Aargh! <emph>I, as a user, request to be respected, and not protected
from anything just because some group considers it harmful.</emph>

I can relate to protecting people from nuclear radiation, but do not
dig protecting someone that can think for himself from porn, drugs or
non-free software. Distributing or using these things may be immoral,
by some standard, but IMHO forcing those standard on people is not
ethically sound.

All in all, people should be able to choose on equal grounds. This is
all about freedom, remember?
