Not a fun part for me. It's sad that these concern have been raised by
a troll (or someone who doesn't know how to behave). However, these

Yes, people will be upset, too few to see things change. People
tortured in Guantanamo, Bradley Manning, list goes on... go through
things which are worse than death.
