You are replying to this message

An NDA is a non-disclosure agreement. Normally, when you sign an NDA you don't talk about the things you are permitted to see. So AOL says to beta testers "we need help testing this software but it's not public yet. you can test it but you can't talk about it." If you want to see this non-public software then you agree to this. When people start talking about it they are probably in violation of the terms of that NDA.

(this isn't intended to be a legal description, but rather a simplified explanation that will hopefull make sense to people who speak english as a second language)
