@tkdlove You did not make one valid point. I wanted to answer your every statement but I gave up. There's no point cause you live in your own world. As I said it's not the filesharing thing that is so important, but the more and more obvious intentions of the ones on top. They just need more and more money. I don't know what you do for living and how much money do you have, but don't you think there are massive abnormalities in income justice? And where did the government start defending personal earnings? They started with the richest ones on the planet. Do you find that normal? Since you live in USA you probably have a pretty decent life, but do you have any idea what is it like in most parts of this planet? Do you know how many paychecks are needed here for one basic consumer basket or whatever you call it? Two! Average family can afford only half of BASIC things they need for normal life (food, clothes, gas). Do you think that's their fault? The only thing that is keeping life bearable are filesharing and warez sites. I need software to learn but I can't buy it. I need music to relax but I can't listen to it. They earn more than enough even without me and others like me not paying for it. And if you're wondering why is standard so low here, here's the answer. About 10 years ago USA made up a reason and bombed the sh** out of my country and every factory, road, bridge, hospital... in it. They took profitable companies, mines, built military camps and they said this is for your own good. I blame both politicians in my country for being dumbasses and some USA politicians in your government at the time for doing that. Belive me you have no idea what your government (with corporations behind it) is capable of if they smell money.
You say we should just sit back, relax and wait. I unfortunately had the chance to learn that if you don't protect yourself no one else will protect you. The whole point is that the people should make as much noise as possible or believe me it wont be good at all for all of us. Have you even read SOPA and PIPA? This was just a sneak preview of what we can expect if we remain quite. It's better to blow up the problem then to underestimate it.
Thanks for the LOL... All I can say is you really don't have a clue what goes on over here... and bombed your country? No factories, hospitals... ect... I am going to assume you mean Iraq and if that is the case I would say you need to quit sitting on the computer, get outside and help rebuild your country. Yes the US tends to do stupid things, no doubt about it but it doesn't mean its citizens are doing great. If I was doing so well why in the XXXX
would I be pirating comics and ebooks? I am on food stamps, college loans and haven't worked in 3 years while I try to finish school so I can get a decent job. My life is FAR from perfect but it still is no excuse. I will pirate while I can, when I can, and what I can but I sure as XXXX
ain't gonna XXXXX
when they shut down some filehosts and claim a world wide calamity... learn to use BT and FPS and quit being a computer n00b.
in the mean time go clean up your country.
