Having the DeCSS code posted on this site, when it has clearly been the source of large legal bills and site shutdowns, is a clear and present danger to the monestary.
Those of you who do not understand the phrase large legal bills resulting from innocent behavior have not seen
the site about my ongoing criminal case. Please do so.
vroom cannot afford this. I barely was able to, and it's taken every cent I've made from every book I've published, and working 60 hour weeks on top of it.
I think the right action was taken. Immediately remove the node that could have caused serious
damage to vroom's wallet, and possibly a fatal blow to the monestary.
And if after reviewing the risks, vroom wants it back, he can put it back.
When you see a child with a hand on a hot stove, you remove it immediately. It doesn't matter that you're not the parent or the babysitter. You know that the action invites danger.
