I also find it quite brazenly brave that someone would openly admit to possessing hacked software before the very author of the software in the same thread, and others justifying the practise...
I neither possess the hacked software nor am justifying the practice. I'm just sick of the bull%#%#@ spewed by software writers "well the hacked version will ruin your car lol" dude it access the same database and error codes, it just bypasses your registration.

I'm against it but don't bull$(#)$* us.

Software companies will always tell you the hacked versions are bad. If they say there is nothing wrong with them, then people wont even worry about using them. It all comes down to how the crack functions that will determine its possible effects on the program.

I havent paid for most of my software(but I did buy vag-com) http://sourceforge.net

It's morally wrong to steal software that someone spent time developing. They deserve payment for their work.

Does this justify lying?

Sorry, just had to chime in here...

I don't pay for most of my software either - but none of it is cracked or stolen: Sourceforge.net is an open-source software development site where TONS of very useful software can be had for no cost, per the authors wishes. You should check it out.

And yes, I did pay for my vag com (HEX com actually).
