Thanks for answering.

Some of your arguments seemed valid to me. However, I saw them more as
some restrictions and reservations, rather than a devastating
demonstration that the Hoppe remarks are "obvious nonsense", as you

The problems he points seem to be quite real, on the contrary. The
extension of rights offered by the community do viciously result in
consequences contrary to what was desired.

Take care of your wrists and such ;-)
