Evil For Evil's Sake

A long time ago, I thought that bad people chose to be bad for a reason. Usually to gain something. When there's something in it for them, they do bad things to the world at large. I didn't believe there were bad people like in the movies, being evil solely for the sake of being evil. Even if someone is bad to another just to make the other suffer, then that alone is the purpose, because I don't have to tell you guys that there's a lot of people out there who get off on making others suffer, phisically and psichologically. Even the Devil does evil things to corrupt makind, not just for the (literal) Hell of it.

I know it's a bit confusing, but bare with me.

I'm a member of this art website called Deviantart. My hobby is to make cellphone wallpapers, which I have a lot stored on my PC. So I decided to put them there so everyone could enjoy and download them.

Got a message right then and there, asking me if a certain Bender wallpaper was an original. I said no, I adapted it from a comic book page. "Then that's ripping, isn't it?", he answered.

I could see where this was going. "Look, I get it. I'm deleting it right now", I responded. He would report to the webmaster that it was not an original work, and I would get in trouble, and I had to defend myself by saying it wasn't a question of copyright, and so and so...now tell me, what does that guy gain by doing this? I mean,  it's only a cellphone wallpaper!

So, moral of this pointless, meaningless, idiotic and paranoid story is...there are people out there that do evil things for evil's sake. No other reason at all. And that scares the hell outta me.
