I'm gonna completely avoid the whole ethics of piracy thing, but this is an important point to make. When I buy music, I develop a compulsory need to put time into it. I spent money on it, therefore I want to get my money's worth of my purchase. When I was pirating music as a wee lad, albums upon albums wouldn't even be listened to just because I felt zero motivation to give them a chance.

wildyoung may not have as much quantity in his library as some of us, but I'd be willing to bet he's given those songs more plays than a lot of people here have given the music they "own."
I agree with all this.
