See, this is your problem. You assume that just because you agree with something everyone else agrees with, you are joining a "bandwagon". It seems you have the urge to be the contrarian "voice of reason" all the time, but that doesn't work if the majority-opinion you oppose happens to be right.
Wrong. It isn't that I dislike to agree with the majority, it's that I don't care for how the mob behaves. The whole yell and be angry at someone/something where every little thing invokes shouts of mortal kombat and overblown cynicism is too much for me. Just pointing out his behavior is obnoxious I am more afraid of joining in the tribal dance where we beat him with sticks than the actual point being made. He's irksome, and he does try our patience, but, I don't feel he deserves the level of anger he receives yet (a keyword now, mind you). Plus all you do when you talk aggressively to a newbie trying to assimilate is make them more prone to be an aggressive asshat because they think that is the norm.
Normally my disagreements aren't with the general idea, but, the execution and level of dialog. Like bronies for example. Completely agree they are annoying, take a cartoon way too fucking seriously, and are somewhat of a nuisance. Labeling them as all people who masturbate to pony porn though... can't really go with that... Ya dig? I am all for lambasting the hell out of something that deserves it, just, not everything needs to be played up as the new forum Satan.
My question is this: If you don't buy the game, in what way are you sending a message that you don't like DRM? All the companies can see is plummeting sales. If they are dense enough to implement DRM in the first place, do you really think they'll have a thought beyond "Well, guess this game/series is not popular anymore, we'll stop making it!"
So it is better to steal?
At best this is a lame trolling attempt out of spite and hypocrisy, but not a parody.
Wha? Are we talking about Zone? or my post? If the former, defining an art is pretty difficult, making legal decisions on art gets more convoluted, and when rulings have been relatively inconsistent for over half a century I'd forgive Dean for being wrong. If the latter you totally got me bro. Good detective work.
