I had stopped posting for a while, because that damn "comment preventer" er "spam filter", the single most ridiculous and useless thing I have ever had the misfortune to encounter on the computer, was driving me crazy. Seriously, 2 out of 3 comments were rejected as spam, and that is being conservative.
I decided to check and see if they had gotten their heads out of their asses, only to find that they haven't. I tried posting this:
That entire wall of text, and I can't find a single valid point in all of it.
Regarding your assertion that "you have to prove you are innocent", this shows a complete misunderstanding of US law. I hope you are foreign. In the US, THEY have to prove that you are guilty, not the other way around. Well, unless you are accused of sexual crimes, then you are guilty until proven innocent. (Tongue in cheek, FYI)
You also say all that as if it is a foregone conclusion that it WAS in fact stolen. That isn't nearly so clear. Is it stealing to pick up something someone else dropped? What is the criteria for that? Surely, if I picked up a bubblegum wrapper you dropped, that isn't stealing. Is there a "value threshold" to determine theft vs "finders keepers"? How long would an item have to sit there to be determined abandoned property? See? It is hardly as clear cut as you seem to want make it out to be.
Think, it's one of your best weapons. Unless your brain is blunt.

I have tried my best to figure out what in that comment could POSSIBLY be triggering that monkey-coded damn spam filter but I have utterly failed. Oh, and I do believe I just insulted monkeys as a species.
