    I never understood the logic of stealing something that was streaming onto my property.
    If someone talks and I listen, am I also stealing their words... Ok, I pulled an all nighter, and I am not making sense.

    Technically, it's not stealing; it's copyright infringement. No one is going to jail over sharing music/movies/etc., because they're not being charged by the government in a criminal case. These are civil charges being brought by a third party (the RIAA or whomever) over copyright infringement.

    I've actually seen these commercials on tv.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    Isn't that advocating piracy?

    samsung. I have warned you quite a few times about this kind of talk about torrents. I have overlooked it in the past however you do not seem to get it so i guess further action is needed.

    Piracy is wrong! Sure lots of people do it and we can probably not stop them but what I can stop is the discussion of it here. IMHO most of the stuff we discuss here on the forum is so borderline that there is no need to add talk of torrents to the mix. If you feel you must engage in the discussion of illegal file sharing there are plenty of warez/torrent forms out there.
