    I am uncertain of what you are asking. But I did not locate the string "Thoughts?" anywhere on the page.

    Ooooo, tough break for rocci boy... I think piracy should be stopped, but I can't say I'm completely innocent....

    Piracy doesn't bother me as much as the morons that do it and then brag because they downloaded a game when I actually went out and paid money for it...

    copyright law is only tolerated because the vast majority of petty offenses are unprosecuted...or something.

    I was kinda shocked at first because I didn't know mod chips were illegal. I guess I've always viewed them as being kinda like cable tv descramblers, you can buy them just cant use them. It seems like the mod chip selling is an excuse to bust him for the info that was distributed on the site, mainly what "groups" were releasing what warez and when. Whenever any major group released anything they would have that info there within hours. Kinda like how they busted Al Capone for tax evasion, an excuse to bust him for something, since they couldn't pin anything on him.

    true and i agree that piracy should be stopped but it's really hard to prosecute all the people that do it, but i dont see why the gov. cant hire people to go look for warez sites, and then just shut the sites down.
    guns dont kill people, abortion clinics kill people.

    They are legal in Australia as the consoles area restrictions prevent the consumer from buying software from any source (ie it is SO much cheaper from over the web) and so stifle competition.

    It realy annoyed Sony when the ACCC helped a pirate selling mod chips get off (he got busted for the pirate games but not the mod chips).

    In an angry response MS threatened to pull the X-Box from the shelves here just before Christmas and had to quickly retract.

    Do you feel the same way about drug laws?
