It's ironic that you are saying it's an "idiotic argument to make" when you are using the smallest slice of anecdotal evidence (yourself) to extrapolate that everyone else must do things exactly the same. Unless you follow every single pirate's habits and spy on everything each one does, the only BS argument here is yours, since you are just pulling shit out of your ass. Sorry.
Christ mate, you come down in the last shower or something?
Have a look around. Get a feel for how people treat each other in this day and age. Maybe society is just different in your neck of the woods or something, but these days all I ever see are people putting themselves ahead of what would be the right thing to do. All day, every day.
There's no way on this Earth anywhere near a sizeable percentage of pirates will actually buy something that they've already downloaded. Sorry, no. Not a chance. End of story. If buying it would unlock content they don't have access to playing the pirated version, then maybe, but that's not based on some sort of moral code.
Dmitri nailed it. It's bullshit, and anyone who thinks otherwise really needs to open their eyes.
