*considers the name in question*

ahh... an obvious case of WHFWI("Watching Hacker Films While Impressionable")

think about it, HackerAlias. Greed is the driving force of civilization, however much you'd like to tell yourself otherwise. Take away the money and what do you have? The richest people are now those with the biggest stick. And the poorest people are those who are dead.

Money will get stolen, that is true. How much would get stolen if a portion of the race weren't dedicated to prevent it? That is why it's illegal. It's like asking, "How much difference will just one newspaper make?" and not recycling one... The problem is that people worldwide are using the same logic, and landfills are overflowing with newspapers.

If you want to steal, that's fine. But don't make it look like you aren't doing anything wrong. YOU ARE STEALING.

Btw, how will people ever "get over" getting robbed? Would you really walk into a bank, rob the place, walk out and say to the cops that they should get over it? They haven't yet, they sure as hell wont get over it in the future

I have KaZaA!!! Guess what!?! I'm the guy who originally posted the file for UpLink. I took it off, but there may be a copy floating around somewhere...

Anyway, it was a C++ compiled .EXE file and all it said was "You can't afford a $25 game, jackass? Go to hell!"

It was fun. I took it off because ppl got angry.

Society is based upon competition. That is an agreed fact.

Nostradamus and others said that greed is the root of all evil.

Greed is a basic element to jealousy.

Jealousy spawns competiton.

Thus, Society is the root of all evil.

Unless of course...

1) You disagree that society is based on competition.
2) You disagree that greed is the basis of all evil.
3) You notice that, even if greed is a basic element to jealousy, it isn't the *only* element.
4) You disagree that all jealousy spawns competition, or that jealousy is the only way to spawn competition, or
5) You disagree that competition is all evil.

Just saying.

Friendly competition can keep people from killing each other in interesting and violent ways.

No competition bottles hundreds of years of rage.

The Hacker ethic is fine and all... but there's a few problems.

Computer programs are a collection of ideas and a creative expression of the programmer(s). Therefore it isnt really an idea so much as a work of art.

Some things should be free. Some things shouldnt. Anyone who follows the Hacker Ethic will find anarchy.

Capitalism, along with everything that drives it, is inherently evil. In fact, capitalism is synonymous with evil.
No, I am not a communist. Communism is a system that is intended to get us to a state of Utopia, but, by its very structure, cannot ever become Utopia.
And sadly, Utopia is something humanity will never achieve. Humaniy is not good enough to achieve it. We have to resort to capitalism just to survive, and cannot exist under any other system (or rather, no other system can exist if we get to it).
But I refuse to acknowledge capitalism as the "one true path" and wilingly become immersed in the system; I will fight for Utopia anyway. To me it is a goal worth fighting for. Therefore, I suppose I live by some variant of the "hacker ethic".

But to get to the original topic:
One thing I can't stand is a STUPID pirate wanna-be. Why do I say "wanna-be"? Because to call these mistakes of nature *pirates* would be an insult to pirates everywhere. If you want to request a warez copy of something, at least have the decency to do it on a WAREZ forum, where such things are normal and you won't get flamed for it! Unless, of course, you act like a complete morron there too, in which case you'll still get flamed. And I've seen this happen quite a bit. I simply cannot stand stupidity on the Internet, especially in the Underground. The two just don't mix.

Also, one other thing has been bugging me for a LONG time. I get infuriated every time I see it. It's the "Warez is stealing - if you can't afford it, don't get it. I can't afford a Mercedes, so is it ok for me to steal one?/I only collect classic cars, I don't drive them, so is it ok for me to steal them?" argument.
There are MAJOR problems with that argument. First and foremost, when you steal a car, the previous owner of it doesn't have a car anymore. You've deprived someone of something they owned. When you download a piece of software, its owner STILL HAS IT. Therefore, the only loss is that the company lost a potential customer. Think abou what that means: POTENTIAL CUSTOMER. That implies that you would BUY the software if it were not available to you for free. That, however, is a gross misconception. Often you would NOT purchase something whether you could get it for free or not, even if you would want it if it were available for free; and if you would NOT purchase it either way, then THERE HAS BEEN NO CHANGE AT ALL as far as the comany is concerned. The company suffered the same loss from you downloading their sofware for free as it would if you simply did not get it at all. Also, some people who pirate software actually BUY it later on. For instance, I didn't even know about Uplink until I saw it on a warez site and decided to check it out. And later, I decided to support the company and buy it.

*rant over*
Phew! That was intense...
