I am not enforcing anyone to do anything, just offering advice.

I disagree. If there is no way to enforce a security rule, every user must be
*trained* to understand it and know *why* he should uphold it.

If you have ever been a parent, you certainly know that just saying "that is
forbidden to touch" doesn't work. Rather, a real explanation *why* a child
should not touch something is the only way to have the child comply with the
rules.

If you just restrict people by rules, it *is* legitimate for them to break the
rules. If instead you teach people why they should uphold the rules, it *is*
*not* legitimate for them to break those rules. Legitimacy comes from
understanding, legality comes from obedience.

The OP is the only one who can judge what is legal and what is legitimate in
his own case.

Best, :-)
