Thunder King, Autoit should not be banned. Just because a small minority of people use it for bad, it doesn't mean it should be banned. Look here: https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/ A who forum of 1,000's of users who are using it for good. Do some research before making comments when you have no idea what you are talking about.

Thunderking, Autoit is not malicious. A lot more viruses are written in C, should this language be banned as well? You should be banned from the Internet to save innocent people from having to read your uninformed drivel.
