Dusty, for all intents and purposes, you are no worse than you see him to be. Your signature line espouses "Do what you want because a pirate is free! You are a pirate!" As such, you obviously support pirates and all they have done and do. Rape, murder, theft, etc... These are all things which you claim to be against, yet you support. Leave Happy_Terd alone dude, hes done nothing to you, he posted something that he doesn't mean, and you know what, your no better.
This wasn't a flame bate so much as a public address to get people to leave him alone, hes learned his lesson, let him be.
