in not allowing this. My response in that post was:

1. Members are responsible and liable for their own posts not the owners of the site.
2. This was from ActualTests. He didn't claim it was from the real CEH exam. We could debate where they get their questions and answers, but I won't do that now. So as far as we know, this is simply a practice exam which is legal. He also didn't just ask for the answers. He gave what he thought the answer should be and why he thought it was wrong. So if anything, this once again proves that, although the legality of such products is debatable, they often have wrong answers, so the decision to use them is considered unwise.
3. Oyle has every right to question the validity of the post and warn against possible backlash from the cert org.
It would be different if he said that he had the following questions on the exam and wasn't sure of the answer. That would break the agreement between the cert org and the exam taker.
We're here to educate, so helping on a practice exam should be encouraged. This is a free and open forum that usually does well moderating itself. Perfect example is when another member posted questions from a different exam's practice test but simply asked for the answers with no mention on what he thought the answers might be. Negrita and a few other members were quick to reply that we at least need a little effort on their part before continuing the discussion. I thought that was a well handle situation.
We're here to help, but we're mostly here to teach. This method requires contributions from the person asking the questions. That's how a mentor/mentee student/teacher relationship is supposed to work. So my initial reaction is to allow it.
What is everyone's feeling on this?
