Could not find any feedback on it, but i feel you deserve it.
I totally agree with you on all points.
In addition I would like to point out that most people would understand that buing from a fence is wrong. When it comes to Pirating, the torrentsite becomes a fence.
And yes, I have also in my youth gotten hold of pirated goods. Most everyone has.
In my case I stopped doing it for ethical reasons, and later when I started working in gaming media it became a matter of fact.
And off course, to not be a hypocrite, for me Piracy includes everything.
Not only games, but movies and music as well.
Thats my 5 cent.
