I kid. Interesting note on the subject, mininova has been essentially killed.

Yeah I know, the copyright protectors are stepping up there game on public sites, however only to the expansion of private sites with smaller more exclusive communities.

I pirate like all my music, but the Marxist in me says it's just "equally distributing". :P

How much and how do you do it?

I break into recording studios and video game companies and take their stuff. Where does that fit in XD?

I only pirate approx. 4GB a month, as I'm only on a 5GB plan and use a lot of it for Youtube vids, pr0n and general browsing. My usage will be going up to 55GB per month (30GB off-peak) this coming Friday when I get wireless, so that will increase substantially.

I get movies, albums and the newest episodes of Simpsons, How I Met Your Mother, Family Guy, Curb Your Enthusiasm.

Pirate mode. I mostly used demonoid and mininova when they weren't broken, I've been using Pirate Bay in past few days.

What are these "elite" private sites and how do I become a member? I had to get invited to demonoid so I presume that's a private site?

You have to be elite to get in. No lol just kidding. Actually if you know someone IRL that trusts you, they'll send you an invite. Once you're on one private site, you can usually get a buttload of moar invites by lurking in that site's forums.

Eventually You'll be like me and be on tons of private sites.

Demonoid is technically private, but anyone an get on, so no, its mainly a public site.

Me: To date I've pirated 1.6 TB

700 GB - TV Shows including every episode
50 GB - Music
700GB - Movies (including tons of blu-rays)
50 GB - Program installers
100 GB - PC Game ISO's

I am a Pirate God

Yikes, I would like to do a HD swap with you. :)

I've got about 1TB of stuff through swapping HD data with mates, mostly movies, TV and music.

Heh, I'm definitely a Pirate Noob, as I use(d) Limewire and other similar sites and etc.

But all things considered, I've gotten at least 3 GB of music, and Lord knows how many GB for movies. Not much, but enough to satisfy me.

I've also gotten a lot of info that way. I got another 2 TB station on newegg for 140 bucks, so I have plenty more space.

I don't pay cable. Name a TV Show

I don't think piracy is wrong, but I hardly see the point. It is useful if you don't have the money on hand, but otherwise why bother? Just buy the stuff if you want it and you have the money. Same use, same point, same result.

When you're saving for retirement, there is never money on hand.

I'd question how old you are, because then this statement makes sense.

Mostly though, I find most of those that download pirated material are teenagers and college students without much money to throw around. I've never had such an issue with a lack of on-hand funds.

No, I'm just implying there isn't a need. Nor is there a legitimate reason, seeing as money is material object.

How would age factor in with retirement savings? A smart cookie begins saving very early.

Anyone who has earned income can invest in a Roth IRA.
