If someone would stoop so low as to pirate software from developers, I can't imagine what else they would do.

I think torrents are a gateway to crime. One day you are pirating games, the next day you're out stealing a car that you couldn't download.

A friend of mine used to pirate music.

Last I saw him he had recently recovered from a heroin addiction.

No not in the slightest. It takes a messed up brain and mind state to do real crimes. Downloading games is something people do because they don't wanna spend any money on games if they don't have to

One day it's software piracy.

Next it's napalming civilians in a civil war.

It's a slippery slope.

What do you mean more serious crimes? Piracy is already worse than genocide, murdering babies and devil worship. How worse can it be?

Stealing games is a felony. It's just like robbing the elderly.

And murder.

Yes. I started by simply downloading A Link to the Past. Now Im a world wide illegal arms dealer and drug distributor. I also occasionally dabble in sex trafficking, kidnapping, assassination, and extortion as well.

If only I hadnt pirated that first game...
