I'm going to guess that you _do_ agree with this (at least, with "pay"
used in its moral or ethical sense, not financial).

Personally, I think we've blown our wad on Adobe. We're going to have
to work hard just to get a pressure head up to fight the DoJ -- I'd
hate to divert any of that effort to less efficacious channels. I
agree that there's lots of individual effort that can go on, but I am
dubious whether the "Reparations for Dmitry" movement is going to pick
up much momentum.
