    Irony, I hope. There is no justifiable reason to steal. (Caveat- if you are starving, stealing food to survive. But then, why are you starving.? Good reason or just lazy?)

    I come to your house and steal your game system because I don't have one- no.

    I steal your car because... same. No.

    I make a product and try to sell it. You steal it because you don't want to pay for it. No.

    Stealing is stealing. Period. Nintendo OWNS Mario. Deal with it. If you want Mario, buy it. If it is not available for your phone, deal with it. Warez is stealing. Admit you are a thief and want something for nothing.

    As to ROMS, under U.S. Copyright law (though under attack by Clinton's revision of digital media laws, which is contested), you have the right to make one backup of your purchased media under Fair Use- as a backup. While producers make this more and more difficult, it is a recognized part of the law. But any other distribution of, or ownership of, media not made by you for that specific purpose is illegal.

    Morality is within you. You choose how you behave and how you deal with your actions.

    But I bet your moms taught ALL of you little thieves that stealing is bad. You are just choosing to ignore her.
    I'm not a pirate, I've caused a few flame wars ******** at the pirates here. All I was saying is that all the pirates that I have argued with here feel they have some "justifiable" reason to steal when there isn't any reason to.

    Please don't quote paragraphs of writing to write two sentences. You can simply write your response...

    Easy...Apple knew it would sell fast and they would make a ton of money on their 30% cut. When it got big, they pulled it and claimed to have no idea how it got through all the while they laugh on the way to the bank.

    My only point is that stealing is stealing. If something is out of print, that's putting things in a different light, though some corporation somewhere owns the rights to it. Again, you are responsible for your own morality (and your own responses to your actions). I'm not pointing fingers, just pointing out facts.

    Every forum has rules: to keep the forum legal; to keep the natives in line; to protect domestic tranquility. There are things you can say and things you can't. Free speech is not absolute. There are many legitimate limits on it (and many more illegitimate ones put in place by the government as well).

    And it's never a good thing to tell the absolute ruler you can do what you want. HE can, YOU can't.

    A co-worker of mine got it. It LAGS, and it is a complete waste of time. It's very difficult to control.
