:pirate: Shiver Me Timbers and Yo Ho Ho! Hello to all my fellow pirates! You know that's what they call us, the corperate ass holes that don't think they are making enough money off us in the retail stores, so they're gonna try to sue us for filesharing!
Well bring it on!! Because for the million reasons why they say we are stealing, I have a million ways of how we are not!
Let's start with one of the things my Mama taught me when I was growing up, and I'm sure you heard it from your Mamas too. It was "let's learn to SHARE"!! I can remember (and this may say something for my age but I'm going out on a limb! a time I got my ass whooped for not sharing with my sister. From that day on I learned it was better to share (the hard way!. Now a days it's every man (or woman) for himself and to hell with every one else. My Mama is rolling over in her grave right about now. "Didn't the depression teach us anything?" she would say.
Sharing is not a crime. What is a crime is jacking up the prices of things due to "fair competition "to make a buck. Well where does that leave the little guy? Out in the cold with nobody willing to share with him.
If you think about it, somebody had to pay for that file and download it into their computer. At which time they decided to share it with somebody they knew and so on. It's kind of like an old recipe passed down and on to close friends and reletives. But they didn't call that piracy.
But chances are this will not go away quietly, but I am ready for them! I have sharpened my hook and hoisted my sails and I am ready to sail the ruffest sea to proove my Mama was right, YOU SHOULD ALWAYS SHARE WHAT YOU HAVE WITH OTHERS LESS FORTUNATE!
