*Points to your router* You know... this thing which isn't subservient to your computer OS and can, OMG, BLOCK whatever it wants no matter what your OS does? Please... stop with the fearmongering. I had numerous problems with win 10, but none to do with its supposedly Orwellian tendencies. Those can be dealt with very easily, it just takes time and a bit of effort.
First, pointing to the router and saying block it there is not addressing the problem. That's treating the symptoms and not the disease. Second, even if people have routers which allow doing this (which some won't), most won't know how to do it. Third, as shihonage explained even if you have the capacity and the know how, it isn't an easy problem to solve at the router. Fourth, finally and most importantly, why should I have to do this?
