@KronosillYour metaphors are not accurate or useful in framing the issue. You keep trying to portray Ensidia members as innocent or ignorant kids, but they are adults that accepted end user agreements this past Tuesday. A better metaphor would be a caravan of licensed drivers entering a newly constructed highway and noticing a speed limit sign posted as 750 miles per hour. As reasonable adults, they have every reason to believe the sign is an error, and obey normal speed limits, BUT for personal gain they decide to behave as if the ridiculous speed limit is accurate, and then get heavily fined for reckless driving when they are caught.They claim plausible deniability, but clearly as a group they had to communicate about the issue and make a decision on whether or not to treat the case as an error or as appropriate, and rather than act responsibly chose to gamble and test the consequences.Well, here are the consequences.
