  1. Saw this happening and wondering what you guys (objectivists) think of it. I consider myself most closely aligned with objectivism, but not to a "T". Here's the link: http://www.techdirt.com/articles/20070304/223155.shtml Here's the story: [Edit: This is where the poster quoted the entire article. Yikes.]
  2. Remember. Contradictions do not exist. Check your premises and you'll find one of them to be false. Perhaps your notion of a "good girl" isn't what you REALLY want. Look at what you DO find yourself attrcted to and understand it... question it...
  3. You know. You're quick to call me immoral, but most of the music I download is from artists who're fine with it. Artists that make a big stink of it I don't so much as listen to or download, because I don't want to have anything to do with them. You won't find any metallica on my computer for this reason.
  4. No, but its similar. Warpathing is driving around in a van with a wifi laptop using others' bandwidth to connect online. It also makes tracing dirty impossible. Thus, the advantage to doing so for hackers and ne'er do wells.
  5. That's why I'm not an objectivist. Because I'm an anarchist. Most all of my other beliefs go along with objectivism, however. Most, not all. In fact its on the border for me to say some, but not enough to change what I said.
  6. Hardly. Reread my original post if you don't understand what I said. I stated it clearly. Indeed. It takes nothing to use a script. And script kiddies do abound. I meant creating a crack, hack or backdoor, on the ground level.
  7. Ah, so if someone threatens to kill your family, such as a mob unless you do hits for him (kill other people), there's nothing wrong with that situation? You must do your duty? like I said... what about indie stations? No, I wasn't.
  8. Yes it is. Humility is the restraint of being arrogant.
  9. Ah, I see. And because you're forced to you're no longer to do what's good and right, yes? I did. Its not. Its just inflated so all the middle man can mooch off the original, simple skill. No, I'm advocating something that's not worth that much not being paid for for exorbitant rates. They're not unfair to some, they're bogus to me though. Before I pirated I just listened to radio. It'd still be the same if the technology had not changed. If anything, I've actually bought a good deal legitimate cds since I downloaded some and got the desire to listen to specific music. Had I bought everything legit I probobly would have next to no cds and still be listening to solely the radio.. On this topic... I specifically DO NOT redistribute to make money. I think that's wrong if that makes any difference. Also, what about internet radio stations? Independant ones? Aren't they using the songs again without permission buying the cd grants? I could be wrong at this one, I'm just curious as the thought came to mind.
  10. I thought like you did before I saw some very noble people being humble in certian aspects. Humility IS MOST OFTEN done for the wrong reasons, but it isn't corrupt by nature, more by use.
  11. I don't get irritated at people individually unless its really bad and there's no reason for it. It just irritates me from time to time upon reflection that I can't talk the way I enjoy. Heh. I'm in sandusky. There's precious little worthwhile people here. Mostly its for the latter reason that I have trouble, but I do like talking for the former reason, but that's a luxury I can't even imagine having such problems with the latter reason.
  12. Most corporate networks are closed. I'm talking about the free hot spot networks that allow you to use them freely.
  13. Have you ever created a hack or virus of any kind, compared to your normal programming?
  14. You miss the discrimination. I will never steal from a store. Did you not understand that part of it? I will not take stock out of a store I enter. I steal virtual copies. Xeroxes. You know, what libraries illegally allow you to do to books? Okay. And this is unacceptable? My transgression is worse than the prices in that industry? Fine. Do you pay taxes? Let's see if you're a hypocrite.
  15. Only if you don't sell what you made out of the cd for money. That's not the kind of liscense a cd grants you.
