NO, I am saying that if you choose to pay for your software, you are not a
stupid or bad person, as some in this thread would have you believe.
For some reason or another, many users have decided that so-called "free"
software is more to be desired than software you pay for. This is why so
many millions of people use P2P networks to download "free" software. I
submit that the REAL reason they download so-called "free" software is
because they are GREEDY.
