Re: we have spirit yes we do we have spirit how about you

"US federal law now consists of about 96 bazillion pages worth of codes, which together span nearly 34 zillion volumes. If the spirit part ain't in there, either add it in or let it go (preferably the latter)."

Coming on a tech site, comments like this are (unintentionally, I'm sure!) hilarious. There are "96 bazillion pages worth of codes" exactly BECAUSE people look for every possible loophole to give themselves an advantage. Complaining that there are too many laws is rather like complaining that there are too many lines of code in a program when all that's really needed is a "Do What I Meant" button.

...Unless, of course, the intended argument is that cheating people is OK if they can't stop you; in which case the person propounding that argument is an ass.
