There's a big difference between scanning files and collecting them.

When they find a suspicious binary running and attacking other computers on the network, how do you propose to examine it without collecting it?

Sorry Mozilla, you have poisoned the well for many developers. The whole Brendan Eich situation and your cowering to the social justice warriors makes me not only avoid your products, but actively remind people that you are a sleazy political organization first, with a browser tool far second. Google's heart isn't much better but at least they have tact in their public relations.

Fuck Noo Yawk.

People who go to conferences are the ones who shouldn't.
