Bleach has been used in bombs around the world, should I not use it because there's a chance it's been used for (perceived) evil?



Cluster bombs have such blatant propaganda spread against them by well-meaning but naive individuals. Don't be fooled - look at all their positive uses!


That's not a like for like comparison, one is a bomb designed for destruction, one is software designed to solve a problem. The software isn't designed to kill, maim, or destroy, if it can be used as part of the process that doesn't make the software itself evil. Should we throw out linux systems since linux powers many control systems in war machines?
