In Topic: Sleeping with a married person

Bringing up prostitution is interesting. Should a prostitute not take a client the they know is married?


I didn’t bring it up in that context but I don’t think an act is made less immoral because someone is paying you to do it.

Isn’t that the same as asking how much money are your morals worth?

I used pot as an example because it's relevant, the only person affected by the crime in that case is the consenting adult purchasing his product, if the adult decides to go steal some stuff to pay for their next fix do you pin the theft on the dealer?


You’re mixing the two crimes into one. Stealing is different than selling an illegal substance. So yes, you’re right, the drug dealer is not responsible for the theft. But the drug dealer is responsible for selling drugs.

Anyways this is so unrelated to sleeping with married people I’m going to stop debating it. If you literally think nobody is responsible for their actions as long as it’s not that bad (if that’s the point you’re making), or, if they’re only inflicting harm on people who understand the harm (if that’s your point), then it’s absurd. Would you include slavers in that logic of yours? ‘Well, if the person legit needs money because they’re starving and they agree to work in a brothel, is the pimp actually hurting anyone?’

To say that someone can violate any law they wish as long as the person they are hurting is okay with it is ... chaotic.

I mean, if the adults are consenting (re: not addicted at the time of first purchase) is it really anyones business? pot is legal now in a lot of areas and as far as I know there's been no great increase in any societal harm, eg. robbery, car accidents, etc.


So .. don’t put pimps in jail as long as they only sell sex to adults?

Don’t put people selling illegal guns in jail?

Where does this end? Or does it only apply to certain things? Clearly you think it only applies to certain things, which is why you brought up pot not being so bad. But who are you to say what laws aren’t that bad and are okay to break?

Oh, well yeah, in that case I agree with you, they are a shitty person, maybe I misread the question, I thought it was more about where the blame lies.

I disagree that the programmers are to blame, there are plenty of legit programs in the world that are used for illegit purposes (obviously a program designed specifically for cheating is a bad example), maybe something like greasemonkey is a better example, created to allow developers to more heavily utalize their own javascript capabilities, ended up being used for browser based autoplayers on Neopets, lol.

Cara: the problem there is you're using a 13 year olds lack of experience and life skills as a reason for them to not understand that what they're doing is stupid and hurting someone, I'm assuming the married man/woman is an adult of sound mind and normal human empathy.


So .. don’t put drug dealers in jail as long as they only sell crack to adults?

eh, I'm not saying you're not a dick for doing it, just that you can't be blamed for the behaviour of others.

For example, Neocodex (not sure the specific dev) created Abrosia, should the dev be blamed for the users who were looking to cheat, and going to cheat regardless of if they found Abrosia, or should you ban the cheaters instead?

if TNT really wanted to ban Neocodex as a site they would most likely have legal cause to do so, but instead they just keep banning the autobuyers themselves.


Bruh how far down the rabbit hole can you go with this logic though? Would you blame a drug dealer for selling crack to a 13 year old? Or is it not his fault because he’s just providing the service?
