Well, yes they can be, so why fear them then? And why not let us discuss
what constitutes an ill informed source regarding anti-trust laws? Sweden
has none, so perhaps all of the Swedes are ill informed? And others
countries? Why not debate the matter instead of just leave it
unquestioned as a kind of dogma?

So then this is a list that really wants to hear only what its members --
or the ones who are speaking out here so firmly -- already believe. A
"bona fide" opinion my foot -- what on earth is that? Anyone's opinion
that is honestly advanced is bona fide, right, wrong, confused, whatever.
But if it turns out that the moderator of this list does not wish to hear
opinions with which the moderator or others do not agree, so be it -- I
believe in property rights and who have a right to control what is yours
(contrary to what some on this list believe about Microsoft).
