@benwerd Yeah, I totally hear where you're coming from, but I really think that tinkering with this sort of thing is going to lead to some very unfortunate consequences.

So, in the same way that free speech means that occasionally you're going to hear some people say reprehensible things, freedom 0 will sometimes mean your code is going to be used for purposes you wish didn't. But in both cases, this is a much better outcome than one group limiting the free exchange of ideas for another. The 20th century taught us in a very bloody way where this line of thinking inevitably leads.
