@chose: If your chosen hobby isn't worth paying money for when it's all about things that others have labored to create, why the hell do you bother with it? Corporate greed or no, there are average every day people making games. You are fooling yourself if you think that pirating sticks it to the man more than it does the people making your beloved interactive media. Guess who gets fired when a game doesn't sell well enough regardless of how good it is? It's not the white collar guys, that's for goddamn sure. Stop being an idiot.
@erel: Piracy isn't theft of physical property, but intellectual property. That's besides the point however, the argument he presents is that if it's in a form that is easily copied he will continue to copy it without paying the creator(s). Basically, "if you don't want me to steal your shit, stop releasing it." It's incredibly stupid.
Wounds are something that heal with time, the crew not jumping at a chance to talk about him is normal. I still get really, really sad when I hear him on old quicklooks and I never had the chance to meet him. I can't imagine what they're going through still. Give it more time.
