I'm not going to use the service either, but for different reasons
than you state. And it does have "many of the same flaws" as
But Sitefinder had only one fatal flaw: The Lack Of Choice.
Obviously that flaw is not shared.
Of course, everyone should feel free to espouse their opinions on the
service, and use it or not, and try to persuade others to use it or
not. But just like any other service, software, protocol, or other
_optional_ choice in running your network (or home computer), we will
just have to let the market decide. Chances are, there's enough
Internet to go around for everyone, whether they use the service or not.
