The spinning-out-of-control moral compass of the leak blog world, part 8,432: “Another thing is I didn’t steal any of this, I downloaded most of them through torrent sites so if you demand credit for it, I won’t give it to you because these are all manually downloaded by hand by me which takes hours even days to do it so if you want prove it for what I use, just ask and I’ll show it to you.” I mean, yeah, I read the site with that particular disclaimer, but surely I can’t be the only person whose breath is taken away by the ethical acrobatics committed within that sentence. Alternately, has the whole world gone mad except for me? [whatz-new]
