"No, terrible analogy."

You seem to think that because you are too stupid to understand it, that it is incorrect.

"Michael Jordan is a paid professional. You are not, but because you are free, thousands cheer for you, after all, you never miss a basket (because thousands cheer for you).

Blam, you miss a basket. Only fucking idiots would still be cheering for you."

You are too stupid to figure out that the people who write OSS are more often than not professionals. The fact that you think ametuers could write something as complex and ubiquitous as OpenSSL is prima facia evidence of your idiocy. Now off you go little cognitively challenged troll ...

" It doesn't take much of a leap to understand open source it what it is, a free less than ideal solution that is NO competitor to closed source."

Well that certainly explains why you are so upset about it!

"Multiple eyes on code, security, these are things that are great about open source, except they aren't. This is a prime example of how bugs get through anyhow, major bugs. "

No, but your post is a prime example of some idiot trying to win an argument he can't possibly win by trying to reframe the discussion with lies. Nobody ever made the claim that FOSS is bug free, and you are a complete moron for trying to act is though they did.

I used to think that Michael Jordan is much better than me at basketball, but then he missed a basket, which according to you is proof I'm better than him!

Re Somebody would have caught the unusual requests.
If a gov wants to sit between you and your site, the logs of your site would reflect whatever the gov wants.
They have man in the middle, fake sites and efforts like TURBINE would show very little skilled, attentive admins.

Expect to see a lot more stories like this ie "Availability of Public Diplomacy Program Material Within the United States"
Most of this kind of news was run by the US gov around the world but not for US domestic consumption.
The limits on this kind of gov backed PR, spin within the US ie the Smith-Mundt Act are now lifted.
The sock puppets and public diplomacy types will be flooding US news sites with this kind of material as stories and then shaping comments.

I am talking about first instance causality. Clearly if the other people stood up to him and did their job it wouldn't have been a successful attempt, but even then you clearly admit that the story would be about the mayor and his actions, or more likely of course no story at all. The fact remains that he initiated the action. Yes others have culpability in the degree to which his actions succeeded, but it was his actions. He has the ultimate culpability in the matter. He is exactly as culpible as he would be if the Judge didn't grant the warrant. There is no difference from a "who's ultimately to blame?" standpoint..

Re Has anyone, anywhere, seen an instance where a move like this actually works out well?
Think of the banana republic model and the way the USA looked after South and Central America over many decades.
Experts arrived, products and services where imported, the raw materials where exported and local wages kept down.
Shareholders in the US got to enjoy generational wealth and their `"trust" funds grew.
The system works great, you just have to adjust to the role of seasonal shanty town worker or at best an on call technician - local middle class engineering is just too costly in todays networked world.

Its happens in a lot of US sectors from mil to computers to support.
You set up a 100% US based firm to lobby for and sign off on US work, all the US legal needs, US contracting, US academic. State/federal US requirements are met.
At the back end is massive complex reality of a 24/7 cost saving outsourcing/offshoring service.
A massive reduction in US costs, a massive flow of long term cash out of the US for decades services all via a 100% Made in the USA success story.

He sought said warrant didn't he? Whom should we blame if not the idiot who sought the warrant. Yes it never should have been granted, but it probably was granted because he's the Mayor and he has that kind of power. So again, I ask you, whom should we blame if not the guy who abuses his power to seek a warrant in a case where no such warrant was ... well ... warranted.
