What you did say in the sentence above (and I think is FUD) is, that BIP150 will lead to every node being identifiable. This is just completely wrong.
There is nothing to say against a technical debate (and we had this), but I will ask you to stop if I see you attacking BIP150/151 at every occasion with FUDish arguments like this.
