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.
