Not a problem, if you watch on a pc or through a htpc on your TV. Stripping any protections from discs is easy nowadays. Even Cinavia has been defeated...

I watch all the season's shows I'm following outside of Crunchy, so Crunchy's restrictions aren't a problem for me, not in any way, shape or form. Besides, I prefer a more tangible format that I can watch off-line at my leisure.
Perhaps not politically correct or entirely legal, but, well, I watch what I watch. If someone has an issue with it, it's their headache, not mine...

I think this post is for members in like UK or Scandinavian regions who don't get same shows for licenses restrictions even though they pay for CR membership I think in my opinion its bs

Oh I see, this is about region locking. Honestly I think region locking is a ridiculous and unnecessary concept to begin with, but it would also be hard to outlaw, since every individual country has its own laws and distributors. As a result, content can't exactly be distributed on a worldwide scale easily. Still, I find region locking to be pretty useless. I believe by using a VPN or proxy, it can be bypassed anyway.

Worse come to worse, region locking pisses people off enough to pirate, and companies don't get their sum. Doesn't really bother me.

Putting aside the legal and immoral (or lack thereof if you view it that way) aspect of this, if someone wanted to get around restictions (which is extremely easy to do regardless of where you live) they could easily and CR wouldn't know. Though for most of us I imagine this would never be an issue anyways.
