Anyway it's better do not touch this heap of troubles named ORBS. Those who
wanted did protected themself by filtering them out; if you open some kind of
lawsuite it force them to change the provider, not more - and cause sysadmins to
protect themselves once more... Don't trouble troubles and troubles don't
trouble you -:).

I do not want discuss if ORBS is good or bad - it EXIST.
