I'm sure the kid who is pirating the overpriced Adobe Photoshop is involved in terrorism. Give me a break, its time these guys and ladies act their real age and instead of their shoe size, grow some common sense!

icye, I think you're misunderstanding, the pirates that are being talked about are not your average kids with a DSL line and a torrent-client. They're talking about organized gangs selling bootlegged CDs and DVDs on the streets in African and and Asian countries, and money from that does go towards funding terrorism.Of course the people buying these aren't terrorists, but they are unwittingly funding it.The discussion on page is rather interesting, and I like this quote:[QUOTE]No. Truly good people are good because they have a set of ethics. No need to create imaginary beings, places, and punishements just to make ourselves behave. Thats ******* repugnant."[/QUOTE]
