General Software Discussion / Re: Most Pirated Software?

Good man, I am not the one to judge how well posts fit polices but you have my thumbs up :) A bit difference between stating the uncomfortably obvious and insisting on being right though. Would be a silly debate having me claiming DC is fully aware of piracy on personal levels and DC representatives going NOOOO!, don't you think? Anyway, this is more or less a private forum with rules to follow as not to step on any toes. Rude not to. Lesson learned.

May be you should consider keeping personal stuff in the irc room or where it is you personalize. I am happily unaware, not interested in relating to person to person chitchat with unknown and irrelevant references on a public/general forum - see no fun in guessing what is acceptable to say or not to say.

If you have a need for a strickly DC-personal forum ask for one. You might get to be moderator, defend wise posts not annoying anyone you know personally. Jump in and make sure the others are regulated to your satisfaction.

@tomos - typical story, not used with joy but not out of the question either. If you get an Office Pro via work priced as 2 packs of cigarettes will you pay full price in retail? What do you tell your friends if they don't know already? Free market my butt but how it is with many things. Develpers are not more stupid than average. A 14 year old family member recently asked me for Office 2010 because her school required it. I don't think MS should increase sales because of stupid market forces and schools so she got it from msdn. MS don't care since she will now be trained in Office and not the annoying alternatives. Another one in the basket and she can be used later. Have to be an complete idiot defending this setup with great conviction. MS not the same as small developers but complex and messed up it is. Guess I am distributor of pirated software as well but ok.

I know you are a linux dude zridling and that there are some who stand by their words and conviction. I think I did mention exceptions a few times.

@40mhz, I am sure you would like to regulate ;) Can always tell... Apply for a moderator job if desire sticks. Piracy is typically an invitation for eager moderator wannabies people to react, old, weak and basically BS though there are people like zridling around who can ask WFT are you talking about?, standing up for ones word is a admirable feature - most fail and come off as hypocritical if they try, I estimate 95% hitrate when topic is piracy including every member on this domain :) Probably not "wise" to say either with so sensitive a bunch of people around. Virtual sensitivity rocks!

Great, then DC is not special and has same loose relationship to piracy as world outside DC. That has been my point all along :) I find it difficult to make sense of any other point of view.

I know what you meant unless irc has nothing to do with dc irc. Question is what is limiting though. I look left and right for input, have no focus or personal considerations to wonder about. Don't really care what a handful of people in irc room agree on, together. But no reason to worry about too much unwanted piracy talk, no need to jump on a high horse - very few will post about this for the reasons I have mentioned, main one being most do it them self. Anyone can claim whatever, including the opposite that DC is in fact totally free of piracy, here poor developer only suffer. Like a slaughterhouse, very rude to bring it up! I am convinced no special DC morale exist other than that of self interest, like the rest of the world follows - you think DC, all 200000+ members, is isolated and pure. We disagree.

I am sorry to limit you to general chitchat on the public forums...
