oh yeah i get it. You are the man, who is ready to go to jail, because there's 
pirated software in your hackerspace. Lucky for your space, i wish we had an 
scapegoat too. otherwise, you can demand from noone such things. and don't 
forget... This IS an open mailinglist. 
If i would be a clever hacker who whishes to do illegal things... first i 
wouldnt say it loud an proud on an archived ml and yeah, go to underground, 
at least with part of my identity...

hackerspaces should not be political, precisely because of this conflict. Some 
people of spaces surely helped agencies, some people wrote a spambot or 
crackingsoftware. depends on the people... you cannot force that on others of 
the space.
