You guys may want to take a look at this conversation, the last few posts in particular. We have here one of those candidates who feel that copying and pirating digital files is not at all illegal because it is "only" a file... not harm done. I had to bow out of this conversation because my blood is boiling.

Thanks for the heads-up, Guido. Did you flag the conversation? GoodReads' policy is to frown on illegal activity and the moderators and librarians are very good indeed.

One pirate suggested that publishers and authors ought to be beaten about the head with their own books until they come to see the sense of accepting ebook piracy.

<<....Unless you go beat all the publishing execs and authors over the head with their own books, to knock some sense into them.....>>

I heard on the grapevine, which is never a trusted source, that the alleged author of this alleged comment allegedly claims to be a published author.
