ok, knuckle head, oh that's not what you meant right? lol
[ame=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warez]Warez - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia[/ame]
the word warez is intended as a plural of "ware", short for computer software. Thus it is intended to be pronounced like the word wares, /ˈwɛərz/, but people commonly pronounced the e, /ˈwɑrɛz/, as in the English pronunciation of Juárez.

dont worry i didnt know what it was either
Warez" refers primarily to copyrighted works traded in violation of copyright law. The term generally refers to illegal releases by organized groups, as opposed to file sharing between friends or large groups of people with similar interest using a darknet. It usually does not refer to commercial for-profit software counterfeiting. This term was initially coined by members of the various computer underground circles, but has since become commonplace among Internet users and the mass media.

Good ol warez. Takes me back when that was the most common word for "sharing" lol. Then out of nowhere CATwatch would come in and bust the room up. See if anyone knows that refference.
Wait: shouldn't we be saying no talk about pirated/cracked/warez?
