I wouldn't tear any program apart. I have sold some for a lot of money and whatever you have you think is valuable, don't destroy it. Not even to display it. I have sold over 100 on ebay and some of them were marked and autographed which make them even more valuable.
I suppose you have a point, Donna. It's a fine line, isn't it? I mean -- if something is for "personal" use, it really doesn't matter what you do with it. But, at the same time, I suppose you never know when you would want to trade or sell the item, right?
I'll have to think about this before I do anything to programs I have -- or buy any more.
