Privacy Badger is just an example of the failure, not the core of the issue.

I cannot see the smiley but I am sure you meant it, right? (*)
I was without internet for the last week, and this was just the right time
[NOT] to discover that mythweb has issues, like no popups when viewing the
listing, no scrolling with the arrows on the time bar, and what not.
(*) The claim is so utterly wrong (ignoring security/privacy issues).
First, "those who want" may very well not be "those who can" - not everyone is a programmer.
Second, each time mythweb gets an update one needs to check if the "fix" needs to be repeated.
Third, the extra slowdown and bandwidth usage may be unwelcome by some.
