2. My main point has never been that it is illegal, I'm well aware that you know that. (but chose to ignore it) My main point has always been the hypocrisy of the majority of "Pirates".
I will always prefer people who are at least honest about their dishonesty instead of lying to themselves using elaborate examples from nowhere with zero relevance to the very basic discussion.
If we are discussing the morality of laws my point is that it is immoral to break them because you think they are stupid. You are not in a position to question the validity of every law and then obey only the ones that make sense to you. I agree that the system works slowly so it's full of outdated laws but in this case it's pretty simple; Stealing is illegal and that's what you're doing.  You don't need to wait for the updated version on that one.

There we have it, black on white. You have no personal code, no sense of right and wrong, only law books to dictate what you wrongly believe are your own moral values which vary depending on the country you're in. You do you girlfriend in the butt on Tuesday, it's perfectly fine and it's something you think about and practice all the time. A week later you're visiting relatives in Florida, but the thought of anal sex doesn't enter your mind. In fact, you're disgusted by it because in Florida it's illegal and thus of course very immoral. A week later when you're home again, you start to fantasize again and all you can ever think about is anal sex and why shouldn't you? There's nothing wrong with anal sex.

It's like drinking sour milk because the expiration date says it's fine and then throwing out a perfectly fine milk carton because it's past the expiration date. Blind acceptance of authority as truth.

3.  It doesn't matter if the author of whatever program you steal has not been derived of something physical. He set a price, an admission fee if you will, to use his invention and you found a way to ignore him and use it for free. All you're arguing is that you got away with it and that now it doesn't matter to him anymore. That makes no sense to me. Every time you fire up that program you are laughing in his face. So yeah I'm pretty damn sure the developers would want you to delete it and that they would "benefit" from it.

Fabricating again. I don't laugh at developers, not even metaphorically as you suggest. I've tried being broke and feeling bad about not being able to support an independent developer. The malicious agenda is pure fabrication and it only serves to make me come off as a bad guy so you can turn this into a matter of spite.

Turns out this was a mere alignment conflict.

Myself, a Lawful Neutral is having a discussion with Jayroe, a Chaotic Neutral and Mazza, a Neutral Evil.

Lawful Neutral;
Quote
Characters of this alignment are neutral with regard to good and evil. This does not mean that Lawful Neutral characters are amoral or immoral, or do not have a moral compass; but simply that their moral considerations come a distant second to what their code, tradition or law dictates

Chaotic Neutral:
Quote
A character of this alignment is an individualist who follows his or her own heart, and generally shirks rules and traditions. Good and Evil come a distant second to their need for personal freedom, and the only reliable thing about them is how totally unreliable they are. They typically act out of self-interest, but do not specifically enjoy seeing others suffer

Neutral Evil:
Quote
Characters of this alignment are typically selfish and have no qualms about turning on their allies-of-the-moment. They have no compunctions about harming others to get what they want, but neither will they go out of their way to cause carnage or mayhem when they see no direct benefit to it. They abide by laws for only as long as it is convenient to them

It all makes sense now. Mazza was evil all along.

You asshat.

I'm obviously Chaotic Good.


"Chaotic Good is known as the "Beatific," "Rebel," or "Cynic" alignment. A Chaotic Good character favors change for a greater good, disdains bureaucratic organizations that get in the way of social improvement, and places a high value on personal freedom, not only for oneself, but for others as well. They always intend to do the right thing, but their methods are generally disorganised and often out of alignment with the rest of society. They have no use for those who would try to push them around and tell them what to do.
While they do not have evil intentions, they often do bad things (even if they do not necessarily enjoy doing these things) to people who are, in their opinion, bad people, if it benefits their goal of achieving a greater good, and may show pleasure in doing so. Most elves are Chaotic Good, as are some fey.
Starbuck from Battlestar Galactica, Malcolm Reynolds from Firefly, and Robin Hood are examples of Chaotic Good individuals.[7] Eladrin are the outsider race representing Chaotic Good."

When i dnd i always go Chaotic Good, yo.  Oh, and you're not Lawful Neutral, you're Lawful stupid. You don't follow no code, you just blindly follow the rules society has set you, with no regard to anything else, especially how much sense the rules make.

Pirate Bay offline, shut down by ISP
« Reply #110 on: August 25, 2009, 05:48:26 PM »
File-sharing site The Pirate Bay went down today after its Internet service provider, Black Internet, cut its connection to avoid being fined by the Stockholm district court. A 500,000 Swedish kronor (US$70,000) fine would be the result if Black Internet did not comply with the decision in the district court. The Stockholm court’s decision goes back to May when a number of movie and record companies filed a motion with the court to fine the people behind the Pirate Bay operation, including Black Internet, as long as The Pirate Bay users can access copyright-protected material.

Black Internet isn’t the only operator that sells capacity to The Pirate Bay, but it’s by far the largest. There is some redundancy with capacity from other operators, but not enough for the site to be up and running. A Swedish court apparently decided it is illegal to be an ISP, said former Pirate Bay spokesman Peter Sunde via Twitter today.
This isn’t the first time copyright holders have been able to block The Pirate Bay by taking action against an ISP. The same tactic worked in Denmark, but failed in Italy. There is also a case pending in in Norway, which will go to court Oct. 17. Meanwhile, Global Gaming Factory X is planning to acquire The Pirate Bay. Its shareholders will decide at a meeting Thursday whether the deal should go through.

"A Dutch court has ordered them to to remove all links to the material of a group of Netherlands-based music and film makers.
The trio could face fines of up to $9m (£5.5m) if they do not comply within three months.
However they claim that since selling the file-sharing website in 2006 they no longer have control over it."
