No, pinning only makes MITM attacks harder. It does nothing for my actual issue which you have ZERO solution for...

Do you even know what my primary complaint was about this encryption scheme? I've been pretty clear, but your comment about pinning makes it clear to me that you haven't been paying attention.

So here is a simple pass/fail test:

What is my primary problem with the current encryption scheme and why does pinning do literally nothing to address it?

You either answer that question correctly or you're either too stupid to have this conversation or just talking to yourself because you're not reading anything I am writing.

These discussions must be interactive or they just turn into stupid insult fights because one side or the other can't be bothered to fucking read what the other party is saying.

Except for it is because women were never excluded from technical education in the last 20 years or so.

And even RIGHT NOW they are not taking these courses.

So are universities sexist? The same universities that passed "yes means yes"?

The unis are if anything biased towards women which can be shown through a large number of statistics. If women wanted to do computer science, they would.

They don't.

Here you have the option of turning tail and scurrying away or backing up that "ignorance" charge. I assure you, if you stay put long enough, I will nail a dunce cap to your pointy little head. ;-)

Your move, chester.

Maybe call the timelines with names appropriate for them, or at least non-racist terms. I'd hate for them to settle on something as stupid as "Star Trek White" and "Star Trek Black".

Wait, are you asking for a grim and gritty reboot of "Let That Be Your Last Battlefield"?
