The murder of insects is generally accepted and even encouraged. The murder of furry animals is generally discouraged. The murder of humans is generally forbidden unless it's to protect yourself or someone else.

Hey you can't ding my gunpoint thing when you're using crap like that. That's just no fair.

No I was being serious, we should just take everything at gunpoint and call it piracy. It seems to work for PC games and I am a fan of free stuff.

If you dislike a pirated game and delete it, the developers are not rewarded for crappy work and you save yourself from making an uninformed purchase.

EXACTLY MAN! We are on the same wavelength finally. We should be able to eat at a restaurant and then complain about the food and leave without paying. I am liking this piracy stuff. All I have to do is find a reason to dislike something then it's mine and I pay nothing! What else can we do this with? The sky is the limit.
