Meet the person who just made me decide never to put my comedy on Spotify.

More anecdotal evidence to support my belief that there are people who simply refuse to pay for entertainment (so DRM, etc is pointless as they’ll find a way around it) and people who will pay for it when you make it easy for them to shut up and take their money (so DRM, etc just punishes them).

Also? Fuck this guy. It’s so insulting to tell a comedian who makes his living doing comedy “I refuse to pay for the work you do and the entertainment you give me, so how can I continue to enjoy the work you create without supporting you?”
Don’t be a dick, guy.
