"AnchorFree is dropping anchors and setting sail with a VPN give-away!"


Even the most-unknowledgeable land-lubber ought to be able to realize that
dropping anchor and setting sail are contradictory actions!

Or not. "Dropping" anchors clearly means getting *rid* of them, right? You
know. Like "dropping" a played-out lover. It's obvious.

Or maybe the point is that AnchorFree is getting out of the field of heavy
industry and getting into technology.
