Come on, folks, seriously! Let's agree that the subject of pirating is taboo for the following reasons: 1. Ladies and gentlemen (and moral cyborgs) on the list should not ask each other whether their copies of Stata are pirated. 2. Nor do or should they ask StataCorp employees (who also are ladies, or gentlemen, or moral cyborgs) to discuss how StataCorp combats pirating. You won't get an answer in any case. On Richard's last question, however, there is one comment from me: the dataset in question looked in complete good order and my guess is that it would never have tickled any -reshape- bug.

Or perhaps pirated copies can't be updated and this is a bug that got fixed after the initial release? * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
