still have to question someone's mental capacity if they BUY pre-release software.... from eBay..... supposedly for $150. You'd think he'd know that there are ways to get Windows 7 in a way that isn't necessarily illegal.... and not quite as stupid as paying $150 for something that apparently didn't have a picture of the real product.

Not to put too fine a point on it, but, did you read the story? I can see if you just skimmed through it, in which case I would complain about the internets and kids today not being able to read, or alternatively not being able to read something that is more than a paragraph in length. But just in case. I am going along with the premise that you got linked to a url by the Washington Post, and are thus the unwitting victim of a reprinted post from Cracked.com.
