And vice versa, what is deviant, is not always illegal; ie. your example of cheating on a test. Highly frowned upon socially, but not criminal in any way.

Your two examples aren't apples to oranges. If you are attempting to argue that cheating it IS socially acceptable, I have a couple hundred fellow classmates you should talk to.

Either way, I doubt Ferra has even bothered to read my responses, because he is so focused on people's perception of him rather than the facts of the law, he'll wind up paying it just because he gets convinced he's morally obliged to.
i read all your responses and the links you posted (thx btw)
actually..your response is the only objective, neutral answer I see in the entire thread...

most of the other responses here are so judgmental and presumptuous... which is probably why i was so irritated and defensive
