I wouldn't?  Are you aware of some other procedure by which I might get
a sword module other than scraping?  I'm certainly not, and I'd
certainly be pursing that avenue because I'm sure it's easier than
getting slandered on a bible software mailing list, of all places.  If
so, please share it with me.  You're making more and more assumptions
just to defend the indefensible.

The appropriate biblical response for Chris to have done would have been
to inform me that he thought I may be breaking the law and that he would
not help me in that regard.  He didn't, instead, he did what was easier
from the point of view of his flesh, made assumptions(as that's always
easier than asking, as you proved in this email), and began accusing me
of being a criminal.  

Seriously, if you guys treat Christians like this, I'd hate to see how
you treat non-believers.

Please, again, point me to the state or federal(as this is copyright) statute that you are relying on for this.  What we seem to have here is truth by repetition, that is, repeat something enough and it becomes fact.

I would also be quite interested in how crosswire might incur any
liability for what I proposed to do.  Please reference the statute in
your response.
