hal2k1: "If you want to do that, you are using someone else's efforts to create a product for yourself to profit from at the expense of yet other people.

That is pure greed. You are asking for money for jam. You are asking for other people to hand you a living.

That is why doing what you suggest is morally wrong, and hence that is why it matters. ?"

Who's expense... it's given away? Just like our thoughts on this subject, in this forum. You quoted someone, included it in your post.... did doing that cost tomcat anything somehow? Are you immoral for using his ideas to help define your point? Don't call it FREE if it's not free.
