I'll tell you why:
For one, it's illegal. Plain as that.
And so is your pirating. For someone who seems to pose some sense of morality, you sure excel at double standards. To note:
.......But I'm still gonna find me another download, because I simply do not buy the proverbial cat in the bag anymore............And a whole lot of other games I simply felt plain cheated with.
So it seems you feel cheated out of ALL games that you've downloaded so far. =P
I didn't buy Uplink either. I liked it, for about half a week. Nice idea, very well done. Then gameplay got repetitive and I deleted it from my harddrive, never to play it again.
And to think you even try to generalize the people here as hypocrites, you are by far worse.
That would have been about 30€ (I'm from the EU) wasted, and nowadays simply no one has the money for this kind of stuff anymore. If I can spend it on food I won't throw it out of the window for a game I only ever wanted out of curiosity anyway. I'm a thief, but a honest one. If I like it I'll buy it. Else, no way.
So if you don't have the money then it justifies your stealing? That's a lot of bullshit. Even a 6-year old has more common sense than you do. =P
I've got a lot of stuff on my computer that's not stolen but coded all by meself, and I'd find you and then kill you with my own hands if you touched that stuff.
Sure sure. Well, I'm also sure that if we likewise steal something you've labored on for over two years or so, you'ld understand too. Just like your statement which goes:
I'm sure Introversion understands this better than those crazed fundie moralists in here.
Honest thief, yeah right. What difference does it make if you're an honest thief or not? You're still a thief. Your post oozes with the very same fundalism that you seem to abhor from the guys here, only in the opposite, and quite twisted, direction. Someone who steals and hopes others will understand his point, but at the same time will kill anyone who steals his stuff? I can sum that up in one word: SICK.
