It's a SHAME for an admirable work to languish. But the shame is mostly 
on those who fail to allow it to be shared with the world. But I have 
sympathy with your side of this, too. As a Godzilla movie fan, I've 
bought bootleg copies of Japanese release prints of Godzilla films when I 
couldn't buy legal ones in this country. (I'm not proud of it, but it's a 
fact.) Now that I *CAN* buy legal copies, though, I've been doing so even 
though in a few cases my bootlegs from Japanese laserdiscs are better 
quality than the EP-speed dubs being officially released. Why? Because I 
felt it was the only right thing to do. I would personally draw the line 
at SELLING a bootleg tape, though. Which may make me some form of a 
hypocrite on some level. We each do what our passions require, and make 
whatever deals we can with ourselves to let us look in the mirror each

Hee-hee! You're almost as far gone as I am. Good to meet you, brother! 
Nice to know that obsessions are shared things.
