schestowitz"[PJ: Three things. 1) Aaron had a JSTOR subscription to download. 2) And if this is true, the blame isn't just on the prosecutors, who were willing to sign off on this more humane deal, not that I think Aaron should have been facing what he was facing and not that they showed much humanity in general.

schestowitzexample of why it's best to wait until you have all the facts before assigning blame. Life is always more complex than you think. And the sad part is, MIT may have thought it was protecting its institutional interests. But what it did in the end is put an eternal black mark on MIT that nothing will fully erase. 3) Fame is terrible. People think they know you based on things they've read and some hop on board with their own agendas, Jan 17 23:04
schestowitzeven if it harms you. And yet people, even prosecutors, chase it with zeal, even at the expense of their own humanity. A conundrum.]"Jan 17 23:04
