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.

Make it right before you make it faster.
