/Adults/ can say no (as indeed can non-adults), but /consenting/ adults
are, by definition, adults who say yes. If they say no, they are not
consenting. Consenting, by definition, means saying yes.
James's statement ("any application which restricts PUA use is
effectively precluding consenting adults from reaching and implementing
their private agreements") is correct. If you choose to redefine the
word "consenting" to mean "one who consents to using an application
which restricts the PUA" then I would argue that's just a silly
redefinition. A bit like defining a non-brothel as a place where
consenting adults can choose /not/ to pay each other for sex. It's not
what most of us mean by "consenting". I argue that James is correct, by
any reasonable definition.
