This. Pretty much everyone who actually knows a lot about chess will agree with this statement. There are plenty of interesting ways to play for both sides in the Berlin.

I fail to see any reason to start banning openings. White has so many directions to go for even in the first 5 moves. There is no real advantage anywhere anyway.
