Besides that, it doesn't matter how much you talk about it, how much you try and put people down and call them thieves and tell them it's morally wrong, they don't give a shit. Because at the end of the day, they got a 60 dollar game or 20 or 100 dollar (Earthbound, Chrono Trigger, ect.) game for free and all they have to do is read about how wrong it is.
You're telling me that if you could get a car for free but it was illegal (and hurt the poor multi-billion dollar/year car company) but nobody would find out, you wouldn't do it? Or would you just keep driving around some little shitbox while everybody else was getting brand new cars for free? That's what it's like to some people - they are pirating games they can't afford or wouldn't otherwise buy.
Take me for example. I never buy games, I only ever rent UNLESS there is a good multiplayer that would make it more cost effective for me to buy. So when I pirate games, who do I hurt? The rental place? Who gives a shit?
As for morality when it comes to piracy, give me a break. People who pirate want free shit and they get it, people who don't are either stupid or they do in private and just like to act high and mighty on the net. That's all there is to it.
