Thanks for all the words of encouragement y'all
I'll say I do get frustrated but try to not let it bother me.
I'll still do what I do regardless.
Sk3tch thanks for the post dude and the icon psd's
And I wasn't only really referring to my packages, some big name themers you all know and respect I've had the I guess the unfortunate opportunity to see total legit sales (numbers and dollars) vs just a small portion of the pirated downloads. It's ridiculous when you look at it. And it's only getting worse
As Jima6636 said to me the other day these guys don't even give a chance to a creator to make a few bucks. A year or so ago, maybe more now you'd see your stuff pirated after a week or maybe two after it was released.
My last three packages were done in under two hours of release. Its inevitable in this day and age that it will be pirated but even the pirates should give a chance for creators to get a little something back.
On a happier note -> My sincere THANKS to everyone for your donations/purchases!
Appreciated more than you know

You're probably a great guy, Azjonnyg. But on this topic I just can't give you an 'inch' because you'll (and others that think the way you do) take that mile and try to find ways of justifying it to yourself... greedy record companies, blah, blah, blah.. It's all just nonsense to try and make you feel less guilty about the stealing. There's a 'Robin Hood' mentality in the younger generations too. I feel the same way about unlocking in-contract phones - but that's been debated to death in other threads... Won't go there here..
Bottom line. Downloading pirated music is stealing. There's just no argument that can make it be something else. It is, IN FACT, 'stealing'. Now you can justify it all you want and we can agree or agree to disagree on your 'justification'. But don't CHANGE the terminology to make yourself feel better. Don't say it's not stealing - when it clearly is. Go ahead and say... "MY STEALING IS JUSTIFIED by x, y, x...."... But don't call it something it's not. That's all I'm asking. Well - I'm also asking you NOT to do it.. Go out - get off your butt playing games on your computer all day -- get an extra job - and download from iTunes and other reputable sources that pay the artists for their creation. It's NOT hard.Here to help if I can. If I can't I know someone who can!

The artists have enough money so ill gladly steal there music. If they stop bragging about the fact they have all they have then 10 mins later try and tell me how hard they have it ill reconsider my stance on it.
What's wrong with Robin Hood mentality, maybe of more people were sensitive to others situations that mentality would disappear.
Also stop blaming kids until you can back it up. Biggest pirates out there are 25+. Ill produce my facts when you do yours.

@NewdestinyX it takes a big man to admit he's a thief. I respect you for that.As long as there's hate in your heart, there'll be hate in the world. You can't fight for peace and you cannot capture freedom.

well you can blame each other, i pay the creator most of all because i know the time they spend to get all the bitchy people happy, the people that cant create anything on their own, but always demand new stuff, better stuff, personal stuff, and so on, i dont have much money on my own these days, but i always support the creator's

My character is fine thank you. Who's coming with the personal attacks now.
I buy a lot of music but also pirate a lot.
I pay for everything jb related cause devs themers modders don't sit and brag about how much $ they got. It's needed.
If they want to try and fool me into thinking they are hard up they should prob give up throwing it in our faces.
I'm by no means jealous, good luck to them. Just don't treat me like a fool and expect me to respect them enough to give them more of it.

As to "personal attacking". I don't do it. I only ever speak about "actions and behaviors" of people. Not "them AS" people. People do many things out of ignorance - which doesn't make them bad people - but their actions can be addressed and judged for what they are.
I'll admit using the word "character" speaks to a person as "they are". I will withdraw that statement Gunny.. It is likely over the line. Edited my other post.

Asking a question I've already answered lol
You called me a thief because of the facts you have gathered from my posts I won't deny it I know it's stealing but not the same as if I walked into my local shop filled my pockets and walked out without paying, which I wouldn't do. I can live with that label with no guilty conscience at all.
Yet when I've called you ignorant, misinformed etc etc in past conversations due to the facts I gathered from your posts you call it a personal attack. Double standards?

I'll be honest. How can you really consider obtaining music stealing. I may be older, but don't they play all that stuff for free on the radio?
So I can record all I want from the airwaves, but if I download it, then I'm stealing?!?!
That's just whacked!

I apologize for this being off topic, but this cross-word clue is driving me nuts. The clue is "exaggerated dignity; pretentious" the word is. _om_ _ _ s
Anyone have a clue what it could be?As long as there's hate in your heart, there'll be hate in the world. You can't fight for peace and you cannot capture freedom.
11-13-2013, 06:32 PM #1757
So, no, it's not a double standard. They're two entirely different situations one requiring a burden of proof and the other simply discernible by reading someone's account of their regular actions.
