Except they actually come back and say "Hey! Here's a list of files you have that look like they were downloaded from illegal public torrents. You now owe us $48 million dollars."

They don't want you to delete the files or actually comply with copyright laws, they want an obscene unreasonable payday subsidised by the American court system.

You know, if you translate your brainless hate speech into German, it kinda sounds like Hitler. (Imagine short angry guy with mustache screaming the following)

Sprich für dich, du schwach gewollt, lilly-livered Hündin. Ich hasse Ausländer und Kinder, insbesondere diejenigen, die weinen, sind hungrig und fehlende ihre terroristischen Mütter und Väter, weil sie selbst die Luft gesprengt oder habe sich erschossen oder dich für das Leben für den Versuch zu bringen "Tod Amerika" gesperrt.

Ich sage bekommen einige Schläger angeheuert, um eine Kugel durch jeden einzelnen dieser weinerliche Babys im Namen der nationalen Sicherheit bringen, bevor es aufwächst, beginnt verehren einige bis Religion gefickt und dann kommt wieder die Luft zu sprengen Amerika befreit sie von einigen Nutjob dass hätte normalerweise gefoltert sie ihren Tod vor 20.

There was a series of Dell Inspiron laptops (8400? 8500? maybe 5000 series) that had the most ridiculous power connector. It was this big beefy cylinder, with a big beefy cable, where the receptacle on the motherboard was soldered on by three tiny tiny pins. Not even a big thick ground shield solder connection to help handle the physical stress. After a few months the connector would physically come off of the board requiring an RMA to Dell. A friend had three laptops go bad (once I resoldered the connector for him, worked like a charm till it came loose again) before Dell said they wouldn't replace the motherboard anymore. He eventually got them to send him a newer model with the same specs, even took the same power connector, and the problem disappeared.
