Rampant USA bashing is not likely to help your cause, and is in fact far more
likely to piss off a large number of people who might otherwise be inclined to
listen to what you have to say. As it is, you just come off sounding like a

good chunk of the debate is centered around the legality of distributing
content to places like Iran.
