Is there really that lack of clues out there? I don't know whether to be more scared or saddened.

Ovid says:

there's a certain level of minimum knowledge assumed on the part of the reader.

Anyone see where I'm going with this?

The people merlyn is criticizing for bad security practices aren't going to be helped much by this post. These posts always remind me of the "Perl is Good, Praise Perl" posts that come up on this site. They're preaching to the converted. If you want to help solve the problem, you're going to have to explain things in terms those who you're criticizing can understand.

That said, merlyn's post is not without some value and I don't feel it calls for a downvote, I might even upvote it if he took that dot out of the title ;-).

    [Corion]: I think I'm overdesigning things again. I want to export(later, synchronize) data from Google Keep, by scraping the HTML. And I'm thinking of automating this by having a canary note whose text my program knows and from which it can determine the ...
    [Corion]: ... surrounding HTML to scrape all the other notes. Maybe I should better look at dumping all the requests that pass between Google and my "browser" instead.
