Sick of Limewire

I would like to start this post by saying I don't have a problem sharing. I like to share. Am all about sharing. Dream of world peace. Yoga for everyone and free Starbucks. But what I can't stand is Limewire. Not Limewire itself, but the slavish devotion some have to it. Honestly, dude, is it really going to break the bank to spend $0.99 on a song? If so, I would say you have bigger problems then trying to save money on music.

What I don't understand is what is so bad about buying your music. According to my sister they download way too much music to play on their boat to pay. I mean they might not be able to afford a boat if they had to pay $9.99 for an album! I mean its the boat or like 2802 albums. Tough choice.

What is worse though is when those who don't want to pay convince those who have sketchy computer skills to start to use LimeWire instead of an easy to use system like iTunes. This helps no one, especially the person they call to figure out why their LimeWire is not working. I don't know why. I pay for my music. I am happy to pay my piddly little amount for the convenience of downloading and transferring my music. I don't even mind sharing my songs with you by authorizing your computer. When did paying for your music become such a hardship.

I get MAD at people who say that iTunes is a rip off. It's 99cents! and when you get music for free off the internet, it is called STEALING. We live in a capitalist society where you must PAY for things. Why should music be any different?
Plus itunes is super easy and recommends stuff to me that I like.

You've touched a nerve here, my friend. I could rant about this all day.

I hope that you are not referring to your mother-in-law. I don't steal your music, I just borrow it. I will return it when I am finished.
