I pirate all my movies and TV shows. I used to pirate all my games too until I got a disposable income and got lazy and just used Steam for convenience. When I was in university I would download articles and books via libgen/scihub when I didn't feel like grabbing the PDFs via the university access internet. I consistently refuse to read paywalled news articles unless I can un-paywall it with 12ft or something similar, or archives.

Even if authors on @lib wanted to paywall the work, I wouldn't care. If I want to read it I will find a way to read it for free. And they can be happy that I actually take the time out of my day to read it.

Oh and you can shoplift books from bookstores and that is also 100% ethically fine with me.
