You're being a hypocrite, you have traded before, I'm quite sure.



I have no problem admitting it, either. Unlike other people here. And I've never ripped off Martin, Stereolab, or Broadcast. People who I've met and respect and admire.


So it's okay to "rip off" people you don't know personally. You sound like the Republican party.

I guess no one here has ever recorded a record on a cassette tape, or made a CD-R of a CD, and then given it to someone.


Theft is theft. Accept this and move on.


Okay, thief.


What would Jesus do, would he steal, too?

No, no he wouldn't.

Re: Stop begging for copies of the Broadcast EP

Well, Cheese, I am very serious about this. I spend thousands of dollars a year on music and do not intend to deprive Broadcast or Stereolab of the money that they deserve for their product. Your argument that I am "stealing" is about as binary as it gets, and completely absurd. I take it that you are a strict believer in digital rights who pays for every single download he does. You are trying to reduce this situation to black and white, when you know and likely practice the grey areas of this debate.

Since when is that a condition or a requirement of purchasing an album? If you don't like mp3, then just wait for the hard copy and quit your bitching.


I'm not bitching. You are. You probably unconsciously resent that you shelled out for a lousy quality mp3. You're so weak willed, aren't you? You love paying twice for the same thing.

No, I've already admitted I operate in the grey area myself. However, how I operate is beside the point.

I'm not the one trying to make the argument that the MP3s are not officially released or comparing the purchase of this release to the purchase of air.

I am merely stating facts: the band and the label have officially released this download. If you want it, you must pay for it. If you obtain it otherwise, it is theft.

End of story.

Jesus would separate the wheat from the chaff (the vinyl from the mp3). He would march right into iTunes and overturn the CEO's desk and say "You've ruined the music industry!"

Oh, and he would look at you and say "Let him who has never downloaded from the Internet without paying cast the first stone."

You're just being hypocritical and inflammatory for no reason. Your argument is "it's okay to rip people off if you don't know them." Steal an Aerosmith mp3 = ok. Steal a Broadcast mp3 = not okay.

Your argument is total bullshit.

Oh yeah, you're begging for something illegal...very becoming for a man of the cloth.

And I am actually very happy that I paid for the MP3s, I've been listening to it nonstop. I will be very happy to pay for the hard copy when it comes out. I will probably buy on vinyl and CD.

Jesus defended David for stealing bread from the temple. Jesus picked wheat on the Sabbath, which was against the law. Jesus forgave sins when the church considered it blasphemy. Again, your argument is lame.
