For some people, hating and bashing things be they foods, books, music etc.. that others like is all they live for. Their own self-loathing is expressed in hating everything others cherish. Its a fact of life. Drawing attention to these people goads them on. Ignoring them may or may not make them go away.

IANAL however, a detective (criminal not copyright detective) told me that if you secure your network, you have a much higher chance of being convicted purely because you secured it. However if you leave your wireless open, they cant really prove it was you that downloaded it. I have been known to d/l a movie or 2 in my time, but it is very rare for me to do so, because so many of the downloads are so poor in quality. Maybe just my luck but there it is... I now just wait for it to come out on netflix. There has not been a movie in years that was so great that I just HAD to have it. That is the saddest part to me, because I have so many older movies on VHS that I love. Then again, I am getting older so take what I said with a grain of salt.

If Joss gets involved, they could bring jarjar back, I am sure he would kill him with gratuitous amounts of gore quickly. I figure we would see everyone but leiah and luke die if Joss gets involved. While I think Joss is an excellent screenwriter, I am still pissed about Wash.

I am a leaf on the wind, watch me soar.

Snobs are not fun to work for anyway.

Good for the ones you rejected on such a stupid criteria. They probably found real jobs with real companies with real people.

And while you and/or your children/family starve, you will know you got back at that bugger because you were morally right for not giving up an AOL email address.
