Is it still true that passwords are merely advisory? I have difficulty finding information for this after Acrobat 5. . .

    All versions of Acrobat honor all passwords contained in a PDF. But, the PDF format itself treats passwords as advisory. So, it's a format issue, which means that any given client may choose to honor the passwords ... or not.

    Being right, does not endow the right to be rude; politeness costs nothing.
    Being unknowing, is not the same as being stupid.
    Expressing a contrary opinion, whether to the individual or the group, is more often a sign of deeper thought than of cantankerous belligerence.
    Do not mistake your goals as the only goals; your opinion as the only opinion; your confidence as correctness. Saying you know better is not the same as explaining you know better.
