DRM Thread in Computer and Console Posted April 18, 2009 I know this because when I was younger, I did my share of pirating. I look back on that time with a ton of regret. Not only was I selfishly damaging the industry that I wanted to thrive, but I was trading short term enjoyment at the cost of my long term happiness. It was stupid. I was a hardcore pirate too. Heh, you guys remind me of former smokers! Like piracy, smoking is a bad thing and smokers who quit are often the most vehement anti-smoking crusaders, whereas non-smokers tend to be less agitated about others smoking.
