What about nuclear bombs, are we supposed to be scared of nuclear plants but not of bombs?

I feel there's a bit of irrationality at work here. Let's remember that using a nuclear bombs is a guarantee of both immediate and long-term death and pollution.

Fuck's wrong with you people?

So are you saying that money buys trust? How cynical. Let's see how well that goes down in the future.

The whole SSL ecosystem is based on the fact that you can absolutely trust the certificate authorities. The corollary to this is that, if a single CA is breached, then the whole system becomes untrustworthy. I'm confused as to why most of us still refuse to see that. Propoganda and disinformation? Well, the SSL world definitely represents a huge business, and it's clear none of its stakeholders is willing to see it blow up in smoke. Why let the facts and the truth get in the way of business?
