With all due respect, and with full agreement that screen savers are not in 
general required to *protect the screen*... who are you to unilaterally 
declare what is and is not justifiable for a user to want to do with their own 

Do you mean that it is not justifiable by the reasoning of protecting the 
screen from damage? Because if so screensavers haven't been required for their 
original purpose for years and years now, that's nothing new.
