Do some of you even realize what you're saying? If you are doing an illegal activity (proven, questionable or otherwise put aside for now) you will be punished.
It's insane to me why everyone whines about the consequences when breaking the law, if you rip a game and share it over torrent with any sum of people you are clearly doing something illegal. Don't even argue back that your torrent usage is completely legit and you only download freeware, this might hold true for 1 of every 1,000,000 who say it. Stop trying to justify an illegal activity with cries about the how the government is snatching the right to privacy.
I am not necessarily against the idea of piracy, although I do not condone or solicit it, but the real bottom line is do it or don't. You have to weigh the consequences of breaking the law against getting off your ass and working to pay for that game.
