You're talking about something totally different.

Answer my argument:

- I think Tivoization is *good*.

There is NOTHING TO FORGIVE!

Your whole idiotic argument misses the point:

What Tivo did is *good* in my opinion!

Can't you get that through your skull?

They gave the software back! Be happy! They *followed* the rules. They
*followed* the tit-for-tat.
