Whoa, there son. Nobody bashed anybody on this list. my only comments where
about the free speech issue. (aimed at the stupid liability law) and the
legality of owning scripts for PERSONAL USE.

Get off it man. I've spent over $5000 on Gundam stuff in the last 8 years, yet I
have some fansubs, so what. Bottom line is how do you know you wanna plunk down
$500-$1000 to import a show if you've never seen it! Now that certain Gundam
shows are available in the US, the situation changes somewhat, but Until Zeta is
announced I see nothing wrong in watching the fansubs. Have you spent $700-1000
buying the Zeta LD boxes?

> Don't get me wrong. I have my own collection of fansubs... BUT I DON'T

No need to yell, sheesh. I agree with that, I only disagree with the idea that
making a sub for personal and club showings is video piracy.
