Someone else said they prefer to rip Office2000, and they have connections.
I pointed out that connections are pointless, because rather than stealing, they could get exactly the same damned thing, for free, legally!, and it supports the open source movement.
"I have a friend who sells CDs of these items cheap (yes, each one is legal)"
I proceed with the eye-rolling some more, and they say that's called OEM. I know what OEM is. OEM is not ripping. I point this out to them.
"Nope. Only ripping I ever do is CD to MP3 at the most."
Do you rip Office2k, or don't you? Or do you get it legally? So...you're either a thief, or a liar. Possibly both. Either way, this person just fell off the 'I give a damn about you' list.
Thank you for lying, and wasting my time. *plonk*
