 Such arguments didn't stop the development of the Internet Archive
Wayback Machine (https://archive.org/index.php)

So, if they can do it, we can do it, too -- even won't be the first to do it.

I also thought about the argument that people / companies wouldn't
want to expose their proprietary data. There could be an anonymizer,
that takes your XML, and while preserving its exact structure
(document tree), renames any readable strings to random ones. You run
the anonymizer locally, so you never transmit your precious data on
the wire.

Truly great madness cannot be achieved without significant intelligence.
To invent, you need a good imagination and a pile of junk
Never fight an inanimate object
To avoid situations in which you might make mistakes may be the

Quality means doing it right when no one is looking.
You've achieved success in your field when you don't know whether what

To achieve the impossible dream, try going to sleep.
Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.

I finally figured out the only reason to be alive is to enjoy it.
