in reply to Node 541

merlyn raised another question : What does the existence of editors mean for Perlmonks ?
I did not.

I think my thrust was basically along the lines of:

  • In theory, there should be no reason not to discuss DeCSS here.
  • In practice, vroom probably has neither the deep pockets nor the will to fight the MPAA on Monestary turf.
Since the MPAA has been winning injunctions left and right, it's probably easier just to forbid this controversial subject here, and discuss it elsewhere where the pockets are deeper and wider.
