It doesn't make sense to me.  We don't judge whether a program is
truly useful or not.  Anyway, different users might judge a program
differently in regard to its utility.

"Counter-productive" judges a program in practical terms.  If we are
talking about an _ethical_ point then we should describe it in
_ethical_ terms.
