I agree with Dan. He has a right to share something he found
interesting. Moreover, isn't the freedom to choose from different
options the whole essence of open source? By discouraging other sources
to exist, you're taking away a user's freedom to look elsewhere if she
does not agree with the information available on one site.
I was truly surprised to see such a mindset existing in the Open Source
