"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.
All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
