Missed the bit where the source blog is that of a professional librarian, did we?
And none of the actual book pirates (not to be confused with people sharing electronic copies of books gratis) I've known - and I've actually met a couple - have ever made a point of joking about or rationalizing their business. They're in it to turn a profit, same as any other businessman.
