Just download it from the blogs, enjoy it, and then buy the album at the show or when it's available.

That's what I fully intend to do. In Cheeso's world, that's theft.

The intangible statement is also ridiculous. Do these people also sneak into movies? Do they hijack someone else's sattelite TV signal, or their internet service? Do they sneak into gigs?

And all that is a ridiculous conclusion to make. You've spent this whole thread chastising individuals for their perception and actions on a matter which is predominantly grey, but you have spent no time addressing the guilt of Broadcast and the rest of artists who are engaging in this pre-release practice. You do know that all this is is an attempt to cash in with an inferior product (yes, it is air without the balloon) while preserving the promo system, except that the promo system was not broken, and the music world failed to recognize these leaks as promotional tools: they wanted in. So they're selling an inferior product in advance of the main release. Perhaps you're just trying to justify to yourself why you needed to pay more?

k., he's not trying to justify himself. He's just upset that we are smarter and better looking than he is.
