    That's a pretty shitty thing to do, but tbh, I'm not surprised. There are people on this forum who steal shit and go resell it and then get mad when they get caught and banned. Or they get upset when they ask how to do it without getting caught and someone tells them they're dicks for even thinking about doing it.

    The truth is someone is always waiting in the wings to steal something and make a profit off of it. Personally, if someone stole something of mine, I'd go after their asses. But I'm anal like that. Because for one: I worked hard to create that. And for two: you're a douche bag for taking my hard work and not even giving me credit for it.

    Yes, it's really cool that we have a website that lets us print stuff in 3D form. But just like each new advancement, people just want to exploit it for all it's worth.

    I'm sure that there will be laws to clearly define this issue when it gets to be REALLY bad, like someone prints out the panties of a US Senator. Until then I'll just sit here and watch the debate. I'm a firm believer in not stealing from others but I'm sure someone here is going to come in and piss all over my comment and try to make me feel like shit because I expressed myself. It's the way the cookie crumbles.
