the system has always worked this way. as they say on the internet,
censorship or arbitrary restriction are considered damage which traffic
simply routes around. rules and restrictions by arbitrary commitees
are often nothing more then pointeless obstructions  that have little
bearing on what customers need or want.

if customers want open slather and some arbitrary commitee determins in a 
patriarcal fashion that they know better as to what constitues the common good
then you cant be surprised that customers simple work to play the system
to acheive the outcome they want.

giving customers what they want in business is called "customer focus", something
committees rarely have in there terms of reference.
