Smile Throwing My 2 Cents In

I got suckered in a long time ago when I discovered Morpheus - I paid 18.00 for the privledge of a free list of P2P's. But I did get a 1 year "membership" for what I don't know. Once I upgraded my brain I did a whois and found the actual owner of the site and sued in small claims and got court and bank costs plus 3x my purchase price back because the judge said the guy was a parasite. So I wound up with about $145 and a lot of wasted time. The point is, learn from your mistake and don't let these guys slide. Complaining is okay but you have to do something to stop these folks -- I like the hacking idea - but I don't condone it (not that there is anything wrong with that {Seinfeld - reference})
