I'm saying that if someone objects to the presence of  links they
don't actually use, they are speaking nonsense.  Might as well ask to
ban all packages from PyPI that they don't personally like -- it's the
same request.  Nobody is forcing you to depend on packages that don't
host on PyPI, so there is no point to the censorship.

If you don't use the links, you can't argue that their presence is
causing you harm.
