Yep, using it still violates their rules. Both Stars and FT still specifically prohibit accessing SharkScope while their client software is running.
I'm not positive Debi if the warnings I've heard about were due to using their HUD or not, but I was thinking their HUD was a fairly recent enhancement, and I've heard of warnings going back probably a couple of years.
I do know for a fact that it's technically *possible* for any Windows native software (i.e. their poker client) to detect the websites that you're visiting. I would just think that if they go to the extent of detecting other illegal software (which we know they do), then why wouldn't they also watch for "illegal" websites? It's pretty trivial to do. And if anyone doubts that, I can write a quick little command-line EXE to demonstrate it.
At any rate, my concern would be that since it's specifically prohibited by their terms, they could choose to start detecting it if they haven't before. I would caution folks to tread carefully here if you value your poker accounts.
