I only really say this because it was mentioned that I hadn't said anything about the piracy/illegal torrent issue and I say it here because this is offtopic from the post that was originally made.
I am not going to argue about whether piracy/illegal torrents/etc are right or wrong or if one will or will not get caught or in what conditions make it 'OK'. What you do is your choice. However, I would prefer if talk about pirated stuff or where to get it is kept to a minimum or not talked about at all. Mainly because the stuff is illegal, partially because tends to start flame wars, partially because I don't like it, and partially for the reasons Spartan had brought up in the thread.
That said, Spartan has the site's best interests at heart so please don't disregard him because I haven't said anything about the matter, no matter what it is. I know I may be the Grand Poobah of the forums, but Spartan was promoted for a reason.
Lastly, I just wanna say if you feel attacked by this post, I don't mean to be that way. I am not pointing fingers, I just want to make it clear how I would prefer things to be like in the future and to try my best at keeping our community from turning into a fighting arena. To be honest I don't even remember who made the comment that caused me to write this post and at this point I am too lazy to look it up.
Wheeeee! Dizzyingly long post!!
If you aren't sure if I allow something on the forums or need me to clear up some rules or something feel free to ask me here.
