You can explain it any way you want but it's still a product that's meant to take advantage of an ignorant audience plain and simple. Any person outside their audience knows where and how to get the software they want. There is no use for IM's service outside of the ignorant mass of computer users.

Consider another angle on this software: it is a direct contributor to the daily stress of IT people and the "computer person" found in many families.
