(Right! Chinese are evil, somebody told me that all their stuff is packed with viruses and stuff. BTW: Let's ban brands that employ black people. Those guys are evil too. Oh! And Australian products? I heard that Australians are the descendants of criminals... can we ban their exports too? [/sarcasm])
This is like building a home with no doors and leaving a "No entry" sign in the living room.

As I said before: I know that there are pirates and they are pirating and will pirate forever and I don't complain like "I'm not rich because of them". I am making (a bit) of money, my game is fun and not boring, feedback is great
I only want everybody to agree that pirating a 0.99 game is LOW, indecent, unfair. Again: we are not talking about human rights, food, medicines, etc. we are talking about you pirating a 0.99 app while having a 4.99 frapuccino
The companies that bitch about it now so loud, have been making millions/billions of dollars over the years even with piracy around I'm a guy programming for 6 months, paying an illustrator to make drawings and a band to make the music. Thinking that everybody is M$, Apple or Adobe is naive. Or a reason to not to feel guilty for stealing stealing the guy next door
But I would like we all to agree that it's at least a lack of decency and respect for other people's work, there is no fair reason why you would have the right to pirate a 0.99 game.
It's not food, medicines or the right to have a house. It's a 0.99 game that you are pirating while having a 4.99 frapuccino
But the question is why is people still pirating 0.99 $ games? Are you saying that people pirates games because they are not fun? And when will they know that the game was fun? Before or after pirating it?
Even if my game is crap, why are you entitled to enjoy the crap that took me 6 month to produce, paying everybody's salaries, for free?
- Hobbyists don't sell software
- Pro's sell software
That's exactly what I said
Yes, and every hobbyist now has to worry about being sued when their code breaks.
If you are a hobbyist, you should not sell your software. Leave it for the pros
only this single error in written english pisses me off. i don't care about any other things like coz, 2, 4, its/it's. please please everyone, no apostrophe when writing plurals!
I'll try to remember that, it's really a problem to write perfectly one language when you speak 4, but thanks.
Meanwhile you could capitalize the first word of every sentence, proper nouns and "I" (english, i, please)
