in thread Silly "encryption".....just for fun ;)
No apology necessary--my feelings aren't hurt.
Actually, I wasn't meaning to hurt your feelings either...I just thought it sounded like you were crying about it, rather than taking note of the little slice of The History of Encryption (at least so far as AutoComp '97 is concerned).
But your condescending, chiding tone is grating, and what you said was off the subject.
Anyone who wants to take that code and use it to encrypt credit card-related data will have to take Responsibility for their own ASSumptions. I have great faith that none of the readers here would mistake what I posted for strong encryption.
The real problem here is that all you had to contribute in your 2 posts was a condescending admonishment. Your valid opinion that the code is not cool enough for you is an assertion of your coolness. Genuine lack of maturity, I guess...
I care about the other users too. If I had dangerous code, I wouldn't post it. But even if I did, safety remains a matter of attitude.
I agree to disagree on whether what I posted was dangerous.
