I'm not in charge anymore of who does or doesn't get in to GeekU, but I am a Teacher there. After reading your continued replies as to why it's "ok" for you to be using illegal software, what would lead us to believe that you won't simply install them again once you were accepted? I don't see how we could trust that about you at this point.

The point to me is not that someone has ever done the wrong thing, it's about how people change for the better. It's been years since I used cracked/pirated software, about 6 years ago I went through all my music CDs and snapped the copies up and put them in the bin. Sure I don't have access to those programs or music anymore, but I don't really miss it. I'm never going back.
The fact that you have on your machine right now two programs installed illegally is not the problem, the problem becomes when you continue to use them and don't uninstall them. Get rid of them and take a step forward - we'll all respect you for that. Leave it on your machine, you'll likely find yourself denied access to GeekU entry as well as contributing to your possible removal from this site (obviously up to admins, not me, just theoretically here).
Theft is theft and I don't need it in my household.

In your case and what you have admitted to having installed, here are the alternatives which work just as well and the great thing is they are Free
Microsoft Office is called Open Office
There is no reason for the use of the illegally obtained and installation of any program now. If you do not have the money for the purchase of the program then as the others have stated you go without or do a little research and find the alternative free programs online. You will be legal and maybe be able to hold your head up without fear of being arrested and fined for theft.

We don't have time to spend discussing your particular brand of logic...this topic is closed.
