>I am embarrassed to see that the majority of Blues readers can only reply to the VERY valid comments made by firstname.lastname@example.org in the form of personal insults.
I'm inclined to agree. I had generally assumed that a fair number of adult professional-types frequented this site, esp. since I've seen posts here from industry-insiders like Ken Hoekstra and others.
I'm not going to take the position that my opinion should by default mean anything to anyone, but I find email@example.com's arguments to be very lucid and appropriate. I am disappointed that a respected site like Blue's took the step of posting this illicit software and I agree with those pundits who herald this as another step toward the loss of free internet content. If respected news sites don't play by the rules, who will?
