THE RIAA IS JUST DOING WHAT IT CAN TO MAKE THE GOOD MEN AND WOMEN OF THE MUSIC INDUSTRY SURVIVE. IT ISNT JUST ABOUT THE BRITNEY SPEARS AND ROLLING STONES. I HAVE A FRIEND WHO IS A SOUND ENGINEER AND LAST YEAR HE ONLY MADE $100,000. THAT IS WAY DOWN ON WHAT HE EARNED BEFORE. IT IS BECAUSE PEOPLE LIKE MUXTAPE STEEL EVERYONES MUSIC THAT THIS HAPPENED. YOU WOULDN’T GO INTO A RECORD SHOP AND STEEL A CD SO WHY WOULD YOU STEEL MUSIC ON THE INTERNET AND MAKE PEOPLE POORER. IT IS ILLEGAL AND IT IS CAUSING A LOT OF PAIN. THE RIAA IS JUST TRYING TO SAVE PEOPLES JOBS.

I think my Sarcasm Detector got a bit dented up while I read this. Is it a plaintive troll or an honest malcontent? I’m seriously unsure. The cadence suggests troll, but the sincerity screams honest meathead, you know? The spelling error is also misleading, steel instead of steal… hmm.
What do you think, honest complaint or flame bait?
