Salem Jones probably flunked all his math classes

It takes a special kind of stupid to not be able to tell the difference between 0 and 100,000.
'While I question the exact precision of these numbers--pirates are dishonest by nature--it appears they reflect a strong enough version of reality to bring a serious issue to light.' - One Soul Thrust's lead vocalist Salem Jones, on the fact that his band is claiming their album has been pirated 1000,00 times when it's not even available on any piracy sites.

Switched.com has the best headline for this fiasco: Obscure Canadian Band Mistakes Spam for 100K Illegal Downloads

Imageshack has an example of the spam that fooled Salem Jones.
