Your feelings are very interesting to know, but how this relates to the
original problem about privacy lists replacement? Seems like you're
trying to move the topic in another direction.

Yes, yes, I got your point: pay or do it yourself (GTFO, basically).
The problem with such approach is that users tend to search for another
project where developers don't treat them as complaining trolls.
Though, this is also irrelevant to the current discussion about privacy
lists :)
