Why are you so fascinated with talking to the type of people that would blindly choose to use Wil Wheaton's censorship list?

What if we have something in common and I would have stumbled across them to discuss something? We clearly have an interest in Star Trek. What if I make a product they'd like that they miss out on (and I miss their sale) because I'm blocked by them
If you're coming to Slashdot to get sympathy for your right to advertise your product to people that don't want to hear it (for whatever reason), you've probably come to the wrong place.
