The point is saying porting is okay for personal use is not the kind of message we want to put across. We don't like having to deal with porting issues here on the forums or at the site, and the more it is labelled as "ok" in any way the more we do have to deal with it.
Plus, as Kouen mentioned, it is illegal either way. Nobody cares what you do in the comfort of your own home, but it becomes a problem when it gets dragged into the public (ie: this forum).
