    No offence taken. I'm proud to be one.

    Although, I prefer the term "Geek" myself.... ;)

    I think thats a little rash, you think companies trying to enforce copyright protection even with the backing of a government such as the US is going to cause enough of a disturbance for ordinary citizens to form militaries and go to war with governments or something?
    I don't know... to think something as simple as RIAA suing Kazaa users, or this TCPA thing (which isnt' quite as simple) is going to cause something such as a war, even if its not on a World War scale is a bit exaggerated I think.

    No need to thank me when you go...

    "Hey, OMFG, that guy... yeah XtR-X or whatever said that this would happen! Ahhhhhh!" ;)

    Yes, actually, think about, well of people, who would never harm a fly and yet download music get imprisoned. What's the world to see or think? "Imprisonment for innocent people that download music? Let's fight them! This will not go on!"

    Can I remind you all of the example of the Halocaust? Looks like were Germany now, no offense to any Germans or Germany, it's a wonderful place and I've been there, half my family is from there. No, I'm not being racist-- before you jump to conclusions.

    Just imagine. I'm a good kid myself. I'd never hurt a fly unless it hurt me... for say. The only thing I do is I download tons of files yeah well you know what kind and I like to speed like 40mph over the speed limit in my b-e-a-u-t-iful car. :)

    Ok, that paragraph above was a little happy, lets jump to serious mode. Think about it!

    What's the world to come to when people innocent in real life are imprisoned?

    Like I've said in my other topic about the TCPA, I will be apart of the riot/war/uprising if the time were to come.

    XTR its just simply not going to be that big of a problem, everyone is getting stirred up, eventually the politicians will see what the general public sees. If you don't think so then ask yourself if you have ever wrote to your state representative. If people would just quit bitching about how things are turning out and actually send a friendly letter to their state representatives then I think they'd listen, we are the ones putting them in office and paying their salary.
    Rioting involves distroying property and injuring people, do you really want to be involved in a riot later (which is ignorant in itself for lots of reasons) when you can do something now to try to prevent it. So many people complain after something has happened, which they could have had a say in to make it not happen.

    Now you are both just being silly.

    I feel annoyed about this to, but lets confine our discussions to reality, please.

    You guys, this is very real. Even more real than programming.

    You guys are being ignorant (at all respects) because there hasn't been a war or anything for a LONG TIME.

    ummm

    First off how in "all respects" am I being ignorant here. And about this war thing not having happened in a "LONG TIME", did you sleep through Gulf War Part 2? The soldiers over there fighting and dying would probably think different.

    Didn't we just have a war in Iraq? Actually that is what SNGX is referring to.

    Pardon me, more of a civil war or uprising.

    Thanks to both "acid" and "Phant" for your comments. I stand, duly chastised :eek:

    Copyright infringement is against the law. So is theft. I do neither.
    Now where can I download a copy of the Della Reese album, "Classic Della" ...

    Mindbending

    No problemo. Just watch, I'm about to remove at least 1/3rd of my verbose and lengthy response. And be done with this line of dialogue forever. :)
