Now you're saying piracy is either burglary or embezzlement?

Do you know how to read by any chance?


I just figured they were examples, since burglary and embezzlement are not the only ways of "unlawfully taking property". Once again, piracy fits that definition.

You figured wrong, it's talking about specifically burglary or embezzlement.

And also you realize that's a law definition, right? You know that "unlawfully" is about law, right?


Only when you want to base your argument on the law definition.

Which according to you, includes all definitions of theft.


Second closest then.

Not good enough.


Sure, noticing my mistake only enforced my argument. That dictionary article is working with the law definition.


It took apart your argument.

The law part on that page was a separate encyclopedia article about the law, not part of the definition.

One more reason why that article is really bad.

I also know that piracy is unlawful. One more reason why it fits the definition.

No, only merrian webster's


Not good enough.


It is. Dictionary is as close to facts as you can ever get.

It didn't. That paragraph showed us that the dictionary is law biased.

Merriam-Webster is the most trusted dictionary for the English language, and it's not meant for defining law but the semantics of words.

You're arguing nothing but insanity now. It's time to take your medicine.

Even if we were to take it seriously, how can something be stealing but not theft? It doesn't make sense. Wonky dictionary.

The only thing wonky here is your mind. Take your meds and it will clear things up.

ad hominem

the dictionary is wonky when it contradicts itself
#377Ch3wyPosted 3/26/2014 7:50:53 AM
There's no contradiction. That's in your head.

It says piracy isn't theft but it is stealing. That's a contradiction.
#379Ch3wyPosted 3/26/2014 7:54:54 AM
It doesn't even mention piracy. That's also in your head.

The dictionary doesn't need to explicitly mention piracy. Piracy fits the definition of stealing but doesn't fit its definition of theft.

That's only if we don't take into account that the dictionary is biased though. Either way that dictionary has issues.
