It's illegal and certainly immoral to some degree.

But honestly, if I couldn't torrent the content that I pirate I would still not buy it. So at least in my case there's no actual harm done.

I try to keep torrenting to a minimum. But I think more people are guilty of doing it than would be willing to confess. Kinda like porn.

The kinds of things people most often torrent mostly don't interest me or can be got another way, perhaps not pirated. I'd be too worried about malware/getting caught. That is if the torrent will even start. I've tried before though only for obscure old magazines or something.

I naturally buy the music i like, Iron Maiden, hell even Metallica, that started the whole chase with napster...

Movies should come out faster on DVD or online paysites. I didn't buy this "home theater system" to watch movies in the theatre!

I think it is ironic because torrenting is the literal embodiment of...

1. Collectivism

2. From each according to his ability, to each according to his need

3. Charity

4. Makes sure that people are not deprived of entertainment, information and knowledge simply for lack of the means to pay for them.

And liberal Hollywood despises it

It's great!
I am in favor of stealing.
Not even sarcasm.

The phrase " No one is entitled to anything" is stupid and boring. I prefer the phrase "Everyone is entitled to everything". **** just makes more sense. How about we maximize pleasure, and minimize you being offended or angry, your judgement, and just your **** vibes in general? You only get one life, and literally everything we do is so insignificant anyways. Let's just have a good time.

Worrying about lost money is in itself greed.
The person being "stolen" from isn't losing anything.
And the immorality of it is irrelevant anyways.

edit: Just noticed this thread has to do with torrenting and not pirating. There is a difference.

The only bad thing I see about my torrenting habits is that yeah, I'm that user who deletes the torrent without seeding or leaving a rating/review after it's done downloading, and it makes me feel like a douche when I do that. Especially when the torrent works perfectly, lol
