    I was looking on local Craig's List for Office 2008. I found a guy selling a Mac with a lot of included software. I asked if he'd be willing to part with just Office 2008 as I'd like to have it, but don't need it...and don't want to pay retail for it.

    He replied saying he doesn't have the disks, but that the hard drive was pulled from another Mac and it came with all the software.

    I know it's not legal, and I know on MR that kind of stuff gets shut down quickly. Since it's on Craig's List, should I report that? There is a flag/report button on the page. Is that something Craig will care about?

    Just report it anyways if it bothers you that much. No, this "Craig" person doesn't check every report. I'm sure it's a system where when there's an x amount of reports, the post gets shut down.
