Agreed! People get their panties in a wad over stuff that doesn't matter. Sadly, that's what makes trolling so much fun. Watching someone you don't know get all huffy about a few semi-anonymously typed words on the internet is actually kind of funny.
From Half Baked: Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you, you're cool, and fuck you, I'm out!
Oh no! Someone made a joke on the internet! Let me see how much of a wad I can get my panties in!
Dude, I don't care what kind of music you're a fan of, or if you think all of The Beib's music is gold and Sinatra is absolute crap (no accounting for taste...I hate The Beatles). I was bringing funny supporting documentation to his gross generalization. Go put on your big girl panties and let others have their humor.
If you can't do that, then maybe you should take a look at your life and see where you went wrong.
I'm in the same boat as you, except I actually go steal money from people in the music industry (local bands, A&R folks, execs, the blind dude on the corner playing guitar...whoever I can find connected with music) and burn that when I pirate.
Dude, take the tongue in cheek joke for what it was. The same reason I said we shoot people for sport. It was funny to me. If you disagree, that's fine, and I'll fight for your right to say so. But c'mon, really? I'm not going to go murdering senators and claiming that it's cool under the law because I felt like they were a threat to my property. Hell, I'm sure someone would have found that loophole and started shooting officials a LONG time ago if it actually existed.
other than exceptions such as self defense which wouldn't fly
Why not? I was defending myself against an imminent threat.I consider the US Government an imminent threat against my person and my property (I live in Texas, we allow deadly force in defense of property).
Pfft, the US Government has been in industry pockets since before there was a US. It was pre-ordained by God himself on a document written in the blood of non-believing serfs in a book bound with the skin of several baby seals.
