fair enough.
i'm not gonna sit here and tell you that if someone was gonna give me a leg up i wouldn't consider it, and yes if the circumstances are right i would go for it.

BUT, those circumstances cannot be illegal of hurt someone else.

and no, i'm not saying this because i walk on some higher moral ground, it's just that i've been on this rock long enough to know that sh_t DOES come back and bite you in the ass.

but yes, i do believe it's wrong.

that said, i do understand where you're coming from, even if don't fully partake of your view.

peace!
