OK Rudolf, let's put it in a very simple way: a kind neighbor says that the local kids can use his local lot, with a couple of minor rules. Do you call him a bad guy because you want to play the one game he forbids?
Matrix has a few simple rules, to which one has to agree to to register. Since you don't recall them, I decided to re-print them here for you:
