Default Pirating confessions

Okay. First off, this ain't a thread for ROM requests, damn it! Second, estimate all of the stuff total. I just wanna get a general idea of what the trend is for media piracy amongst ZD users. When I say piracy, I mean:
  • Music (Any songs. It doesn't have to be an entire album.)
  • Movies (Self-explanatory)
  • Games (ROMs, ISOs, or PC games.)
  • Programs (Photoshop, MS Office, etc.)
Dunno why I thought of this, but...oh well. Oh, and one more thing...
[IMPORTANT]
Don't list your collections in a post. In fact, don't post. Just do the poll, and be on your way.

Assuming people vote in it, I think this poll is going to be a bit unbalanced unless you multiply those choices by about fifty.

Out of curiosity, do you want the #s to reflect items that were pirated but later obtained legally? I have a stack of at least a dozen CDs that are still in the original shrink wrap because I pirated them but enjoyed them enough to go ahead and purchase them.

I'm pretty sure I've downloaded more than 200 things in my life. It started off on Napster and now it's between BearShare, uTorrent, and bulk storage sites. I downloaded so much where it does get hard to keep track of what I want to have and what I want to try out.

Hm, I wonder if fansubs of shows that aren't even close to commercially available in your country should count? I guess it is piracy still, but it would be pretty hard for me to get some of that stuff.

lesse, with the romsets and albums of downloaded music, I would say it's in the 10s of thousands ;p

201+ seems awfully conservative for this board. I'd be able to pass 1000 on music tracks alone. Then you have to add in the fansubs, MAME set (full 0.127), GoodSNES set, and various other games. I'm not even close to done yet either, there's still plenty more out there and plenty more room in here.

Still, I must say I'm impressed that there is anybody here on an emulator-themed message board with less than 201 roms. I was of the assumption that if you had fifty you probably had five hundred, but so far three people claim otherwise.

I forgot about ROM files somehow.
