Wassercrats, I know you're very busy trying to respond to all of the other replies to your OP so I'll try to be brief.
You have a strong conviction that what O'Reilly is doing is immoral and a disservice to society. You believe that you are providing society with a service by bringing to to the attention of others. For this, I applaud and thank you. You seem to have an unquestioning stance on your belief and for that I admire you. We've attempted to provide well-reasoned replies to your posts, some more confrontational than others, and you've rejected all of them. After reading your last reply, I'm rather certain of this. I must now ask you: can we agree to disagree? =)
To my fellow monks, Wassercrats's beliefs are deeply rooted. All of the replies thus far have produced no change in his position. Please consider that before responding to any other replies in this thread. Wassercrats seems to be on a destructive path with the only victims being his XP and his reputation here at the monastery. Have pity on him and let what you see as self-evident to come to him as he continues to learn. With regard to your voting practices in the future, please don't get into the habit of reputation-voting Wassercrats. As with anyone, read what he says and allow the merit of the content to determine the way you vote.
Update: Ugh, that was pretty cheesy. That's the last time I post anything after being deprived of that much sleep. Anonymonk, thanks =)
