    who describe those who disagree with them as "useless", "traitors", "exploiters" or "insensitive".  It rarely works very well to bring other people closer to your point of view.

    It was not a snarky one-liner but a serious question.  Responding that being against the piracy is the same as condoning exploitation of the third world by developed countries is the type of thing I used to hear from the Young Spartacans some decades ago.  It didn't generate them any supporters either.

    This sig line for rent.
