Pirates already have an entitlement complex. Why would they want to do stuff for the sites they are using?

Unfortunately...that's not quite true. Steam, and especially Valve's games, have done quite well, despite the customer not owning the game.
..they could do the same thing with Halo for PC. I don't think that's necessarily the reason.

It's open source, it's gonna take a while to catch up
No no no, you got it wrong. It'd be "xXxSEPIROTH666xXx".

it'll appear in some other Slashdot thread until CmdrTaco does a fsck.
So it's going to be in another thread for eternity?
Wow, that is quite unfortunate!
