    This is a growing segment and an issue. Sites such as [edit] are destroying good devs on the store. It is illegal, immoral, and inexcusable. Who would steal from a dev, when the prices are so cheap anyway?

    What do you think?

    I for one believe in the First Amendment to the Constitution of The United States of America. With that said, I have the following motto: it ain't cheating if you don't get caught.

    Oh yes it is. And what in the First Amendment does it say about stealing from honest people. I'm sure you're one of the ones that have helped cause devs go bankrupt. :mad: :p
     
  5. Man you come out with some crazy sh!t sometimes :D
    Excellent!

    On topic, I think we have all discussed this enough here. I think we're all pretty much of the same opinion.

    Bullsh!t. And Article 2, Section 1 is about the responsibilities of the President and Vice President (something George Bush and Dick Cheney need to read)

    I honestly don't give a fuck. Someone has to buy it to crack it so the Devs are getting some money. Like Everydaynormalguy said, it's not cheating unless you get caught.

    Uhh, yea. About that. And even if you don't get caught, you'll have to answer for it eventually. And yes the dev gets the price of a single game, to the hundreds who will get it for free.

    And yes i did google it. I figured it would be better to shootdown EDNG and make a political comment at the same time :).

    Exactly. He got caught. I think the whole point of the saying Is not getting caught, duh.

    Working on figuring out how a conversation about Motochaser turned into a conversation about piracy.... It takes someone really, really low to pirate a $.99 game.
