Not to be argumentative, but by that logic, I guess it is okay to drive my 
1948 Ford which doesn't have brakes if I don't have the cash to fix it.

It may be a reason, but not a valid reason.  Intentionally running a computer 
in a manner which can do substantial damage to others is not an option.

We run AV on our systems which are Linux based to insure that nothing goes 
thru our network which could harm others.
