This question https://academia.stackexchange.com/a/76733/6526 presents the problem where the OP has a problem with his teacher telling him to crack software despite the fact that he knows it's illegal.
One of the more highly upvoted answers encourages him to use the cracked software despite the fact that it's illegal and the user has said it makes him feel morally uncomfortable.
I flagged with a custom flag saying that we can't condone the use of cracked software, but my response was -
declined - flags should only be used to make moderators aware of content that requires their intervention
So... what? We are going to tell people it's ok to crack software from other countries because 'hey the companies there are rich enough and it's not a big deal here cause... culture, even though it is against the law;' which is basically the stance taken in the answer?
As a software dev I find this highly troubling.
Note I don't think this is a dupe of this question I know we aren't the licence police, but at the same time actively encouraging someone who hasn't already cracked software to crack software is, I think, far different from trying to police someone who already has done it.
Also I think not a dupe of this question, accourding to international treaty which China is party too cracking Mathmatica there is illigal. That's not at question here.
