    .. and then what does that mean? It means that we try to say that people
    cannot do what they LEGALLY can do?

    In other words, it means that we are pushing a agenda that is no longer
    neither a technical issue (it's clearly technically _worse_ to not be able
    to do something) _nor_ a legal issue.

    So tell me, what does the proposed blocking actually do?

    It's "big prother, FSF style". And I say NO THANK YOU.
