If it wasn't direct malice, the block would have been removed ASAP. You just say it doesn't look direct malice because it is so blantantly malicious, you cannot imagine it happened.

Lets see: pedophiles, terrorists, drug dealers...

On the other hand, i agree that NSA should rather work on strengthening the security of "good people" instead of breaking it for everyone.
