Thumbs up This forum is full of people with character and morals

Please Login to Remove!

I'm not quite sure what to call you. Here are 3 examples and you figure it out:

-Guy gets free wifi at his girlfriends house
-Guy finds a Blackberry
-Guy want a theme for free

Within the first one or two follow up posts to each of these, the ethics police jumped in to tell them how "bad" they were. Getting free wifi is a felony; guy should jump through his @ss to find the owner of the BB; it would be easier for guy to buy theme than ask someone to give it to him for free.

Who the hell are you guys? No other forum that I belong to is full of such prudes and people willing to immediately condemn others for trying to buck the system....

Not sure I'll be back here much, and I bet most of you will be glad to see me go. Have fun being douche bags....

I was about to start a thread about the above. People who hate this place and stay. I love it. I must run now we have a meeting of prudes I must attend. This should be in Rants and Raves FYI if we want to get technical or Off-Topic.

Luky for us a prude will move it to the correct location.

I would have to agree with Ruskastud. Every forum I have EVER been to has been there to help people get the things that they want cheap and easy. I mostly use the forum to become familiar with the topic for which it is provided but I love the fact that they are there to help people get the things they need/want for free/cheap.

Glad to see you go? We didn't even know you were here... lmao. I am sure the mods on your favorite site (judgementalguyforums.com) are far less prudes and much more understanding of the plight of the unethical.

EDIT: ah ha ha! Nice title edit... kudos to whomever.

This one does the exact same:

Media Center Free Themes
A Forum dedicated to people without Data Plans
A forum on how to get Internet Access via a generic data plan.

etc....

This place does not like, demands, stolen items, etc...

Okay I see your point I didnt know that those forums were here (still new), but the thread that is talking about the stolen wi-fi! who gaf? is it really that big a deal if the guy has permission to use it? NO! and everyone on there is telling him practically that he should burn in hell for even thinking about it! I have wi-fi in my house and i couldnt care less if someone else is using it! crazy!

Personally, I like the idea of a forum with ethics. If you don't like it, you don't have to return. It's a free country. The mamas of these "police" should be proud of them.

A Grandma's view.

You might care if someone is looking at kiddy porn or talking to little kids and arranging meetings. Then you'll be really suprised when the cops show up and arrest you with a news crew broadcasting the whole thing live. Happened to a friend of mine... So it does happen. And incase your wondering he's gotten it all straightened out now. But he still does receive a hard time for it

WOW! had no idea that, that could happen! I guess I was just ignorant to the fact either way I think that the people could make their point and leave it at that.

I am glad you are will to share your Wi-Fi. I recommend you change the SSID to Free Wi-Fi or Open Access and don't put on WEP or WPA you will be a hero to your neighbors and let them know it is okay.

More and more ISP are capping Internet speeds once you reach a certain amount of data transfer a month. So this does have a negative effect on the legit user.

You have to realize you can't make a point in a public FORUM and not expect to get a response.

okay obviously I dont go around advertising it I live in a little town that is not very densely populated but, if I lived somewhere where there were people EVERYWHERE i maybe more inclined to put a password on my access.
