Going to get sued for illegal downloading! Help!

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Muusers, May 28, 2012.

  1. So I've been using uTorrent for about six months now, everything was going fine. I only shared my library with people that I was DL'ing from. Very cool. I've been trying to download the entire "Rolling Stone Top 500 Songs of all-time" and I was about halfway done.

    Today I got out to my mailbox to find an envelope with a distinct "RIAA" letterhead on it. I flipped out and opened it to find a pretty harsh letter from the RIAA, basically telling me that they are going to sue me (I have about 3000 mp3s on my computer). I called up my mom and my mom got scared she said you're moving with your auntie and uncle in Bel-Air. I whistled for a cab and when it came near the license plate said fresh and had dice in the mirror. If anything I could say that this cab was rare, but I thought nah, forget it, yo home to Bel-Air!

    I wonder how many guys who post here watched that show when it was originally on. I like it. I learned lots about black folks from watching it. That show, Living Color, Diff'rent Strokes, 227, and Martin.

    This ranks way up there for worst thread idea ever.

    What is it with guys who think they're hilarious when they're not? Is it the new TB fad that they all decide to post their lame material here, lately? Eesh...

    I'm old enough to remember the show, but I don't get the joke. When I saw the thread title, I got prepared to share my experience of getting sued by the RIAA 5 years ago. So much for that!

    So is this thread about bad jokes or is this an attempt to get a bunch of musicians to side with you for steeling from other musicians?

    Yeah... good luck with that.

    What has your knickers in a wad lately? You are typically the guy who posts in threads telling others to be nice and respectful, but the last few days you've been different.

    Nothing, really.

    Only expressing my opinion in regards to this joke. I'm sorry if you felt it was expressed in a less than cordial manner, but at least I didn't talk about suing the guy. lol!

    Me too. I learned they didn't have much in common with the actual folks I knew.
