[bf1942] the pure / unpure server issue - need clarification

any further info regarding a server running in pure mode and the client
having more than the vanilla install, merciless, dc, s9rm and the like.
let's presume for a second that i want to run a pure server, are those
clients then kicked or are they not? what if i clear s9rm and nothing else?

i'm thinking about merciless in particular since one that's installed it is
the main bf1942. if i don't clear merciless would that kick everyone using

is this in any way off topic? if so i apologize and won't persue this in
here anymore :)
i'm just wondering if i'm about to face a crc clearing orgy once 1.4 is here
and mods are updated

best regards,
