Well, Herr Garrison,
It represents an exercise in liberty. Some people guard their privacy more highly than others, whilst others are drawn to the bohemian nature of the SR. Given the Internet is not owned by any state, it is not for any of us to restrict access to such communications, unless it can be shown beyond reasonable doubt that such activity is detrimental to that state.
Far better that ten guilty men go free than a single innocent man is convicted.
"Herr" ...quite the stinging address that.
TY, this was a bit better for an explanation.
Now, FWIW Bricks, I agree with you on all points concerned. I would not for a second ask any government to restrict this. The only thing I would question is the usefulness of this particular venue for myself and others with any shred of moral integrity if it provides only access to those goods and services it is allegedly notorious for.
Now if it were the central hub for trading of rare TY Beanie Baby collectibles and My Little Ponies, then you would definitely have my attention.
I will not let any sovereign power restrict my access to collectible plushie toys!
