I don't care who wins anything. Magic contest are rarely more than masturbation. I don't like Shawn's act. That's all. Lots of people don't. You clearly love him, that is fine. Let's move on.

Where did I naively suggest that, love?

Well you publicly post about breaking the law or encouraging people to break the law if you want.
I prefer to point out it's illegal.
Do you also trade pirated DVDs? Or do you pick and chose which laws you break?

Downloading torrents or other methods of piracy is not Fair Use. It's stealing someone else's content. Unarguable fact.

They are stealing from the copyright holder, Objective. And no, I won't point out that any money they planned to make from DVD sales of the show are now gone because you are encouraging people to steal their content. Did you also pirate the latest UK tv show to go to US DVD they released The Secret World of Magic?
Don't you feel bad about stealing other people's work?
It astounds me that you not only admit to stealing magic content, but you are mocking me for standing up for copyright law. In public.

Some "community" we have where folk are lambasted for trying to protect someone's income.
