It's not my business whether you discuss this topic on the forums; however, I felt it necessary to point out the stupidity of openly discussing illegal activities on a public forum. Not only is it against the rules on most boards, but if the government or a private party were to wish to press charges against you, posts of this nature can be used as evidence.

In the past, the FBI has logged IRC conversations and message board posts and presented them in court to convict software pirates, and while they generally only go after the larger warez groups (Razor 1911 comes to mind), I'd still strongly suggest being mindful of where you discuss subjects of this nature.

Besides, software piracy is lame. Go buy the damn program like everyone else has to.
