Streisand Effect and Microsoft Windows updates

It's been told, that Microsoft behaves in a way that would imply unfamiliarity with the concept known as Streisand Effect. Although I'm not 100% sure this will help block anything, I shall leave it to the reader to discover. I did glance through the source and did not find anything amiss.

So if you want to remove and block all those nasty updates Microsoft is forcing down your throat in the name of customer experience whilst seriously invading on your privacy check out this blog and this repository on Github.

Now I'm left wondering whether this was a really effective backdooring campaign or a tool that is too effective for Microsoft's liking. At least I won't have to worry about this since none of of my systems run Windows.
