Since the TPB crew was sentenced to jail and for damages I'd say it was agreed upon what they did was illegal regardless of what I think of that.

And the downloaders may be in a situation regardless and more so if uploading is part of it.

For you people who divide the two breaches of laws into different categories I don't know where it counts but I also don't really see how it matters as long as you're sentenced.

Now when someone had modded it up I saw my regular mistake.


I guess it's fairly obvious what I mean but it's such a shitty mistake but since I've always written it wrong.

Also there's also been the word consumers which I've wondered if the one above even existed.

Damnit. Couldn't they let consumers and customers start in the same way? Cunsomers? ;D

Sorry the Internet! Maybe it's all your fault for not letting the Nazis win! Kundschaft and Kostüm. That's more like it for a Swede!

I think troll, overrated and flamebait is too excessively used and don't really think "opinions which isn't those of the majority / I don't like should be censored."

Since if you say speak about Apple or religion or politics and such you may be modded down because of some people not sharing your opinion and that affect your karma if nothing else (AC likely to be modded down to so whatever really) I would say there's a place for AC. Or well. I was trying to until I understood the conversation as such is just as screwed.

Maybe to mod something such lots of people should had had to agree with a very large percentage vs against?

I used to not care much about karma because while I was often modded down I used to post on a good grade (I thought, but now when I think about it I have "no karma bonus" checked to not be modded down as much so that's why I'm always 1 =P, guess I should turn it on for good posts to help them travel upwards (then again they can't be upmodded as much then. But maybe that doesn't matter?)

Because if you reply to someone AC they didn't posted by an account and won't be subscribed to the answer so chances are they will never see it anyway.

So unless it's of interest for everyone it's rather unnecessary to reply since they likely won't see it anyway.

If they ask questions/made statements which begs for a reply it would be way better if they did so from a registered account so like.. you know, one could really answer them!
