I'm sorry. Are you privy to information the rest of us don't know
about? I wasn't aware that the person (or persons...) [dramatic pause]
involved were doing anything more than retrieving software from illegal
sites, primarily for their own use. Perhaps you would like to bare your
breast about this a bit more. Confess! Confess! We *know* you are in league
with the Devil, or else how does your name come to be an anagram of
'Joseph Haircut', and not only that but also 'Jesuit hop char' and
'Sap Jericho hut' - first you are as Delilah to Sampson for the husband of
Our Lady the Holy Mary, but also you seek to cast scorn upon the most Holy
order of the Jesuits, as well as to revile the Sacred memory of Jericho.

I think you should go out into the real world and commit a few
crimes. It might do wonders for your sense of perspective.
Does everyone think it's time I started using irony indicators again?
Are these people American? (For those of you who are taking every word I
write as evidence of what I believe, I suggest you find out about literary
devices before replying.) The real point of my last post is that some people
are too quick to point the finger, and overreact. A bit more diplomacy might
be in order.
