EclipseCrossword warez no-CD crack XXX latinas

I'm often somewhat amused when I see that someone has gone to the trouble of hosting a warez version of EclipseCrossword somewhere. Is it even possible to pirate free software? Not only that, but most of the time I see people offering EclipseCrossword for download somewhere (I prefer it when webmasters redirect to my site, rather than hosting the file directly), they usually just host the web installer, which doesn't actually include any product files, and instead downloads the latest versions directly from the official source, me. So, not only are they not providing some sort of l33t hax0r3d cracked version of my software, but they're actually probably not providing a version of it at all.

Though... the installer very well could still be infected with trojans or backdoors or the like, of course.

What motivates someone to so recklessly pirate something? I can utterly completely understand the draw of stealing expensive software. I mean, you're supposed to pay for it, but hell, you're getting it for free, and probably not going to get caught. Cha-ching! But pirating a free product says to me that you're just illegally downloading every single little thing you can find. If you had been to the product's website for three seconds to learn about it, you'd see that I use the word FREE five hundred times on the eclipsecrossword.com home page. So, clearly you haven't even done that.
