However, have you actually considered it from the other side? Somebody needs to pay for hosting, and generate the original content that you're consuming.

It's a hallmark of this entitlement generation that gosh, I want something, so I should have it, and for free!!!

Or maybe somebody doesn't need to pay for hosting.

Think about how hard searching the web is now, because you have to fight through 20 of the same content re-posted on 20 different websites, because they all want the ad revenue; the domain parking sites; the keyword spam pages; etc. Do we really need someone to be paying for those?

Maybe if no one finds your "original content" worth paying for, including yourself, that's saying something. ;)
