Module reviews are beneficial

in reply to Blatant security problem in certain CPAN module installs

I've tried to write about that problem in the CPAN reviews of those modules - but it seems that those modules are removed from CPAN. Is that a result of this discussion?

By the way I'd like to encourage people to write more reviews on CPAN and report such problems there. It is not very flexible mechanism - but it is the most central and most people searching for the module will see it (if only they click on the bottom not the upper link on the CPAN search engine). There was started a wiki for module reviews and I believe this would be an ideal way of discussing them - but unfortunately after Iain Truskett died it seems to be discontinued.
