[Greasemonkey] Watering Smoldering Flames Out in the Real World

I've been replying to various commentaries by people re:
Gm out and about. ('unofficially', of course, as a Gm user)
Here is today's, for example.
People are making an awful big 'to do' about Greasemonkey and what it 
can do and is being used for. As well they should. But what I'm talking 
about are the "Doom and Gloom" and "negative" comments and predictions 
and such. Let's face it, no matter how popular Greasemonkey gets, at 
BEST, maybe 10% to 25% of Firefox users will use it. MAYBE 50%, but 
probably not. And only a (small) percentage of those will, for example, 
use the "get rid of Google ads" script(s). (I won't be doing that, for 
one) So, for Google, or Yahoo, or anyone else, to "freak out" and throw 
a lot of money at "fixing the problem" is a waste of time, money and 
resources. Can't we all just get along? ;o)
