The best revenge would be to kidnap them and upload them. It would be
interesting to see an uploaded antitechnologist try to sue someone for
forcibly uploading them.... are they really the plaintiff, or merely a
devil spawned simulacrum???? If they don't have a soul, can they testify
in court, or even file suit????? If they are prolife, wouldn't voluntary
deletion of the upload constitute both murder, abortion, and suicide, or
merely the same thing as erasing a video tape????
