This blog constantly praises musicians (and all content creators) when they get things right and offer their work in a way that doesn't attack, vilify, discourage, or inconvenience fans of that work, as it considers such actions bad for business and bad for the arts in general.
First step... turn off the local news. It's pure fear mongering and it doesn't serve your community. If you want to know what's really going on in your city, then get out of your house. The news thrives on making you afraid to leave your home (and sometimes, even afraid to stay in your home).
I'm not surprised. Techdirt is full of trolls simply because Techdirt acknowledge piracy exists, and they consider it a rousing endorsement. They thoroughly believe the only reason this website exists is to promote piracy. The fact that mainstream news doesn't mention piracy only reinforces this idea.
