I'm also against lock picking books being sold to the general public. My point should be obvious and it's pitiful that nobody has supported me.

Cripes, where to begin with you? Start with Locks and Full Disclosure, concerning a dirty little secret confined to lock makers, locksmiths and criminals for over a century. I call that dishonorale and pitiful, that a whole century goes by, and that an outsider has to make a stink, before they clean up their act and fix their mess.

I can't think of a a better corrective than the public exposure and humiliation of a published exploit to get lazy a*****s to fix their shoddy goods. Sort of like putting them in stocks and letting the public jeer and throw rotten vegetables at them, in a non-violent free market style.

Mister, you should bow down and kiss the feet of everyone who blows a whistle: the world becomes measurably safer every time we act on their information.

I wonder if this phenomenon is limited to the Perl community. Maybe there is too strong a bond between O'Reilly and Perl. I'll probably spread this information around to see how other groups respond.

Troll, troll, troll: implying moral turpitude for not supporting your views. How pitifully Ashcroftian of you. If I had another PM username, I'd downvote you twice.
