Well steal is an absurdly loaded word given that their cards are actual physical objects and I haven't walked out of any stores with boosters in my pockets. But anyway, does that apply to movies and music and every other media that we all "steal" regularly? I think I've rewarded the makers more than enough for their paper and ink and artificial scarcity.

Why do I need
to do that?

Well I do feel bad for them, but I'm not interested in subsidizing them. It's not my job to cover up the shitty parts of capitalism at my own expense so that other people can do things I'm not interested in.
