Nah, just making a point by being extreme. Bad business practices doesn't make it ok to break the law and/or act immorally.

Nope! And it's also not against Gamestop's store policy to hijack planes and crash them into skyscrapers so 911 was totally cool you guys.

That's right! I just equated ripping off Gamestop for a $60 video game to the worst terrorist attack on American soil!

How do you like me now!?!?

It's their fault for having high prices in the first place, right???!

Is it against Gamestop's store policy to burn down BBQ joints?

I think it will be ok to burn down the BBQ joint only if you do it while you're naked.

Gasoline IS expensive. You should probably light that place on fire too.

That'll show 'em!

So you're saying that yes, corporate policy defines your morals for you.

Gotcha.

In that case you violated your own morals when you violated Gamestop's policy of purchasing a disc protection plan after the disc was destroyed.

So I don't like the prices the local BBQ joint up the street charges. They also have bad practices when service is slow, they offer no discount on the food. Sometimes the food is cold and they do nothign about it. I continue to eat there and they continue to annoy me with bad business practices. I assume it is ok if I burn the place down? In this case it isn't illegal and immoral? Because I decided they deserve it? Correct? I just want to make sure before I buy some gasoline, that stuff is expensive.

I'm sure that you're a model for how each and every person should live their lives.

May we all someday be able to measure up to the great Ninstationbox.

"So Gamestop policy decides what's "okay" and what isn't? Gamestop store policy now defines your moral compass?

I can hear the wheels a-turnin' in your head right now.

You get it whether you realize it or not.

If that's the case, the yes, per Gamestop's policy buying 20 discs and 20 replacement plans and intentionally destroying all 20 discs is "okay". Once again IF Gamestop defines for you what is right and what is wrong.

If that's the case though, does Gamestop store policy allow you to buy disc protection after a disc is broken?

Oh so it is ok for you to not be honest, but you expect others to be honest. IMHO, if you don't like a particular store (for whatever reason), don't shop there. Personally I don't think there is any excuse when it comes to lying.

I've seen what happens to people who are honest about corrupted/damaged disks when speaking to gamestop.

The employee shrugs and tells them that it is non-returnable.

This is a way to circumvent dishonorable and non-customer friendly business practices.

So you expect the person to be honest and up front about the situation? Is that correct?

If I was a retailer and somebody purchased a replacement item from me, explained why the first item broke (accidentally), and asked for a partial refund I would certainly provide it.

Absolutely no difference.

You are a strange person with questionable morals. Personally I think the Golden Rule explains how everybody should act. :)

You're missing the point and you know it Semschy - Why is it *okay* - per gamestop's policy - for me to intentionally deface a disk, yet doing what I've proposed is this is the worst thing conceivable?

Let's say that I buy the disk protection and deface 20 disks....Would you say that I am acting in a morally righteous fashion due to the fact that I am in accordance to gamestop's policy?

P.S. It IS okay per gamestop's policy, which is why I'm specifically presenting this comparison.

"Why is intentionally defacing a disk to receive a new one okay, yet purchasing two copies and returning one for a replacement due to an accident abhorrent?"

Because the insruance was purchased after the disc was destroyed. It's insurance fraud and you belong in jail.

What's so abhorrent about swapping out VIN numbers on a totalled car?

P.S. Intentionally defacing a disc to get a new one isn't ok either.
