    This is not about us, what you did is a direct violation of forum rules (Rule 7). It is illegal and could get Michael in a lot of trouble. You should contact the admins and ask to have it removed immediately.

    Using sexual slurs may enter into "other obscene material". As saying to pirate enters into: "respect other's copyright" - section 5.

    I find it hard to believe, you need a credit card for steam.

    First of all I bought the orange box, and some other box, in a store, and activated it on steam. It gave me HL2 Portal, HalLlife, counter strike and a few more games.

    Secondly you can use paypall.

    Third option move to the Netherlands

    The dutch steam users were able to explain to Valve that a credit card is not very common over here.
    Valve now has an option, which only seem to be their for the dutch, but it comes down to an online bank transfer.

    ( its called Ideal )

    Furthermore I like to add, that pirating because a company stops developers from making a Linux version, is for me oke.
    That's what this topic was about.
    The reason, I don't have a creditcard, sounds like bs to me.

    I also like to add pirating games from the one company, that gave us gaming on Linux, on a never seen before scale, sounds very lame to me.

    Here in Germany we can use the PaySafeCard for that, a prepaid card that is widely accepted for German web services. Works without a problem. Alternatively I could go into one of the many electronic stores and just buy a copy of the game I want, as you say.

    If I could use Bitcoin to pay I would use that, but they don't take BTC.

    I understand that piracy is not a good thing when we have these companies offering Linux games, but I wish they were more flexible with the payment options.
    I have been wondering for years why the don't give us a bankaccount number so we can transfer the money.

    That how we ( dutch) pay most bills, and why a credit card is not that much used over here.

    I don't have a debit/credit card. Fortunately, Steam accepts all popular russian web-wallet services, such as yandex-money, web-money, and qiwi-wallet.

    Default DCMA safe harbor rule protects forums like this

    Under the DCMA, web forums that accept user content are not liable for content posted by 3ed parties so long as they remove it they receive a DCMA takedown notice.
    Michael can shrug off the bluffing threats about piracy links here-because under the DCMA, only the owners of the copyrights have the authority to send a DCMA takedown\
    notice.

    Were it not for this safe harbor, Youtube and other video hosting services would face billions in lawsuits over music in videos. Youtube only scans for backing music out of
    fear that their sheer size could induce Congre$$ to amend the DCMA under pressure from the RIAA and MPAA. The threats here are like Getty letters arriving from someone
    other than Getty!

    I wish they accepted mud as payment. I dug some up last night, and I'd like to spend it, but Valve won't take my mud. I guess i'll just pirate their games instead. They should really start accepting mud.
