Fags who pirate games are underage and should be banned, or worse they are pathetic manchildren. Possible justifications for piracy:

>I can't afford it, so they're not losing business
No job, thus no money, underage manchild

>Why pay for something I can easily get for free
No job, thus no appreciation for the value of other's labor, underage or manchild

>It's not stealing, they still have the original! What exactly did I steal?
No job, thus doesn't understand that you steal from other's livelihood and their chances of remaining employed, underage or manchild

Never download unless the person has a skull. Yesterday actually I went on and saw the same guy had the top listing for every piece of mainstream software with like 20k seeds in a few hours. No comments no skull. Obviously fake and I wonder how many people were fucked over by whatever that software actually was.

That's a shit comic though. Physical goods are different, and if one had the ability to clone physical goods the vendors would not lose a single cent over it and they still would be able to make the sale since they still have the good.
