Think of all the bad things that store did. "Surely they did something to warrant the hanging...."

Haha that's what I thought too, I almost didn't wanna read furthur. Like that kid on Interventions who shoved his cat through a wall when he lost his game That's just cruelty.

Oh, get off your high horse. You'd do it if you had the opportunity, and you know it.

I wouldn't. Not if the only reason is that the opportunity gave itself. Actually, I tried downloading a game once (Bioshock), but I felt so guilty that I couldn't enjoy the game. In the end, I bought it with my hard earned cash.
That's not to say I wouldn't do something similar out of pure hate for GameStop, or if I felt it was somehow justified, but even then I would end up feeling bad afterwards and I'd probably make it right again. And calling GameStop "an evil, heartless corporation who had it coming" doesn't really justify anything. Though karma counts for them as well, so I guess you can use it as an excuse... Okay, I'll stop arguing with myself now

On a side note; I'm glad to see (some of) the members here have generally high moral standards. I'm getting kinda tired of a friend of mine who in all seriousness can't understand why someone should pay for something when they can just "steal it for free and get away with it"...

I have a Backloggery now! Nothin' fancy, but feel free to add me as a friend.

Ok, let's be real for a minute. If this is the worst thing you do in your life, you should die a saint in my opinion.

I'm willing to bet a lot of the people that posted negatively toward you have done worse things in their lives. I know I have at least.........waaaaaaay worse.

Pro-Tip - If you have to ask, "Is this morally wrong?", you probably shouldn't do it.

No really; I've never done anything bad, yet. The worst thing I've ever done is downloading some shows, which, when I think about it, isn't really any better...
But don't worry, one day I'll probably screw up bad and do something horrible. Most people do as far as I can tell.

@chunky_droid: If it's nagging you, just set it straight, and that'll be the end of that.

Morality is highly overrated, it's really more of a handicap than anything else.

And you'd go crying to the cops like a little girl the first time someone slapped you upside the head.

Sure, morality is highly overrated. Who cares about not having to worry about being rmurdered, raped, or robbed without provocation and threat of incarceration? Not you!

TBD lives in a moral vacuum. Just look at that face. That is the face of someone who has never once given thought to right or wrong. Don't listen to her.

I once punched a clown in the balls for no good reason.

So you ruined his juggling routine, eh? I hope he ran you over with his clown car.

I say return the cat, it is obviously defective and evil. A good cat would never have caused you to commit such an atrocious crime.

Im opting for the Death Penalty but I will settle for Life in Prison, for persuading its owner to do an act of theft. Cats fault, you good man.

Gamestop rapes people on trade-ins anyways

Well, it is morally wrong. However, in this thread you're not the "worst"

Justifying what essentially amounts to theft because you don't agree with the business practices of the company you stole from is equatable to vigilantism. Vigilantism, the anarchic belief that you have some kind of right to judge and execute a sentence outside of the laws and society we live in displays a whole host of sins, far beyond the mere act of theft.

Of course, the original poster isn't guilty of this, the people going "OMFG Gamestop deserved it they rip us off!!11" etc etc are. That's the real moral "wrongness" in this thread.

Well thanks for all the feedback guys, I'm thinking I should probably take it back. Though it did seem like a good idea at the time.

I didn't lose any sleep over it but it's been plaguing my mind for the last couple of days so maybe from a karmatic perspective I'm being told to take it back.

Once again thanks guys there's been a lot to think about from your comments.

Seriously if you do that you're nuts! Keep the game and move on. Give the difference in cost to a homeless guy if it makes you feel better, but don't get yourself banned from the shop by "doing the right thing" or whatever!

I won't say it's "only fair" as some have, but you didn't shoplift the thing either, so there's some middle ground. I'm pretty sure I've returned goods I accidentally damaged myself and passed it off as defective before and I didn't lose any sleep over it.

I agree that it wouldn't accomplish much to try to tell the store now, and would only cause further complication or confusion. If you still feel guilty, just take the difference in cash it saved you and do something nice for someone.

Twitter is a good place to throw your nonsense.
