Saving face is exactly the wrong motivation to fix security problems.

Why, exactly? If saving face motivates people to solve the problem, then I'm all for it. Frankly, I don't care if they fix the problem because they want to save face, impress their girlfriend or because little green men from the planet Weebo have told them to. I care about results. If the problem is fixed, the problem is fixed. Their motivation doesn't even enter my mind.

The difference between reality and unreality is that reality has so little to recommend it. -- Allan Sherman
