--------------------------------------
Status: Rejected
Type: Editorial

Reported by: Curt Self <curtself.cs@gmail.com>
Date Reported: 2018-10-02
Rejected by: Francesca Palombini (IESG)

Section: 3

Original Text
-------------
Note that in many cases clients can still access the denied resource
by using technical countermeasures such as a VPN or the Tor network.

Corrected Text
--------------
(remove the sentence)

Notes
-----
I understand that the status code itself is kind of a joke (Fahrenheit 451), but the sentence above seems to have no place in a technical document. It provides no insight into use cases for either a client or implementing software.
 --VERIFIER NOTES-- 
This statement went through IETF and IESG review as part of the original document. Removing it would be a material change to the contents of the document without first gaining consensus from the appropriate parties. The errata process cannot be used to make this kind of material change.
