    If only there was a word for it...

    Warner sits on the board of the Motion Picture Ass. of America, which has alleged that the operators of the Pirate Bay are profiteering criminals.

    Profiteering criminals, hmm, there must be a word that means that. Nope, I can't think of it.

    I've got it - Colonists! Although we call them Americans now and they might get upset if you go around refering to them as profiteering criminals.

    You were thinking of Sid Meier's Colonization, right?

    "Although we call them Americans now and they might get upset if you go around refering to them as profiteering criminals."

    lol - I dunno, seems pretty fitting for most US business's.

    btw - I hate seeing z's in there... I remember laughing with 4 other people for hours at how stupid a cop was on "Cops", he kept saying "So sir, have you been burglarized?".... only to find out a month later that it's an actual work in the american language. I think thats criminal... what was wrong with the word burgled that they had to butcher the language so?? :(

    OED prefers 'z'

    "btw - I hate seeing z's in there"

    Actually 'z' is the prefered letter according to the OED. It ws even used to solve an Inspector Morse case where the murdered English prof would never have used an 's' because they would know to use 'z' so you can't get much more British than that! It only became the fashion to use 's' in the latter half of the 20th century. So you can't really blame the Americans for that.
