It's a matter of trust. If a person is known to use illegal practices
to write ReactOS code then even adding one line of code to notepad
makes her/his contribution dangerous for the entity accepting that code.

That's just a blanket statement, nothing more. It's hard to believe
to it if the person(s) publicly accused in using leaked code still
commit to ReactOS without any limitation.
