Internet Pirates

I write to you today with sad news.

I wanted to write something meaningful. Something that would trigger a light bulb, as you humans are so fond of saying, to the reality of what’s happening right under your noses.

The truth is that a new wave of terrorists have emerged and I’m not talking about some half baked religious group that trains suicide bombers and hides in the mountains.

No, these terrorists are much more refined than that. They can live next door to you, share your work space with you and even be your closest friends and you’d never know it. Many of my human friends have been affected by this progression of moral deterioration. Ask Stephanie Meyer’s, who was recently a victim.

I’m referring to Internet Terrorists. Don’t poo-poo me off, yet. These terrorists are so good at what they do that the media, and even some of the largest corporations in the world, turn their backs in the belief that all is lost.

These so called terrorists are also known as pirates and they have infiltrated themselves into the most personal area of your lives, into your homes. Have no doubt, they are extremely good at what they do. They steal.

They care not whom they steal from, the rich, the poor, the young, or the old.  They care not about race, nationality, financial, political or religious status.

They are so good in fact, that they steal from under the very noses of the most influential companies of the world. Brothersoft, Xilisoft, Symantec Norton, Microsoft, and countless others.

And don’t think for one minute that it couldn’t happen to you. It’s not just the big companies they are targeting, it’s people like you, who work hard to make a living. Nora Roberts, Kim Harrison, Laurel K. Hamilton, Jocelyn Drake, AJ Llewellyn, Bonnie Rose Leigh, Stephanie Hecht and even the dead. Michael Jackson, may he rest in peace, is being robbed from the grave so don’t be surprised if you find your name on their list soon.

It is truly a sad day in history that Twitter, one of the internet companies you support now supports Astatalk, a known band of thieves and you have turned a blind eye.

As for me, I will continue to rule my clan with a tight fist, lest we end up as demoralized as the rest of the human population.


  1. It makes my fangs ache with the desire to shred the necks of these filthy thieves. It is beyond comprehension how anyone could think they are so entitled to the hard work of another that they see nothing wrong with what they are doing. It is a question of morals, and even I, a vampire, have them.

  2. Sad thing is, they don't feel the slightest guilty. They think it's a glorious thing to take from the rich - big publishing houses - and give to the poor - themselves. They don't understand that the loot they take has to be written first - by you and me. And that we barely can make a living from it - if ever. So in fact they steal from the poor - authors who can't afford a lawyer - and give the rich. Themselves.
    Curse them.
