Pushy, demanding stream-ripping people.

I thought some of you might get a kick out of this one. In the past there was a discussion regarding people ripping your stream then wanting to know the song they just ripped! So I'm not the only one. But now, I have a ripper telling me how to do it so he can more easily rip-off the music. Here is the short version of how much gall some jokers have...

From this point, I will probably not respond again to any of them.
