Of course it was tongue-in-cheek
It is sooo easy to say, don't buy DRM crippled stuff. Unfortunately, there are people who spend a good amount of money to have good quality playback equipment, and who want to enjoy that equipment to the fullest. No way around Blu-Rays. Will torrenting make the studios rethink DRM? I doubt it, as, contrary to what happened with audio, the file sizes exploded compared to the bandwidth available. Where it took, even on a meagure 28k analog modem an hour to transfer an album (iirc, could do the math, but don't want to), torrenting or other illegal download methods take multiple hours, if not days, to get things. My 0.02EUR.
But it is beside the point. Blu-Ray playback is not here at the moment. Blu-Ray ripping can be accomplished using MakeMKV. ripDiskWrapper.sh is a shell script which people can look at and amend to work with MakeMKV in case the makemkv binaries are available someplace on the system. Done.
