One of my favorite artists doesn't tour ever. Because he couldn't make enough money to live as an artist. He has to work on his albums between running a trucking business and providing for his family. Thanks to the advent of illegal download. I'm not going to say I don't because I do. But not all artists can tour. That is why I buy all of that artist's material always.

Seriously, I don't get what the hell is up. What'd I do to get that kind of reaction? Hmm?

I just don't get why you argue about semantics. Both this and the "14 songs" argument aren't worth giving more than two seconds of thought too.

For the record, I too consider purchasing digital files to be a waste of money. If I'm going to purchase an album, I want to purchase the entire experience of unwrapping the cellophane, examining the cover art, and so on. I don't feel as if I really "own" an album if it's a collection of files on my computer, regardless of the money exchanged. Digital music files have only a utilitarian purpose, offering the listener the music but little else. As a result, MP3s are cheaper than physical albums, but you are basically throwing your money away unless you purchased the vinyl, in which case the digital files may not be available to you. Personally, I wouldn't feel guilty downloading the album if I've already purchased it, but hey.

You just have an amazing skill at getting bogged down in arguments that are either trivial or off-topic or both.

Look I'm sorry that something like that happened. The last thing I want to do is sit here and argue with people. I didn't start that discussion, I was just a part of it. But I don't have control over other people misreading the thread and responding to me as though I said something I didn't. And I also have no control over other's snide responses. That's the point where something really changes from discussion to an argument/fight.

Well they're my points. If you don't agree it's okay to just leave it at that. Perhaps I might not have the best of abilities of saying things the way I'd like to say them. But it takes two (and in this case... like... 5) to tango.

Your posts are so often very frustrating, they are just dripping with uniformed arrogance.

Time lost arguing with LuckyNumber7 winds up in the same place as missing socks.

Did you get to $68K per year already?

Hey guys, I figured out who's actually buying music on iTunes!

It's the people who aren't downloading it illegally.

There. Question answered.

And because the answer is so obvious, that's why I called it a stupid question. No one is saying that more people aren't downloading illegally these days - of course it is. We all know that. But obviously, not everyone is, otherwise the iTunes music store would be gathering cobwebs.

Oh whatever. Would it kill you to try and lose the offensive attitude?

It just might. Would you like to the take the discussion in that direction? Concerted efforts toward improving social interaction may have a very significant impact on health and well-being. Then again, they may not.
