What we want to know is what people think.....their age is irrelevant.
Why do you assume that younger adults will disagree with the statement? Come to that, why do you assume that older adults will agree? What we want to know is what peoples' perceptions are, and for what must be the umpteenth time - we aren't out to run a scientific poll here - that's not the intention at all. If we wanted to do that we would go about it quite differently.
Many thanks for your elegantly worded contribution. You too have obviously failed completely to understand what we're doing here. On the basis of your assertion that the question isn't worth answering I wonder why you bother wasting your time to join us here at all. In fact..........
1. What on earth makes you assume that young people will automatically say that it's older people who use pirated goods? I invite you to offer me one good reason why your assertion is true.
2. Conversely, why should an older adult automatically say that it's younger people who do it? How can you possibly know that to be the case?
You're making a sweeping assumption Jim, and it doesn't hold water. The age of the poll respondents matters not one iota - it's a quick consensus that we seek, not an age-related survey. If we wanted to do that we would have done it.
As for Old Shep's 'valid point'.........what was it for goodness sake - apart from a perfect demonstration of his talent for rudeness?
