This is an annoying trend that's driving me nuts where I work to.. Somehow they are justifying it in the name of security. ( Even to the point of stripping comments from all applications.)

    I tend to ask people to elaborate on that, and ask them to explain how this is helping security. I also might point out that $ > /secret/file works even better (sure, it has some side-effects, but isn't security important enough that we can justify some side-effects?)

[Corion]: Oh, and the "o" in "com" is a zero

[ambrus]: Corion: ah. that's different. the ones I mean are selling at reputable sites like ebay that usually filters scammers out pretty quickly (as well as filters a lot of legitimate users who then get annoyed that the biggest providers exclude them)
[Corion]: ambrus: Yeah, if you provide the plausible story of "got it as a gift", buying that via Ebay might somewhat work. But I consider Ebay another harbor of scammers ;)
