Of course, when I sin against the big guy I hired, instead of being doomed to hell I get hit with a stick, but that's a small price to pay for intellectual liberation!" — OKCupid user "Valatiel" in response to

"Online file-sharing, however, affects very important people in very serious and quantifiable ways. By 'very important people,' of course, I mean 'the people who get rich arbitrarily from someone else's hard work,' and by 'very serious and quantifiable ways,' I mean that 'said rich people are convinced they're not getting quite as much richer as they believe they're entitled, by an indeterminate factor through unsubstantiated means.'
