When I see people complain about humble bundles, I see why piracy is rampant.

It's about controlling the consumer and controlling the rights over other businesses. Piracy is a red herring, something easy to play up because it resonates the most with their chosen narrative to the sheep.

Quality is generally **** if you rip it off youtube. You have a choice between a lossless file with lossy compressed quality, or a lossy compressed file that has been compressed twice. And that's assuming that they didn't use a lossy compressed file when they uploaded it.
Every time you point out that something is an opinion Jesus shoots a kitten in the face.

Uh yeah....no....do you honestly think they'd go to the trouble/expense to license/create these DRM toolkits and platforms if it were just a matter of "controlling the consumer", if piracy were somehow non-existent and all those people pirating were just "demoers" who then go and buy a proper license (LOL!). Piracy is not a "red herring", IT IS THE ISSUE, lol, and anyone with half a brain can deduce that.

This is why poor people should be rejected from hospitals for being too poor.
This is a touchy subject. Also, illegals get free emergency healthcare in most states.

I've literally never heard anyone complain about the humble bundle.
This. The closest to a complaint I've ever heard is "Stupid paypal won't go through!"

Haha if you're complaining about piracy you don't live in the real world, nobody plays by the rules.
You're delusional if you think that they spend more than 5 min on their DRM that gets cracked the same day it's released.
They have never ever found a way to stop piracy and they never will and they know it. The only concern they had with piracy was at the very beginning when they thought it would collapse their sales. Since then, everyone with half a brain knows that piracy actually increases sales. It's been shown a thousand times.
They use it as a pretext to control sheep like you which obviously works wonders. Look how hard you fight and how angry you get about something that doesn't affect you in the slightest. You are a sheep if ever I saw one.
Shooting blanks, every time, all the time.
I think it's more about expectations. I've seem people expecting extra games to show up later because that's normally how the humble bundles are handled. We've seen the EA bundle with some great games. We've seen the THQ bundle with some great games. So when we see a humble bundle that has some boring games, or one that doesn't add later, we're disappointed. They rose the bar for themselves. If they don't match their own level of quality, people start questioning what's up.
Don't lie to someone who trusts you.
Don't trust someone who lies to you.
So do people just interchange "want" and "entitled" when they want to be condescending?
