I have seen, on occasion, a few snippets from EE-only modules slip into answers. I have even very nearly been guilty of it myself.

What is the policy for flagging these other than an edit to remove the offending code? Is there an appropriate or suggest moderator flag?

Per the direction of Mosses Akizian, I have just sent the following email to copyright@ebay.com, with cc to Mosses and to Vinai Kopp:

To whom it may concern:

I am a two year veteran of Magento U developer training, working under Vinai Kopp, Beth Gomez, and Susie Sedlacek. I am also a moderator pro tempore of the Magento-specific StackExchange site located at http://magento.stackexchange.com. This site is a community-driven question and answer forum for asking and solving application and development questions regarding Magento.

Recently a question was asked (Enterprise Edition Code in Examples) in the meta section of the site regarding the inclusion of Enterprise Edition code in the body of questions or answers. While the community has a sense that (unnecessarily) including vast sections of EE code should not be allowed, there is a question as to how much code would be acceptable.

I/we believe it is in the best interest of eBay to allow for the fair and reasonable inclusion of a few relevant lines of restricted-license code on the rare occasion when the need arises. We the community would appreciate some guidance on this issue, and we the moderators will gladly edit posts as appropriate should those posts include an excessive and unnecessary amount of restricted-license code.

Please feel free to reply to me directly or to respond to the question which I have linked in the body of this email

Kind regards, Ben Marks
