Do you use crack or nulled scripts/themes ?
If you will search on Google then you will get tons of premium scripts/themes/plugins for free. But those are not legit, those are nulled/illegal scripts. Sometime I use nulled/cracked scripts to check out the script. If I will like the script then I buy a legit version of the script. But I believe that many people are using nulled themes/scripts in their live website. But I think that nulled scripts are not safe to use and it can be hack at anytime. If you are using nulled scripts then I will suggest you not to use it. Its not safe for live website. You can use it for testing purpose. However, let me know if you guys use nulled/cracked script for testing purpose or for live website ?

I believe many people use cracked or nulled themes and scripts. The price of some of the themes and scripts I see some people using is a lot and being that sometimes they can afford one or more always makes me wonder. I myself would never and have never used nulled or cracked themes or scripts and I never will. My way of looking at this is that someone out there spent a lot of time and effort creating this, probably even put their own money into it and by you purchasing their products you are giving them the opportunity to update and even create newer scripts and themes. Anyone who downloads cracked or nulled I believe is stealing.

I use nulled scripts pending the time I have enough money to buy the legit scripts if am short on cash, even though I know the danger the use of nulled scripts poses. I find it uncomfortable using nulled scripts because, I pity programmers like myself who spent time and effort coding such scripts, it feels like theft using unauthorized version a script. I don't encourage the use of nulled scripts.

I don't use nulled and the stolen themes. I make use of the free frameworks on the WordPress.org. There are plenty of them out there. And these days you can see that nulled scripts are not that good with all those sites getting hacked. So it'd be worth checking out if it makes calls outside or not. I have seen that people who use such have the hacking issues most of the time as well. That's what I think.

You don't have to use nulled theme really, there are tons of free themes and plugin that are as good as the paid ones, the difference is the support, and if your website starts to gain audience, you'll be dependent on them to help you update and maintain your website, and it's going to cost you more than you'd expect.

I have used nulled/cracked scripts without knowing that I was using illegal copy of the script. However, these days I always try to avoid using cracked script. By using cracked script you are not only risking your website but also stealing someone's work without paying them.

If your website is just for personal purposes, it is logical to be frugal and save money by using the free items that you can find in the internet. To be honest, our desktop had a licensed anti-virus when we bought it. When the license expired, we downloaded a free version of Avast anti virus. We have been using that for years and we find it good although with that kind of free software, we have to re-install it every 2 months because it is a trial version.
