Again, all your emphatic statements and passionate dissertations don't change the fact that you have no idea if what you say is even close to true. You are projecting your personal image of the modern day software pirate as if it were somehow irrefutable reality. Sorry, but because there's no way of knowing each and every pirate's habits, it's not.
I just for the life of me can't understand how someone can demand that everyone accept their personal interpretation (something shaped by their own experiences) of something, while having no more evidence than anyone else, and often less, as truth. Saying "Sorry, no. Not a chance. End of story. BLAH BLAH BLAH" doesn't really convince someone of anything, regardless of how passionately YOU believe it.
Because you can't provide real evidence (due to the simple fact that it is unobtainable), all you can do is what I'm doing - offering an opinion. Just understand I'm not making excuses for what pirates do; I'm simply explaining why I throw up in my mouth a bit when people start throwing percentages around when they are based on little or no hard evidence.This comment was edited on Nov 26, 2011, 17:47.
