    That nonsense of sharing those Magpul DVDs in here is embarrassing. I really expect better from the posters in this forum and that was pretty damn disappointing. Please don't do that in the future.

    I'm not going to try to justify it but very few if any of the people who downloaded it would actually purchase the DVD if it weren't available for free. All the music I listen to is downloaded and if there weren't a way to get it for free I'd just listen to the radio or not at all.

    I get it though you're a mod.

    "if I weren't a mod I'd have openly talked about downloading it as well, but since I'm a mod fuck you all and your immoral activities."

    I would care more if like, shacklemenot wrote this but the fact that Emfuser wrote it makes me want to go out and DL it now, since I haven't yet

    if it were priced like a normal dvd i'd be interested in buying it. Like most "training DVD's" it's priced unreasonably high.

    I think you need to look up the definition of stealing again.

    I'd buy it if I could watch it first. That's what we always do. Downloaded the 720 version of That's It, That's All (snowboarding film) and I went out the next day and purchased it. :dunno:

    The files for this DVD (Magpul Dynamics) are all over the place out there anyways. I don't see how deleting that thread and being all holier than thou is really necessary. How about all the porn in the main forum? maybe you should go have all those deleted too. those are "stolen"

    Actually I do not download movies or music. I haven't done any of that for several years when I realized that every single excuse for doing so is rationalizing stealing.

    I always have to assume that the legitimate try before you buy crowd is a minority. I don't have an issue with that idea, but the second one condones and allows it, then everyone is suddenly "oh, I'm just DL'ing it to see what I'm getting :hsughno:" when you know nearly all of them are full of shit.

    I hope you don't ever look at NWS threads or download hosted porn since that is all copyrighted material and if you're not paying for it you're stealing it.

    Don't tell me that you, of all people, are going to rest your laurels on the (now old and defeated) argument that taking copies of intellectual property/media isn't actually stealing? Seriously?

    You're smarter than that, brotato.
