Serious question: Why don't you become the new maintainer yourself, if you honestly believe you can do a significantly better job at it than the current person(s)?

I don't do it myself because I can not guarantee that I wouldn't make even worse mistakes. I'm glad there are people out there who are willing to do the job, and I'm in no position to bite their heads off when they mess it up. And you're probably glad that I'm not a maintainer of anything even remotely security-related :-)

How does your post help the submitter? Your post and now mine aren't any more helpful than those you call unhelpful drivel.

I use both Windows and Debian GNU/Linux. Both work fine for me. There are nice and not-so-nice people in both Windows and Linux communities. The niceness of the community doesn't have anything to do with technical superiority or inferiority of the operating systems (or kernels if you will).

Nice story, sounds quite familiar. Nowadays it's so easy to find tools and applications for almost anything that I usually don't feel the need to code stuff (I did it professionally for a while but I'm back to being a hobbyist coder). I wonder if I'm just not that interested in programming any more, or whether it's because I haven't had an itch to scratch in a while.

I see. I wonder what benefits Chase sees in the system; it seems to me that security-wise there is a downside in using login usernames for payment addressing. I'm not familiar enough with US banking to figure out the upsides, but most probably the system will lower costs somehow.

Password reset process maybe, but wouldn't creating an account (in the online banking sense, not a bank account) require a visit to the branch in person? That's what I remember doing quite a few years ago when I started doing banking online. Money transfers use IBANs or a similar system of account numbers, which are separate from login usernames.
